Update 8 November

Good morning, friends,

This morning I’m off to Opal Carine Aged Care, where hopefully I will see Mary Bannister and Rose (Cindy’s mum). It is a pleasure to bring worship to residents in aged care; and it is so important that we don’t forget those who have given so much to the church in their younger years.

Tomorrow is our usual 9:15am Eucharist, and on Thursday Toddler Jam is in the hall. Please consider whether you can help out occasionally; this is a lovely outreach to the community and a joy to be a part of, but people are needed to make it happen.

I have attached a notice about the Advent Study we’re offering; you can choose to attend on Wednesday mornings or evenings, or use the resource at home. There is a sign-up sheet in church or you can just let me know if you’d like to come.

Attached is a flyer for our Christmas services so you can put them in your diary or tell your friends. My final service at St Nic’s will be at 9:30am on Sunday January 1st– a combined service to be followed by morning tea. If you are not away on holiday, tired and / or hungover from New Year’s Eve (!) Allan & I would love to see you.

We need to get planning for our St Nic’s Day Celebration; I have attached the flyer. I know some people have a long-standing booking to attend on that night so we would like to know if moving it to Sunday evening (4th December) would suit more people. PLEASE let me know your thoughts as soon as you can; it would be awful to have to cancel because of lack of interest.

On Thursday 17th November we have the opportunity to hear the whole of St Luke’s Gospel read aloud. This will be an experience not to be missed; if you would like to read a section on the night, there is a sign-up sheet or you can reply to this email.

Here is the Collect Prayer for this week:

Blessed Lord,

you have caused all holy Scriptures to be written for our learning:

grant that we may so hear them, read, mark, learn and inwardly digest them,

that, by patience and the comfort of your holy word,

we may embrace and ever hold fast the blessed hope of everlasting life,

which you have given us in our Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen.

God bless,


The Reverend Lorna A M Green
