October has arrived and brings with it some exciting events on the horizon. Men’s breakfast on the 17th boasts 3 bishops not just our own. one more and we would have enough for a game of chess!
And, of course, the Fair is just around the corner! (Where did that year go?). As always, we are looking for items to sell, people to look after stalls and help beforehand as we sort everything out. The fair raises a considerable amount of money for us – any help is much appreciated.
We continue to host our regular weekly and monthly events with the premises being in full flow. Sadly we have had several funerals recently and had to say farewell to members of the congregation and community. Many, many thanks to everyone who rallies together on these occasions – church at its best.
October also sees me off to Auckland for two special events. the first is to collect Rosie on her return after three months away. The second is to attend a conference on Mission with an exciting list of speakers.
And then, all too soon, All Saints’ day will be upon us and I say farewell after 3 extremely happy years here. More of that later but it seems appropriate to leave on All Saints’ Day if you’ve got to go!
The bishop will be at my last service on Sunday Nov 1st – a 6.30 service with Holy Communion – do come along if you can.
Monday – Wednesday : 10 am – 12 noon
Sunday : 8 am – 12 noon & 6.30 pm – 8pm
We are a Fairtrade Church
