Going deeper in to God - Transforming Communities - Making new Disciples
Pentecost and a Platinum Jubilee
As we start the week that leads us into the Queens Platinum Jubilee Celebration next weekend, various groups around the town are in the final stages of preparation and round the streets of Potton, more decorated houses are now very noticeable. As the week progresses, St Mary’s will look very colourful with Potton’s team of flower arrangers hard at work, putting in and arranging many beautiful arrangements to express their ideas of celebrating this amazing Jubilee. I think we will all look forward to seeing these displays next weekend. Also, Potton’s Art Group will be putting on a display of many of their original paintings, showing the Town and all the visitors just what talents they have between them.
The morning Holy Communion service last Sunday included the Holy Baptism of baby Phoebe Albone. The church was nearly at full capacity with many family and friends of the Albone family swelling our usual numbers and giving their support to welcome baby Phoebe as a potential new member of St Mary’s in the years to come. It was a beautiful service conducted as usual by the Rev Alex Wheatley.
The service next Sunday, June 5th, will be in the Jubilee marquee on the church field and will be a combined service for St Mary’s and the Salvation Army with the theme of Pentecost, (Whit Sunday) a church season celebrated by both churches. Please come along if you are able to do so.
The annual Mothers' Union tea party will be held on Thursday, 9th June in Kimber's barn, behind 28, King Street. It starts at 4.00pm and all are welcome. The cost is £5 and all profit goes to the Mothers' Union Summer of Hope Appeal.
After the fun of the Jubilee is over, the church groups, First Steps and Craft and Chatter will return to the church hall, at their usual times on June 10th. For more information, see next weekends “Sunday Link” newsletter, which will be published mid week. Also back on this day, we can hear our organist, Nick Wilson, giving his thought for the day on BigglesFM at 8.15am, 104.8 on the dial!
