The arrival of June means that we are almost halfway to Christmas! How are your preparations going? I have just been back in the UK where bluebells and cowslips were in full bloom looking delightful.
Back in the parish we have had a busy season with plenty happening. The Missionary Service League (MSL) has undergone a slight change in format with evening meetings catering for those who work during the day. No change in the emphasis of the role of MSL (we remain grateful to the legacy left to us by Enid Lemmon) but an attempt to encourage those involved in mission to share their common goals and hopes.
We’ve had two working bees, a very successful ‘garage plus’ sale, a visiting speaker from Sri Lanka, a coffee morning for Oxfam (actually, coffee all day!) which combined with a book sale launch, a Vestry day, Pentecost and Trinity. Just writing it all makes me feel exhausted!
