January 2019 News & Notes

No two celebrations are the same; for every baptism family, wedding couple, or funeral gathering are unique. These are awesome times when we shout out what's important: the quality of our living, the depth of love, the miracle of life, its rich variety, and God who created and sustains the universe.
For Robert Janssen the friendship and humour he enjoyed on the golf course was an important part of his rich and varied life. His family are delighted to have the picture I took included here as a reminder of the guard of honour at his funeral.

The town was packed out on 11 November for the important commemoration of the end of the First World War, with our Churches holding amazing acts of remembrance too. St Nicholas, Broadwey included displays of local history, and ghostly outlines of those whose memory and sacrifice we treasured were placed in among the seats.
Our thanks to all our Churches for their creativity in honouring the peace, and praying that peace may be maintained. Thanks too for all the Christmas fun which can only happen because of many extras behind the scenes.
