Going deeper in to God - Transforming Communities - Making new Disciples
Welcome back to Rev Alex
Reverend Alex Wheatley
The Morning Service last Sunday, Service of the Word, a service that follows the style of Holy Communion, but without the Communion! This is a service where a fully ordained priest is not present to conduct the service, therefore Holy Communion cannot be given to the congregation. Our service on Sunday was conducted by Rdr Simon Gutteridge who ably led the service with an interesting sermon, and some reflective recorded music instead of the congregation singing, as that is still not allowed. Simon is known as a Reader, (Rdr for short), and is fully trained as a priest up to the point of full ordination, but that would require further training and commitment. The service next Sunday at 10.30am will be Holy Communion conducted by our Rector, the Rev Alex Wheatley.
Nick Wilson, St Mary’s Church Organist, will once more be the speaker on the Biggles FM Breakfast Show on Friday morning, August 6th, at 8.15am giving his fortnightly Thought for the Day. Tune in to 104.8 on the dial to Listen to Nick and hear all the latest church news, and no doubt a few more of his favourite anecdotes!
