Thank you to all have already offered to help in a variety of ways. We still need more helpers, both on the day and in advance. See leaflet with more information. Please contact Angie Leggett (377825) with new offers of help for the fete. Remember to put the poster from the Magazine in your window.

Quiet Day - on Thursday 14 July 2022
The Rector plans to take a Quiet Day in the lovely surroundings of Up Marden Church. You are most welcome to join him, bringing sustaining things such as sketching paper, reading books or walking boots. If he knows that others are coming he will gladly ensure there is input from him by way of a couple of short services during the day within this ancient church. Starts at Up Marden, 09.45 and runs to around 15.30. Allow that there are no toilet facilities at the church itself. Bring your own lunch, and please let Andrew know of your intention to be there. There is a little benched seating, but foldable chairs or picnic rugs might also be a good idea. Car shares will be encouraged. Hopefully the weather will be suitable.

50/50 Draw The winning numbers for the month of June are as follows: 1st - No 33, 2nd - No. 21 and 3rd - No. 32.

Living in Love and Faith course
Not too late to join this for the next four Tuesdays at 7pm in the Parish Hall. Please contact the Rector directly so that we can plan for you. The course examines issues of relationship and identity, sexuality and marriage, from a variety of different insights, and within a framework of Christian understanding.

Songs for Summer – Saturday 23 July 2022 at 7.00pm – Professional soprano
Alison Pearce will give a recital, accompanied at the piano by Stewart Taylor. The programme, which will last approximately an hour, will include songs to suit all tastes from the classical and romantic repertoire. Wine and soft drinks will be available. Please publicise this event - posters and fliers available.

Return of the Chalice
The wine is again a part of our communion services since 12 June 2022. At 09.30, when we can, we will have a communion station in the north aisle, as well as centrally. If you prefer to receive the bread only, please simply return to your seat without visiting the chalice assistant. Please don’t drink from the chalice if you have a cold or fever.

Intercessions
It would be lovely to have more people to lead about speaking to God on all our behalves and is a wonderful opportunity to gather one's thoughts and to express these. If you think you might like to offer this help please contact Rector, the Churchwardens or Marjorie. We hope to host a training day in which to consider and develop this ministry for existing and future intercessors.

Sermons on the Parish Communion liturgy
Last week (3 July 2022) the Rector offered some thoughts on the opening part of the service, ‘The Gathering’. In a series on subsequent first Sundays of the month, at 09.30, he next intends on 7 August to address the second part of the rite: ‘The Ministry of the Word’. Hopefully it will continue to flesh out our understanding of this central act of worship.
