July 2019 News & Notes

Congratulations to our new LPAs, or Lay Pastoral Assistants to give them their full title. Judy, Theresa, Gaynam, and Pat were commissioned by Bishop Karen Gorham at St Aldhelm's Church. Here Judy is surrounded by supporters from St Nicholas, Broadwey.

Archdeacon Antony is paying us another visit to preach at St Osmund, Osmington at Hymns and Pimms 6.30pm on 14 July. All welcome to join in the festive atmosphere, and hear a cracking sermon.

We enjoy fabulous guests at our weddings across the Ridgeway Team. Here St Andrew's Church path is lined ready to greet newlyweds James and Rachel Rycroft.

Nicholas Papadopulos is Dean of Salisbury, and preached at the installation of the new Canon Precentor [ic worship] at the Cathedral. He suggested that every vestry should have a noticed pinned up to remind mortals that the Immortal God is our focus. Canon Tim took him at his word, and found it a liberation!

Pretty as a Picture is a flower festival planned for St Andrew in the first weekend of July. The festival will give away any donations received over the weekend, and will conclude with a Songs of Praise.
