Re-ordering Bulletin No. 11

Re-ordering Bulletin No. 11

Since our last update work has been concentrated on the new flagged floor and completing the lighting circuits.  
 
We are having another Open Morning on Saturday 27th April 10-12 so why not pop in and have a look for yourself.
 
The floor is nearly finished and is very handsome. Three ledger stones have been re-laid,
 two of which had been hidden under the vestry floor since Victoria was on the throne.
The Meeting Room is coming on nicely – new plaster work, oak door surrounds and lighting.
 
Kitchen cupboards are shaping up well.
 
 
And finally…let there be light!
 
Funding update 
As things stand the funding gap will not allow us to install the glass screen for the Meeting Room and
items such as chair storage, repairs to the bell tower steps and new tables.   
 
If you can help with our final push we’d be delighted to hear from you.

An Eastering God: Staying with Christ

 

Light and darkness are often used as allegories for good and evil or truth and untruth. The Unitive Way (Staying with Christ) corresponds to the sanctuary, where the Eucharist is distributed, the very high point of church life and the communion service. This is the point when we are ‘closest’ to Christ and his light.

 

The theme of these quotes and thoughts all relate to light and all the images show the strength of light (and so of Christ) apparent in or on the churches of our benefice (except one!). Can you recognise them all?

 

In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. (Matthew 5:16)
