A very happy new year to you all, from all of us on the Langtree Team Ministry staff ! May God’s peace and the joy of Jesus Christ be with you, throughout this year.
A week Tuesday (17th) the Team Council will be meeting at The Rectory to decide upon this years budget, and to discuss ministry with children and young people across the Team. Please ensure your PCC is represented !
Please also pray for the couples preparing to be married across the Team area in 2017. The first of our Marriage Preparation classes will be held on Sat 21st at Checkendon School (appropriately!)
The last few tickets for the Oxord University Jazz Orchestra jazz evening at Checkendon on Fri 27th Jan are available from Honor on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Finally, I would like to invite you all to my installation as an Honorary Canon of Christ Church Cathedral which is to be part of the service on evensong at the Cathedral on Saturday 28th January, at 6pm.
The service is to be followed by a drinks reception in the cathedral. This event is not ticketed, but for catering purposes please do let me know as soon as possible if you would like to attend.
By way of explaination, this is not a “new” job, in that I will remain Team Rector of the Langtree benefice, but it is an honorary title for “distinguished service to the church in the Oxford Diocese”, and, as my partners in the gospel in our little part of this diocese, I’d be really honoured if as many of you as possible would like to attend.
Wishing you every blessing this week in Christ’s service.
Your Rector Revd Kevin Davies
