An Urgent Priority - A Treasurer for the PCC

Our PCC urgently needs a new Treasurer. Several people are already helping or have offered to help with the Treasury function including doing the bookkeeping, banking, billing and fee administration, payroll, cheque writing and Gift Aid administration, but we still need someone willing to be Treasurer and oversee the finance operations and prepare accounts and reports for the PCC. This is a crucial role, please pray that the right person will be found. Please speak to Keith for further details.

Hurley Cream Teas are back!

Every Sunday afternoon until 16th September in the Priory Room Hurley, or on the lawn outside the church if the weather's sunny!

Please note there will be no cream teas this Sunday (15th July)

Personal Discipleship Plan

In her Diocesan role Tina has developed a 'Personal Discipleship Plan' aimed at those who feel they have gifts to offer but are not sure how best to proceed. This is aimed at anyone who senses that God is calling them and would like to have a structured conversation about it, aiming to arrive at their own personal plan identifying what the next steps might be. If you are interested, please speak to Tina or Keith

A thank you from Margaret Jackson

May I say a big "Thank You" for all the prayers, cards, gifts and visits after my recent stay in hospital.  I am most grateful. I wish to also say thanks for the many lifts to go and see Peter over the last 18 months.  It would have been difficult to see him so often without your kind help.  It has made life so much easier for me.

 Margaret
