PRAYER FOCUS

Our new PCC; our applications for grant money for hall repairs; preparations for the Deeping St James Village Fete (incorporating the Rose and Sweet Pea Show); everyone who has worked so hard to create and administer the Deepings Literary festival, and all who are attending it this weekend; all standing for election either in central government or in local elections.

 

APCM

Thank you to those who attended the APCM, when Caroline Herron and Nick Drewett were elected for a further term as church wardens. The new PCC now consists of:  Our two wardens; Vicki Billyard; Kate Drewett; Barry Fisher; Niccy Fisher; John Marsh; Simon Marshall; Liz Spratley; Jane Thompson; Victoria Worthington. There are thus 3 remaining vacancies.

 

We have two Deanery Synod representatives (Niccy Fisher and Simon Marshall) and two Churches Together representatives (Kate Drewett and Jan Fisk). Niccy Fisher remains as Diocesan Synod representative. There is thus one remaining vacancy for Deanery Synod and one for Churches Together.

 

PASSION PLAY CD

The Passion Play CD has now sold out, but you are welcome to borrow a copy from Rev Sue if you have missed out!

 

 

CHURCHES TOGETHER PRAYERS FOR MISSION

The next prayer session will take place on Thursday 11th May at 7.30pm at St Guthlac’s, Market Deeping. Everyone very welcome.

 

THY KINGDOM COME

Our two archbishops have convened this prayer initiative to coincide with Pentecost, and it is planned to have a 24-7 prayer room operating during that time. Watch this space for further details. If you have never experienced a prayer room, this is something not to be missed!
