Sts Peter & Paul - Petertide (Sunday 29 June) is traditionally the time when many ordinands are ordained deacon and priest. Please keep in your prayers all those training for ministry and those currently discerning a call to diaconal and priestly ministry. We pray especially for our own ordinands, Geraint and Natasha, and thank God for their ministry with us.
Meeting of Households - if you’d like a safe place to meet other households then St German’s Memorial garden could be a perfect venue. Just let us know when you’d like.
Lockdown Transition - With the good news that schools are opening on 29 June we are still hopeful that places of worship will be allowed to open again for small acts of worship or quiet prayer. It is important that our buildings remain always available and exist to be of service to the people of our local area. Our PCC will discuss this when we next meet and how we might best plan for safety and social distancing guidelines.
Parochial Church Council - Next meets on Zoom on Monday 22 June at 7pm. Usual updates will be discussed as well as lockdown transition and compliance.
Zoom Coffee Mornings - St German’s next meets on Wed 17 June 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.
