Church Opening for Private Prayer - our hope is that St Saviour's will open this week for those wishing to visit for private prayer (pending approval from the dioceses). The PCC has agreed that the opening times should reflect when our churches would normally be open each week:
N.B. There are strict guidelines on safety that must be followed by all visitors to church as well as those volunteering to be stewards supervising each opening time.
Geraint’s Ordination - Our thoughts and prayers are with Geraint as he makes the final preparations in his vocational journey to being the next assistant curate of the parish of Llangynwyd with Maesteg. As the old cliche goes ‘Our loss is their gain’. We look forward to welcoming him back to St Saviour’s as an ordained deacon later in the year.
Sts Peter & Paul - Please pray for all those training for ministry in our province and those currently discerning a call to diaconal and priestly ministry. Pray too for all those who celebrate the anniversaries at this time to ordained ministry in the church.
Parochial Church Council - Next meets on Zoom this on 5 Aug at 7pm.
Prize Draw Could those who have tickets (or sold tickets) please now return them with the money. 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 this coming 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 Jemima Thackray, a freelance journalist and part time ordinand.
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 later in July, on Wednesdays at 7pm via Zoom.
Recently Departed - Dudley Walwyn, Bernard Lewis (RIP)
