LiFT 15th September
Good evening lovely people,
A couple of really important things to tell you and I don’t want you to have got bored with the wittering and not spot them, so straight in with them –
Sunday Service in Tredunnock change
Just this Sunday, 18th September, the service at Tredunnock has moved to be in Llanhennock Church at 10am. This is to combine congregations to cover a short notice change to the rota to accommodate Kevin’s compassionate leave. Thank you very much to Canon Arthur Edwards for being willing to adapt, and well done Gerry and Jill for coming up with the plan! Thank you too to the congregation of Tredunnock for being willing to worship in Llanhennock, it was certainly the most sensible way round to share. I really am very grateful for the flexibility and cheerful way that you all cope with this sort of thing, thank you!
Ministry Area Service for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth
There is a service in Raglan Church on Friday (16th) at 7pm, which everyone is invited to, across the whole MA. I know some churches have already had local opportunities to reflect upon the death of Her Majesty, but this promises to be a lovely service and I hope that some of you will be able to make it.
And now for the chatty bit!
It occurs to me that I always have something to thank you for. You all work so hard, and step up to be active parts of all that the church is doing locally, you really are amazing! I’ve noticed this week that some of you have just got on with organising local ways of ensuring that there are opportunities for reflection in our churches, many of you helped at the Usk Show, pastoral visiting, Open the Book, leading services, our work with older people, those from Ukraine, toddlers, everyone! And that’s before we think about all the work to ensure our buildings are safe and welcoming. It really is a huge team effort and I don’t want you to think that I don’t notice or appreciate every single one of you. You’re fab! Thank you for all that you do. I feel very lucky to be included in the life of all our villages and communities.
And now, I’m going to have a little glass of something and put my slippers on!
Lots of love to you all, you know where I am,
