Riding the Waves – Episode 6
Our sixth story features Vilma & Richard Collard.
All Saints Day
All Saints Sunday is coming up on November 1. This is a beautiful service when we commune with the saints who have died, now gathered around Christ’s table in the glorious cloud of witnesses.
We invite you to contribute to All Saints Sunday – to send in a photo and/or the name of loved ones – family and friends who have died in the last 12 months – or longer. They will be honoured and remembered during our All Saints service on Sunday 1 November.
See the event post for details.
Pastoral Care Review 2020 – Gathering up Stories
It is 5 years since we introduced our new model and structures for Pastoral Care in our church (Vision Document). Now we are undertaking a review to celebrate what we have achieved in that time and to consider what we have learnt and might want to do differently as a result. We will be gathering up stories from congregation members, talking to committees and groups, and producing a report for consideration.
The review will be supported and resourced by Anne Mallaby, Baptist minister and recently retired academic dean of Whitley College where she lectured in pastoral studies and ministry formation. Anne will work with a small team from within the congregation including Ian, Gwen Arnold and Jane Allardice. We look forward to hearing your stories and experiences over the next couple of months.
