ST MICHAEL’S INTO THE FUTURE – NEXT STEPS

Your PCC understand, and share, everyone’s dismay at the need to postpone the open meeting last Sunday when we had hoped to bring you up-to-date and discuss the future. We are now planning to hold this at 11.30 on Sunday 15th March when Archdeacon Paul’s courtesies will have been observed.  We are pleased that Rev’d Jonathan Thomas (our Area Dean) will be joining us. In the meantime, here is the news we have been waiting to share with you - that the PCC has resolved to recruit a part-time priest as soon as possible to replace Rev’d Chris. It will be a temporary appointment to ensure our pastoral needs are met while giving us leadership and space to begin discussions regarding possible joint working with St Mark’s, Wyke AND keeping all our options open. This sort of interim post has the support of the Diocese. All queries to Catherine and Pauline please.

Lent Lunches: we are so grateful to church members for offering their houses on Wednesdays throughout Lent starting on 26th February and ending with a lunch in the Church Room on Saturday 4 April.  These are lovely opportunities to get together over a simple but delicious lunch of soup, bread, cheese and fruit as we prepare for Easter. Look in your diaries now and book in on the sheet by the door.  Only £5!  We will be raising money for the Bishop’s Fund.
Palm Crosses: please bring your old Palm Crosses to church next week so they can be burned ready for our Ash Wednesday service on Wednesday 26th February
