The Week from the Administrator's Desk

In Training

Hi all,

Hope you all had a good week, with all the sunshine and steam trains!

This Sunday we revert to online only, when Helen will be talking to us about a ‘Church for the Next Generation’ at the 8.00am and 10.00am services, both via Zoom or later on YouTube. The readings are in the C@H sheet attached.

As I write, the Pre-School are singing Woopah Wahey, a firm favourite with my girls when they were a little younger!

So lovely to hear children singing, makes me realise how much I have missed that.

Tonight the Year7’s from the Gap are meeting at Malshanger for the first time since lockdowns started, and the Year 8’s meet next Friday.

It is great to see the return of some semblance of normality!

If you have DIY’ed your home completely and are looking for some bits and pieces to do elsewhere, please let me know.

I have a few jobs at the Centre, and there is always the shed demolition scheduled for a week today…

Next Sunday, 20 June, Kids@Home goes Live@St. John’s field at 10 o’clock.

This will be the outdoor service for the week and is open to all ages, whether you are young or young at heart.

Bring all your family and friends, and be prepared for puppets, crafts and croissants!

Please book a space if possible, mainly for the catering and craft purposes, as there is loads of room for actual people. It will be fun to see how much the children have grown since you last saw them and to support the amazing work of the Kids@Home team over the last year and a bit.

Did you know that the services are now shown in the school’s assemblies?

Please contact the office asap!

The interviews for the Centre Admin post were held yesterday, more news to follow in due course… Thanks to all those who supported this in prayer.

Please note that change of date for the Film Group goes Large on The Greatest Showman.

It is on Tuesday 22 June not Monday 21 June as advertised last week...

I’ve yomped virtually into Scotland, saw the Flying Scotsman (in Oakley) last Sunday from a virtual Forth Bridge!

I have now passed Perth and have less the 250 miles to go, which I need to do in 5 weeks…

I am looking forward to next week as several exciting things are happening which I hope to regale (or bore) you with next Friday!

I’m off to buy a wetsuit this afternoon, which I am excited about and dreading in equal measure, because I can’t think that trying them on is going to be fun!

My clothes still fit despite lockdown, but I can’t help but think that squishing all my squishy bits into a skin tight outfit is not going to be lifetime’s highlight…

Whatever your plans are for this allegedly ‘scorchio’ weekend, drink loads of water, slap on the sunscreen and slip on a hat, so no lobsters or sunstroke in OWW please!

Take care one and all,
Love Px
