A very warm welcome to you all to our worship this morning. May God’s blessing in our Lord Jesus be upon us as we celebrate our risen and ascended Lord.
This coming Thursday (17th) sees the Archdeacon of Dorchester make her visitation to the Henley Deanery, at St Mary’s Henley at 7.30pm. This is the annual service where newly elected churchwardens are sworn into office for the coming year. PCC members from across the team are welcome to attend to support your churchwardens as they become “Bishop’s Officers” for another term.
Next Sunday is Pentecost, when the church celebrates God’s gift of the Holy Spirit, poured out upon the first apostles, and also given to us today as we respond to the love of Christ in faith and committment. Services are detailed on the back page of these notices. Let us thank God for his wonderful gifts of grace !
Finally, in the quiet moments before or after your worship today, please pray for those who are finding life difficult for any reason, and also remember to give thanks for one or two little things without which your life would be the poorer.
Your Rector Revd Canon Kevin Davies
