In the week before Pentecost, communities and churches around the world are gathering together to pray that their friends, families and neighbours come to know Jesus. And we are going to be part of that global movement of prayer, with prayer walks around each of our villages. Please join us on any or all of the walks listed below. Each one will start in the church at 7.00pm and end around 8.00pm at the local pub.
Please come along and support our fundraiser for the tower repairs at St Leonard's Church
Please come and enjoy an afternoon wandering around our lovely gardens and enjoying some refreshments along the way, while helping raise funds for our major roof repairs at St. Lawrence Church
At the beginning of May we welcomed Revd Carol Newborn to the Bridges Group at her Licensing. St Lawrence was full, as friends from her old church came to say farewell, as well as members of all our village churches. Carol came to help Revd Gillian as part of a 3 month sabbatical and she liked it so much she applied for the job!! Please give her a warm welcome when you see her out and about around the villages and we all look forward to her ministry in our villages. Carol’s role is a part time non-stipendiary covering the 6 churches in the Bridges Group.
An announcement has been made in our churches that Rev. Celia Parkes (subject to the usual formalities) is to be the next Associate Minister on a House for Duty basis in the Bridges Group of Parishes. Celia is currently serving in a group of parishes in the Diocese of Chelmsford. It is hoped she will be taking up the appointment before the end of the summer when a date for her licensing can be arranged. Please pray for Celia as she prepares to join our ministry team.
Please see the attached poster for details of this concert.
