Weekly new for 16.4.23

Dear Friends

Here is the news for this week. Please remember our upcoming APCM and the vacancies to be filled.

A little word

There are different kinds of spiritual gifts, but they all come from the same Spirit. There are different ways to serve the same Lord, and we can each do different things. Yet the same God works in all of us and helps us in everything we do.                                                                                                                                                1 Cor 12.4-6 (CEV)

Our APCM is looming on the horizon. New life in Jesus means each one of us has an important place in His family. There are lots of ways we can serve each other. As well as the ‘up front’ stuff there are vital jobs that keep our church running for everyone’s benefit. If you are practical with your hands, or good at numbers, or good with IT or a good listener, we can find a role for you. Serving on the PCC is important too. Our Church Wardens and their deputies help make things run smoothly, and we need new ones. Could it be you? Please ask for more info. If the team is full the job is easier too.

Things to pray for

  • Give thanks for all our Easter and Holy week services and what we learnt and celebrated.
  • For Mike, Christine and John having faithfully served us as wardens and deputies.
  • For those who will step up to serve us as our church officers.
