A very warm welcome to this service, wherever you are worshipping this morning in the Langtree Team Ministry area. May God’s grace and mercy be with us all.
Please could I this week ask for your prayers for Revd James Stickings, and his family, who have recently moved into the Rectory at Kidmore End. James will be installed as the Rector of Kidmore End, Sonning Common, and Peppard on Thursday 29th September.
The following day sees the inauguration of the ministry of Rt Rev Dr Steven Croft as our new Bishop of Oxford in a special service at Christ Church cathedral. Our Archdeaconry are hosting a service of welcome for Bishop Steven at Dorchester Abbey on Sunday 9th October at 3.30pm, to which we have all been invited.
So, all change around us, not only in the world, but also in the Diocese of Oxford ! We rejoice in the constancy of the love of God, and the knowledge of that love in the face of Jesus Christ.

Let us rejoice in God’s love as we enjoy these autumn days, when the turning seasons remind us once again of the reliability of change as a fact of life.
Your Rector and Area Dean Revd Kevin Davies
