CHURCH LINK FOR JANUARY 2017
Wow - that was a busy Christmas...but a really good one! I've never had
responsibility for five churches or worked with three church schools before,
but the overall effect was not just busy, but really enjoyable.
It has been special to be part of so many events in so many contexts.
But now we are hitting the New Year, and with every new beginning, lots of
opportunities and new things are opening up for us. At Stilton we will be
having a bit of a re-jig of our services to enable us to start a monthly Morning
Praise service. At Elton we are launching our Pub Church on
15th January at 8pm at the Black Horse, and at Haddon Church we are
bringing back our Plough Sunday service at 6pm on 5th February.
At Morborne, we are gearing up for Lambing Sunday on 12th March
and, at Folksworth, we also have Morning Praise each month as a
new style of service.
Something I love about being part of The Church of England, is that it has, at its
core, a desire to be the church for everyone. That's why we have churches in all
our communities, and ministers who live with the communities they serve.
We have warm relationships with the schools, and there is an open
invitation to all who wish to be married or have their children
christened or need a place to show their respect to loved ones at funerals.
All this amongst many other things. Our churches are available to the whole community and we trust, as the New Year begins, there will be a place for everyone to find a home with us.
Happy New Year
