Welcome to you all to our Team Service this morning ! It is wonderful to be able to gather as one church family, just now and then, and “see what we look like all together before God”. At the very least our singing is louder, and we get a chance to hear/see other members of our Christian family who normally worship in another parish church. So we can encourage one another and build each other up in our Christian walk.
Thank you, and visitation service date.
Many thanks and congratulations to those of you who have recently been elected as churchwardens, treasurers and secretaries and to your church councils. Wardens are reminded that this year’s “visitation service” will be on Thur May 17th at St Mary’s Henley at 7.30pm, where you will be sworn in for your year of office by the Archdeacon of Dorchester. Other PCC members are also welcome to attend. Please hold St Mary’s Henley in your prayers as they begin advertising for a new Rector to succeed Canon Martyn Griffiths who retired in January.
Your prayers are also asked for those being married in Team churches in the coming months. In particular for Ed McIlroy and Catherine Cran, to be married at Stoke Row on 9th June, and for Hugh Stilgoe and Fiona Playford, to be married at Checkendon on 16th June. Not forgetting James Freeman and Annabel Bacon, to be married at Checkendon on 23rd June. Let the bells ring out!
May the Lord bless you and keep you, and give you joy.
Your Rector Revd Canon Kevin Davies
