I hope this email finds you well and enjoying our cooler weather.
Work has been continuing at both our churches, the lighting at St John’s is on target to be completed at the end of September, we are planning to have a grand unveiling with socially distanced teas on the weekend of 10/11 October. We will also be celebrating our Harvest Festival that weekend so the church will be beautifully decorated and our harvest festival service will be held on the 11th as a cafe church service at the Crown. More details are to come but please put the date in your diary.
At St Margaret’s the new boiler work has nearly been completed, so it is hoped that we will be able to open for services on 20 September. Again, please look out for updates.
For those who are still unable to join us on a Sunday I have been asked to tell you about two resources that you might be interested in. The first is a free dial in worship phone line set up by Justin Welby The Archbishop of Canterbury. Dial 800 804 8044 to be able to listen to hymns, reflections and prayers with a special greeting from The Archbishop himself. The second is the Guildford diocese Sunday sermon, this week it is Bishop Andrew preaching about Climate Sunday. The video can be found here:
This weeks photo is a picture of Four Wents Pond, my grandchildren particularly like feeding the ducks there and when walking in the early morning you more often than not see a local Heron waiting for his breakfast.
With love and prayers
