Welcome to our worship this morning. A special welcome for any of you who are with us for the first time, or who are visiting family or friends. May the peace of Christ be with us all.
TEAM SERVICE 30th Sept, Whitchurch on Thames. Please be there !
I’d like to remind everyone across all the Langtree parishes that Bishop Colin Fletcher will be joining us at our next Team Service, on the 30th September, at 10.30am at St. Mary’s Whitchurch. Please make a special effort to attend, (no matter which parish is your “home”) not just in support of the confirmation candidates but because, like it or not, the Bishop will take away an impression of our Team Ministry from the degree of committment that he witnesses at our joint service.
Thank you in advance for your support !
New Rector for Henley and Remenham
A good deal of the work of a Bishop is to do with the “recruitment” side of things in the ministry of the church – working with parishes to help them find new ministers and managing the rather lengthy and complicated process. We should rejoice that Henley and Remenham have been able to appoint the Revd Jeremy Taylor as their new incumbent. Jeremy will be licensed at a special service at Henley a week Monday (24th). Please do pray for him and his family who will shortly be coming to the deanery.
Order of St Birinus – well done Mary and Michael !
Finally the Bishop will also be in action this afternoon at Dorchester Abbey, where the annual service for the Fellowship of St Birinus will be held at 5pm. The order of St Birinus was insititued by Bishop Colin as a way of honouring those lay people who have given outstanding service to their local church and community. We rejoice that this year, from the Team, Mary and Michael Weller of Checkendon are being inducted as members of the Order. Many congratulations to Mary and Michael !
Yours in the service of Christ Revd Canon Kevin Davies
