A very warm welcome to this Team Service. May the joy of the risen Lord be with you all.
May I ask for your prayers this week specifically for all the members of our ministry Team here in Langtree ? We will be heading to the convent at Wantage on Friday for our annual Quiet Day together, where we will be reflecting and praying together, and seeking God’s call and leading for us as we grow in love and service for one another, and for you.
Members of the Team Ministry Council are reminded that our next meeting will be held on Tuesday 9th of May, at Ipsden Vicarage at 8pm. Please ensure that your PCC sends at least one representative, as the important matters of Lay Ministry, and Safeguarding across the Team are being discussed.
A date for your diaries a long way ahead: Bishop Steven (our new Bishop of Oxford) will be visiting the Henley Deanery on Thursday 20th July. There will be an evening meeting at Shiplake where all churchwardens and PCC members are very warmly invited to attend to hear the Bishop speak and to put questions to him. More details to follow, but in the meantime, please make a note of the date.
Rejoice in the Lord, always !
Your Rector Revd Canon Kevin
PS. Please also pray for Michael Mattia and Emily Tooher, to be married at Checkendon on 27th May.
