    Sunday 7th July …

    is the 6th Sunday after Trinity. Sung Mass with Sunday School begins at 10.30am.

    There’s been some wonderful things happening in church recently, with concerts, school events, and heritage events with the deaf community and the school, and of course our Blessing of the War Memorial last Sunday. It’s been great to see so many people visiting the church, many of them for the first time. And it’s exciting to see more events being planned, so do keep an eye on the notices over the coming weeks!

    And with so much going on, it’s been good to see so many people volunteering to help out, especially last Sunday where a team of people helped serve and tidy up. I am ever so grateful to everyone for their help, as I am to God for you all.

    God bless you this coming week.

    Fr Lincoln

    FRIDAY 5 JULY: BAPTISM OF YI-HSIN

    We are delighted Yi-Hsin will be baptised this Friday. Her baptism takes place outside of Mass, at 3pm, so that family and friends can be there. Please pray for Yi-Hsin, her parents Cheuk and Tzu-Hsuan, her sister Yi-Ning, and her godparents over the coming days - and beyond. And let us rejoice that the Lord is again adding to his number.

    WEDNESDAY 10 JULY: FREE LUNCHTIME CONCERT

    Finnish baritone Aleksi Koponen is again joined by Jocelyn Freeman on the piano for the second of their series of free concerts. This time they will perform Franz Schubert's Schwanengesang. It starts at 1pm. Feel free to pop in and enjoy a section of the performance or come along and enjoy the whole thing! 1pm - 2.15pm. Free entry. And do tell your neighbours, colleagues, and friends.

    The next meeting of the PCC is on Tuesday 16 July at the vicarage. Papers will be circulated to Trustees in advance.

    CONFIRMATION SERVICE: THANK YOU!

    We had a wonderful Mass in school this morning, with Bishop Sarah confirming Janice and Rose in a very special service. I am ever so grateful to everyone at Hampden Gurney who helped make it such a beautiful service, with singing, orchestral music, and even newly painted walls in the chapel! So much hard work behind the scenes to get everything ready. Thank you everyone who helped! And do please continue to pray for Janice and Rose as they begin the next chapter in their adventure with God.
