Grace and peace to you from God our Father and His Son Jesus Christ.
The Elective Assembly has been suspended until physical meetings are possible, though some other options are under consideration. Please continue to pray that a way forward will be found.
Vestries have been suspended until physical meetings can be held, but we have been given the latitude to co-opt members to fill vacancies. Please submit your nominations to the office, vacancies will be filled earlier than our set Vestry dates if possible, as leadership is essential to the work of the church in these difficult times. I remind you that we are two separate Parishes administered separately although we share a common ministry.
The Finances are complete and are available on request from the office. They will be submitted to the Diocese by 15 March 2021 and ratified at the next Vestry.
I encourage you to send me a review of the last year with suggestions of how we can grow the ministry within the current situation as we will need to continue to develop ministry within the constraints of Social Distancing throughout this year. It’s your parish and your input is critical to our ministry plan.
Remember that I am available for pastoral counselling and spiritual guidance. In these challenging times, we need to be addressing our doubts and uncertainty by deepening our relationship with God. While we aim to inspire and assist you through regular messages to the whole parish, only in a one and one can your specifics be dealt with. Please feel free to Whatsapp, Facebook messenger, Telegram, email or phone me. I am here for you.
Be assured of my prayers for you.
Choose Faith not fear.
Fr. Andrew Manning
