 Archbishop’s Pastoral Letter for General Election

 

To All Members & Friends of St Faith’s

Just a little reminder that Saturdays at St Faith now have a new shape, all from 10am.

First Saturdays remain our monthly Coffee Morning.  (We raised over £163 last week!)

Second Saturdays are now ‘Maintenance Parties’ – with an open invite for anyone who is free to join in with the task of gradually improving our church building for the whole community.

Third Saturdays are now ‘Cafe Church’ days – with Coffee from 10am, and discussion from 11am.  Our discussion, on Saturday week, will be on the theme ‘Where is God when suffering strikes?’

Fourth Saturdays are currently kept free for special events (there are none this month).

This coming Saturday (13 May) is therefore ‘Maintenance Party-time’.  Our churchwardens and I will be there, and we’re hoping that as many of you as possible can join us.  There’s plenty to do including cleaning of floors and windows, painting of walls and radiators, linseed oiling of wooden furniture, staining of exterior woodwork, painting of gutters, general tidying of the churchyard (including litter picking).  And if anyone wants to come and make tea for the workers…you’ll be most welcome too!

Then, on the next Saturday (20 May), we have two fantastic events.  Cafe Church, I’ve already mentioned.  Then in the evening, you are warmly invited to the St Faith’s Variety Show, in the Pallant Centre (Church Hall).  A fantastic evening of laughs and music is guaranteed, along with an open bar!  I attach a poster with further details.  

Tickets for the Variety Show are selling fast (yes..,,really they are!).  So grab one in church on Sunday, or email Colin Hedley to reserve yours today.  (colin_hedley@btinternet.com )

And finally – do join us this coming Sunday for our 9.30am Parish Communion, when we look forward to welcoming back Bishop John Hind as Celebrant and Preacher.  (Bishop John has been helping out at other local parishes for the last few months, so it will be good to have him ‘back home’ at St Faith’s)

Best wishes to all,

Tom
