Going deeper in to God - Transforming Communities - Making new Disciples
Trinity is Here and the next Parish Charity Lunch is next week!
What a difference between this week in our church, to last weekend’s very busy weekend. Gone were all the trappings of the Platinum Jubilee with all the brilliant flower arrangements from the many groups, clubs and even many of the local shops and businesses. The church has gone from being full of colour to back to it’s normal church background, in itself, not unattractive and being typical of many Parish Churches around the country. The service of Holy Communion on Sunday was conducted by the Rev Gillian Orpin standing in for our Rector. The Rev Gillian spoke further about Pentecost and also how different faiths regard their God at the head of their Faith, and she carefully analysed the differences between them, a very interesting topic. Next Sunday the morning service of Holy Communion will be conducted by another one of our retired priest friends, the Rev Ray Porter.
Our church groups, First Steps and Craft and Chatter, returned to their usual routines last Friday, following the Jubilee weekend break. Full details of these groups and information on how to join, can be found in last week’s edition of the Sunday Link. Anyone wishing to subscribe to the free weekly newsletter, the Sunday Link, the joining information can be found on our website, www.pottonparishchurch.org.uk
