EXCITING NEWS FROM ST MARY’S CHURCH
Over the past few months, our children's services and work with the school has grown. One of the things we have been talking about and praying for is someone to come and help build up this work in the life of St Mary's and the village. I am pleased to say the Mission Committee from the diocese looked favourably at our application and presentation and have offered a grant over three years to help us fulfil the post. We will be meeting with Ali Campbell, the Diocesan Consultant to put together an advert for the post. The hope is we would have someone for the New Year. This is a crucial role and an exciting one. So do pray for the coming weeks that God would lead us to someone who has a heart for the mission of the church. As our mission statement says “Our Vision is to build a dynamic, vibrant church sharing Christ's love with people of all ages in our 21st Century rural community.”
There will be more information about services coming out in the next few weeks
