Thanks from Ben

Dear Friends, I was very touched by the kind words, cards and gifts which sent me on my way after our Easter services. I will be at the Cathedral on placement for four months, and will return to St Mary's in September. I look forward to seeing you soon--and in the meantime, I am still at the end of my phone or email if you want to keep in touch. ---Ben

“Older People” Spirituality Group, Friday 13th May 1pm

First of all thank you for your support and good wishes for my commissioning as an Anna Chaplain last month. It has been a whirlwind for me since then and because of being struck down with Covid I don’t seem to have seen many people to say thank you, but I did appreciate that you were thinking of me. I have now started to slowly to work in the parish and am happy to visit you at home if any of you, or friends and family you know would like a visit.

The other plan which has been in the pipeline for far too long, due mainly to Covid restrictions, is now ready to be launched on Friday 13th May at 1pm. I hope as many of you as possible will come to the meeting and sandwich and cake lunch to discuss what you would like this group to be and do, and also what you would like to call it!

I hope to welcome lots of you so that this new venture can lift our spirits and enable us all to move forward after a difficult time. Friends and non church members are very welcome. For catering purposes can you please sign up on the sheet in the table in the vestibule by Sunday 8th May so that I can order food.

I look forward to seeing you, to talk and share food. Thank you, Beryl Austoni

Christian Aid Swap shop and soup lunch in Church, Saturday 21st May

This is an opportunity to recycle those random lock down purchases and replace them with something more satisfying. Please sort out anything suitable for a table top sale, bring it along on the day and be prepared to take it home if it doesn’t find a new owner.

A message from Ruth Blake

Thank you for holding my childhood friend, Ron House, in your prayers. Ron is terminally ill and paralysed now from the waist. He has a strong faith, is comfortable, relatively pain free, has wonderful support and many visitors. Please continue to hold Ron and Judith in your prayers even if his name is not on our prayer list. Many thanks.

REMINDER: Holy Communion

Advice for Wine at Holy Communion From Maundy Thursday onwards you will be able to receive both bread and wine at Holy Communion if you wish. Please bear in mind the following:

  • You should not feel pressured into receiving the wine unless you feel comfortable to do so.

  • You must not 'intinct' the wafer, i.e. if you are going to receive the wine, you must drink from the chalice, not dip your wafer into it. Whilst this seems simple, it can dirty the wine, as well as contaminate the wine for those who require gluten-free communion.

  • Please do not receive the wine if you are unwell; our advice is still to stay at home if you are sick--for whatever reason.

  • You do not have to be consistent. If you would like to receive one week, and not the next, that is fine. There will be no judgment on your spiritual practice.
