Second Week of Lent

The Zoom Service of the Word last Sunday morning, was once more well attended with 28 connections and 40 people taking part in our on-line service led by Ordinand Paulet Brown-Wilsher. It was announced after the service by Sutton Church Warden Darren Brooker, that the re-opening of all the Benefice Churches could happen in the near future if the current restrictions imposed by the Government and the Diocese are lifted. At the time of writing, announcements were expected soon as it would appear that following the mass vaccination programme, infections have dropped dramatically, leading the way to a return to normal worship in our churches.

A new programme has been planned ready for the arrival of the Rev Alex Wheatley with his agreement, to allow him to “pick up the reins” smoothly once he has been Licensed allowing him to become our new Rector. It is hoped that everything will be in place by the last week in March allowing the Rev Alex to conduct all the Easter services in the Benefice. Attached to the next Sunday Link, due out on February 24th, will be the proposed Service Schedule for March and April. This is only a draft document and could change, but if it does, we can quickly let everyone know.

Nick Wilson, our Church Organist, makes his next appearance on BigglesFM on Friday, February 26th with his Thought for the Day. He will be back for the next one on March 12th at 8.15am as usual, on 104.8Mhz on your radio, don’t forget to join him! There’s always much banter with DJ Alan Waring at the end of Nick’s Thoughts, well worth listening to!


Rosemary Kimber had mentioned at the Ash Wednesday service last week that rather than give up something for Lent we should count our blessings and every dinner time put a little something in a jam jar or some other receptacle, and during Holy Week we take it to church and the monies collected would be sent either to a homeless charity or a food bank - whatever the PCC decides.

This sounds like a great idea so we hope many can make a contribution towards the final total in Holy Week. For further information, please contact Rosemary on 261206.

Next Sunday’s 10.30am Benefice Service, 28th February, Lent 2, will be Service of the Word by Zoom and will be led by the Rev Gillian Orpin. Details of how to join any service can be found on our website or our Facebook page.
