Parochial Church Council - Next meets on Zoom this Wed 24 June at 7pm. Usual updates will be discussed as well as lockdown transition and compliance. We need to discuss reopening the foodbank and how to prepare the church for visitors wanting to pray privately.
Farewell to Geraint - Geraint is now in the final run up to his ordination as deacon and has been told to say farewell. He has written a letter saying just that and expressing his gratitude. Copies of this are available as well as on our website. We hope to have a formal ‘do’ when we can all say a proper ‘thank you’ for his ministry with us later in the year when lockdown has eased. In the meantime we wish him ad multos annos and every blessing in his future ministry.
Sts Peter & Paul - Petertide (next Sunday 29 June) is traditionally the time when many ordinands are ordained deacon & priest. Please pray for all those training for ministry and those currently discerning a call to diaconal and priestly ministry.
Meeting of Households - if any church households would like a safe place to meet then St Saviour’s garden could possibly be a perfect venue. Just let us know when you’d like.
Prize Draw - As restrictions start to ease we can now turn back to our annual prize draw. Tickets are still available for those who want to join in. Could those who have tickets (or sold tickets) please now return them with the money. The best bit of course is that we are now gathering the prizes that have been pledged. Again, see Liz or Fr Phelim about ways to collect this and, eventually, to distribute them to the winners.
Zoom Coffee Mornings - St Saviour’s next meets on Wednesday 1 July at 10:30am. If you’d like to participate please let Fr Phelim know. If you need help on the day and time please call Fr Phelim on the landline.
Lift Up Your Hearts - Spiritual Support during the pandemic. This week’s reflections are from Chine McDonald, an activist with Christian Aid and trustee of Greenbelt.
Faith Nurturing - The next faith nurturing group will be a book group looking at ‘In Search of a Way’ by Gerard Hughes SJ. This will begin in July, more than likely via Zoom.
Recently Departed - Dudley Walwyn, Bernard Lewis (RIP)
