This week in the Benefice
The Morning Service last Sunday was the shorter format Holy Communion with the Rev Margaret Marshall from St Neots, once more standing in because of the vacancy for a new Incumbent. Things have definitely started to move on with the vacancy and the next stage is the interviews. These will take place in March and we will try to keep you up to date with the progress but there’s still quite a way to go though! The Morning Service next Sunday will be Holy Communion with the Rev Ray Porter from Gamlingay.
The World Day of Prayer will be celebrated with the Mother’s Union on Saturday March 7th. More details next week.
Our First Steps toddler and baby group will be meeting on Friday in the church hall at the usual time of 9.30am. Further details about the group from group leader Sandy on 01767 260430. Please note: First Steps no longer take a half term break and meet as usual during the school holiday. Morning Prayer services will be held next week, on Tuesday and Friday at St Mary’s, both services at 9am. These services maybe cancelled at short notice if no leader is available. Every Friday afternoon at 2.45pm, a service is held at Sutton Church for all those in the Benefice who want to end the week with quiet prayer and communion with others. All are welcome.
On Friday February 28th, we once again will welcome our church organist, Nick Wilson to the local airwaves as he is giving his “Thought for the Day” at 8.15am on BigglesFM, 104.8 on the dial. Nick has some great stories and anecdotes and is well worth listening to! He will also give details of forthcoming events if they are available. Nick now does his talk every two weeks.
The next Parish Lunch is on Friday, February 28th at 12.45pm, in St Mary’s Hall, but we have had to raise the cost this year to £8. Full details will be given next week.
