Good afternoon everyone,

Welcome to my last email for a couple of weeks. Fiona will be in charge next week and Pauline the week after. Do get in touch with them by Weds noon each week if there are things to include.

Many thanks to whoever gave the anonymous gift of Euros for our holiday. We were touched. I am back at work on Monday 24th June. Contact Michelle if you need a member of the clergy while I am away.

PRAYER DIARY:

People
Ruth and Ricky 

Stephen W

Roads

Trendlewood Way

Community
We pray for preparations for the many and various outdoor events, fetes, fairs and festivals over the next few weeks.

Mission Partners

We pray for the work of Joanna, manager at the CAP Debt Centre, and her contact with new clients.

Morning Prayer

There is no Morning Prayer at the Vicarage for the next two weeks. It will restart on Monday 24th June.

Summer at Golden Valley

We have just heard that the school will be unavailable to us over the summer holidays while important building is completed. This is also happening at St Francis School so we cannot go there either. Please pray for wisdom as we try and work out the best options. Do share any ideas you have with the Church Wardens.

Skatefest

Saturday 8th June sees the 17th Nailsea Community Skate Festival. If you are not on any rota to help please do pray for the day and simply come along to support the team and chat to people who are around.

Sunday

We return to the Pastoral Epistles and Michelle preaches on 2 Timothy 4. Sarah Bird leads.

It’s Day 7 of Thy Kingdom Come, our 11 days of prayer. Thank you to everyone who has been praying during this time and we’d love to hear about your experiences – please speak to Michelle or Fiona. Churches across Nailsea have been taking part in this global call to prayer and will meet to celebrate Pentecost together this Sunday at the Methodist Church at 6:30pm. It’s a time to celebrate the present with joy & look towards the future with hope! Please join us if you can.

Evening Service

We will be starting an experimental Sunday evening meeting on July 7th. It will be in a home, not the school, to begin with and will be monthly at first. Michelle will be hosting.

Scarecrow Trail

The popular GVSA scarecrow trail is back again. Click here to read about this opportunity, to join in (local residents) or simply take part.

Passion Play

Michelle is organising a Passion Play for Easter 2020 to be performed in the Precinct on Holy Saturday 11th April.

It is her vision and hope that Christians and unchurched people from all across the town will be involved with this community retelling of Easter in a fresh and vibrant way.

People with all types of gifts and talents are required from actors, singers, writers, directors, to stage managers, stewards, techies, administrators and even crowd gatherers.

If you are interested in being involved, even making tea and cake for rehearsal times, then please do come along to the ‘register your interest’ meeting on Sunday June 23rd, 4pm-5pm at the Methodist Church.

If you would like to be involved but honestly cannot make that meeting then let Michelle know.

Morogoro, Tanzania

Particular prayers for three things:

1. Police and auditors are investigating loss of money. Pray for wisdom and justice.

2. House needs roofing. Pray for the extra money (£4,800) still needed to do this.

3. Someone appears to have been involved in witchcraft on their property. Pray for protection.

Job Vacancies

Another rep for our liaison with Christians Together

Another Duty or Church Warden to shadow the current team and step in next year

We are still in need of someone to operate the laptop on 2nd Sundays. Could you learn to do this?

With love,

St
