Announcements and Updates

WELCOME PROJECT ‘SHOW AND TELL’ - AND EAT CAKE

You will have heard of the plans to undertake a major refurbishment of our Hall.  The Project Steering Group have been collecting ideas from users and the wider community,

and it is now time to share these with you and gather further ideas and comments from our own congregation. We have arranged two opportunities to review our plans and ideas after Sunday morning service on Sunday 8th August and Sunday 22nd August.  We will meet in the hall for tea and coffee and have information available on the project so far.  We have also arranged an open afternoon on Saturday 11th September from 2PM until 5PM.  Your input and feedback will be vital to the project. Tea/coffee will be provided, and so will cakes if you bake them (individual small cakes rather than large ones which need cutting please).  Come and share and have your say.

 

DO YOU KNOW OF A HOUSE AVAILABLE TO LET?

Family of four plus one furry friend urgently seek a property for long-term tenancy in Bristol. We need 4 beds (or 3 bed with 2 rec. rooms). Any area considered, although North Bristol preferred. We are genuine, employed, come with exc. refs and can move at short notice! Thank you. Contact the Church office or call 07919400253

 

CONFIRMATION, 2021

Confirmation is a sacrament of the church, whereby God’s grace is empowered through prayer that an individual may confirm the promises made at their sacrament of Baptism from which all other sacraments flow.  Confirmation is an opportunity for the Christian to take responsibility for becoming a mature disciple of Jesus and to ask through prayer for the strength to proclaim the Christian Faith and to do God’s work in the world.

It is intended that, as we emerge from Covid-19 restrictions, we will organise a programme of preparation for the sacrament of Confirmation to be administered by the bishop at some point in the early Autumn. If you would like to receive the sacrament of Confirmation, please get in touch with Fr David.

 

HYMNS & PIMMS

On Sunday, 1st August at 4 pm, we hope to be able to hold a songs of praise service to celebrate being able to sing again and to share in some good, old-fashioned fellowship.  I invite you to nominate your favourite hymn - this can, of course be a hymn which holds a special significance for you, or perhaps a hymn sung to a favourite tune of yours.  Please write the title of your hymn along with a brief account of what makes it special for you and we will be able to compile a programme of hymns for the service.  Please, either email, or hand it to Jon Crow, our Director of Music, or to the rector or one of the Church Wardens.  The first dozen hymns to be submitted will feature in the service after which Pimms (and alternative drinks) will be available as we share some simple Covid-19 friendly refreshments.
