Feb 2016 News & Notes

A warm welcome to Philip Elliott
In our journeys of faith, we are in for a lot of fun. The two mix well as our new Team Vicar will demonstrate. Philip will be licensed by Bishop Nicholas Holtam 7.00pm at St Nicholas and St Laurence School on Monday 1 February. He will be installed by Archdeacon Paul Taylor 10.30am at St Laurence, Upwey on Sunday 7 February. Do come and welcome him into our communities.

St Laurence weekday Holy Communion

Richard was unable to attend ministers' breakfasts in the town, or arrive at clergy chapters on time because of the Tuesday morning Holy Communion at St Laurence. As of this month we move to Wednesday mornings, and I know Philip really appreciates this move.

Bosworth Carols
We enjoyed a traditional carol service with members, visitors, and staff reading lessons. Staff bravely stood in as the three wise men.

Three generations took part in Messy Church
An imaginative use of shoe boxes occupied all ages in the production of nativity scenes, and preparation for the Crib Service.

Thanks to all those who have  helped us celebrate Christmas in meaningful ways. Don't forget to send pictures, with captions, to the Register.
