Celebrations - Rev David Mason
Throughout the country plans are being made to celebrate the Queen’s Colder’ Jubilee. In this magazine you will find details of the events being planned in our parish,, I note from April’s Ouse News that here will be a selection of activities occurring over the June sank Holiday weekend. Our celebrations will include a service of praise and thanksgiving to be held on the evening of Sunday 2~ of June at 0.SOpm. I am sure that we look forward to the celebrations, and that many will be working very bard to ensure that they are a success.
But there is also another celebration this year, it is 125 years ago Since our diocese was formed. Before that time our Parish was in the Diocese of Ely, which was at the time a very large diocese. On Sunday Julie the9~’ we will be hosting the Bishop of St Alban’s visit to Sharnbrook Deanery. More details below.
Special anniversaries, such as the ones that we are celebrating are times of looking back end contemplating The good and the bad things That have happened over the years. Times to give thanks for the good things, and times to acknowledge and learn from mistakes. But they are also to be times of looking forward. As part of a suggested service to celebrate the Oueen’s Jubilee tare is an act of dedication which invites us logo forward by dedicating ourselves anew to serve our local community, our nation, and the world, Certainly There is much that is in desperate need of care and service. Let us, as part of our celebrations set some time aside to think of the future, of our communities, of our nation, and of the world. Let us examine areas of need, and dedicate ourselves to the Service of working to resolve those needs in whatever way we are able.
Deanery Visit - Rev David Mason
Offers of help in providing tea and refreshments or helping on the day will be gratefully received by the Church Wardens or myself.
Au Revoir - Judith & Ron Smith
The solution is a new three bedroom apartment in
Lancaster with garage and a small garden, the latter to be put down to
paving as soon as we can organise someone to do it. We miss our many
friends in Felmersham and Radwell. but we hope that the proximity of the
Lake District will induce them to come north and pay us a visit.
