Notes August/September 2018

As I write these notes we are enjoying one of the best spells of weather for a long time and we hope it continues for the holiday season! We got a splendid day for our Car Boot Sale and an excellent response of over £1500 towards the Parish Hall Restoration Fund. Thanks to everyone who supported the event!

Our Bus Pass Explorers are once again on the move with visits to Armagh – an afternoon on the Mall, Enniskillen and Castlerock. On Thursday 16th August the destination will be Whitehead and the Railway Preservation Society.

During August life in the Parish goes into a quieter mode, but please note the following:-

HOLY COMMUNION at 1030am: Mon 6th: for the Transfiguration and Friday 24th (St Bartholomew), followed as usual by refreshments.

Looking ahead to September, organisations resume their activities as announced in Church...

HEALING SERVICES: resume on Sunday 2nd September at 7pm in Church;

SUNDAY SCHOOL: resumes on Sunday 9th September at 10am and we look forward to welcoming everyone back for the new session – with some new teachers and pupils!

MOTHERS’ UNION: The new season gets underway with our branch meeting on Thursday 13th September with an “Evening Supper” and the Rural Deanery Service on Wed 19th September in St Swithin’s at 8pm.

BACK TO CHURCH SUNDAY: falls on Sunday 30th September and we would encourage parishioners who for one reason or another have not been attending to avail of this opportunity to get back to church!

PERSONALIA: Parishioners were saddened to learn of the recent death of Mrs Audrey Kenny widow of the late Canon Percy Kenny, Rector from 1974 to 1982. They left behind many happy memories in the Parish when they went out to Nigeria with CMS in 1983!

SAFEGUARDING TRUST: Our annual review meeting for all Youth Leaders, Sunday School teachers and Parish Visitors will be held in the Hall on Monday 8th October at 830pm.
