Update 30 August

Good afternoon all,

This greeted me as I walked across the carpark to church early Sunday morning:  a lovely rainbow, shining on St Nic’s! Of course it rained soon after, but it’s always a joy to see a rainbow:

This morning was Toddler Jam, so I have the songs running through my head: ‘We’re the toddler jammers….’  ‘The wheels on the bus go round and round’…… Those earworms will hang around all day! It is lovely to see the little ones having such a good time and being so engaged with the music and movement. As an extra bonus some of us had a cuddle with Laura’s baby (granddaughter of Helen & Peter Krynen) showing that we Nannas haven’t forgotten 😊

Next term Toddler Jam will move to Thursdays so we will need some volunteers please- not everyone who currently helps out is available on Thursdays. If you’d like to come to set out morning tea and enjoy the fun please let us know.

Don’t forget that on Saturday at 9:30am Darren is coming to talk to us about the work of ‘Destiny Rescue’ and everyone is invited.

We have been unable to find a Cleaner to employ so far: we’ve had a couple that looked promising but didn’t eventuate. Please pass the word around if you can- you might have a neighbour or a friend who would like a couple of hours of work. In the meantime I’m afraid our rostered volunteer cleaners need to continue.

Here is the Collect Prayer of the Week following the Twelfth Sunday After Pentecost:

Lord of all power and might,

the author and giver of all good things:

graft in our hearts the love of your name,

increase in us true religion, nourish us with all goodness,

and of your great mercy keep us in the same;

through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

God bless,


       The Reverend Lorna A M Green
