LiFT 28th April
Good evening lovely people,
How are you?
I do hope you have had an enjoyable Easter and that you were able to celebrate and spend it in ways that worked for you, including with church. We are of course still in the Easter season, right up until Pentecost but that probably doesn’t mean we can continue to eat vast amounts of chocolate!!
Just a couple of dates for your diary – the bishop will be bringing into existence the new Ministry Area on Thursday 26th May, at a special service in Raglan Church, at 7pm. That day is also Ascension Day. I rather like the idea that as Christ ascends to be with his Father, we will be joining together as friends old and new, forging a new beginning, in the body of Christ. The service will be lovely and everyone is very welcome.
Then on Sunday 29th May, which is the fifth Sunday in the month, we will be joining together in Usk Church for a Ministry Area Eucharist. Again everyone will be very welcome,and I hope you might come to enjoy worship in a full church.
With regard to the new Ministry Area, we are keen to have wide representation across our churches. If you would like to be part of the new Council I have attached the nomination form. You will need to find someone to propose and second you. Not all roles have a defined title, there are several “without portfolio” and I would highly recommend that you think about these roles, to ensure that we have as many different voices as possible.
Last but not least, I want to give you my thanks – I took a few days off last week and as you always do, you honoured it in ways that I boast to other clergy about. Thank you so much for respecting my rest time, you really are an awesome group of people, and every day I give thanks for you.
You know where I am if you need me. And below are the links for Compline and Morning Prayer.
