Etiam pulvinar consectetur dolor sed malesuada. Ut convallis euismod dolor nec pretium. Nunc ut tristique massa.

Nam sodales mi vitae dolor ullamcorper et vulputate enim accumsan. Morbi orci magna, tincidunt vitae molestie nec, molestie at mi. Nulla nulla lorem, suscipit in posuere in, interdum non magna.

Rector inducted

On Sunday 1st November 2015 it was wonderful to see so many people from across the Mission Community joining us at St Winifred’s Church to witness Hilary being formally and legally inducted as Rector by The Venerable Christopher Futcher.  CONGRATULATIONS Hilary!

All-Saints-Day-300x290      During the service the Archdeacon reminded the congregation of the significance of All Saints Day and how all of us are called to God’s ministry.  With this in mind we would like to share the poem that Hilary read at our recent PCC meeting…

A Last Beatitude

And blessed are the ones we overlook;

The faithful servers on the coffee rota,

The ones who hold no candle, bell or book

But keep the books and tally up the quota,

The gentle souls who come to ‘do the flowers’,

The quiet ones who organise the fete,

Church sitters who give up their weekday hours,

Doorkeepers who may open heaven’s gate.

God knows the depths that often go unspoken

Amongst the shy, the quiet and the kind,

Or the slow healing of a heart long broken

Placing each flower so for a year’s mind.

Invisible on earth, without a voice,

In heaven their angels glory and rejoice.
