The Vicar's Monthly Message

03/06/2018

The Church events in May all went well. The Fashion Show in The Parish Hall organised by the Fund-Raising Committee was well-attended and an enjoyable evening, with excellent refreshments. The Tea Party in Siward James was a pleasant afternoon and raised a good amount for the Diocesan M.U. Crisis Intervention Fund and we all enjoyed the Quiz Evening.

The collection for Christian Aid took place 13th – 19th May. Our previous organiser has moved away and we are looking for someone to take this on. Some Charities have had a bad press this year but not Christian Aid. As we look at the news, we see there are still many areas of conflict, starvation and poverty, where there are persecuted people and hungry children. So it is good to support the Charities which can help them.

We have three Weddings in June in St Michael & All Angels Church and others booked this year and next year. People say the Church lends itself to Weddings It is in a quiet, pretty setting with its lychgate and has a good organ and a fine peal of bells.

Do come to the Concert to be given by the Pax Singers in church on Saturday, 16th June at 7.30pm. They have a varied programme. It makes a pleasant summer evening if we are able to open the South door and take our drinks outside in the interval.

Ember Days occur this month when we pray for more clergy and it would be so good to have more. It is difficult in rural Benefices like ours with five Parishes and seven churches for a priest to give the care and attention to each parish that he might have done when each parish had its own priest.

We now look forward to welcoming our new Vicar to the Benefice. He is the Revd Paul Roberts and his wife is Rosie. They have two small boys, Jack who is 3 and Ben who is nearly 1. At the moment Paul is in the Lugwardine and Bartestree Group of Parishes.

They will move into the Vicarage in June, by which time we hope the garden will be tidied up. His Licensing Service will be on Monday, 2nd July in St Michael & All Angels Church in Bodenham at 7.30pm, followed by refreshments in St Michael’s School. Although it is in our Church it is a Service for the whole benefice and the other parishes will take part in the Service and help with the refreshments.

This will be our last Churchwardens’ Letter and we should like to thank all the retired clergy who have so kindly helped us out in the interregnum, in particular Prebendary David Roberts, the Revd Alan Seabrook and The Revd Alison Leigh and the parishioners for all their help and support.
