Good morning and a very warm welcome to all this Queens Birthday weekend.

Firstly a big thank you to all that helped with the Pentecost service last weekend, from those that made delicious soups, help set up, vestry members for serving and cleaning up, the City of Light band, the people that help run the crèche, a big thank you, it was a real team effort.

And secondly thank you to the people that have given prizes for the Quiz night. Now is the time to register your team, we have a limited number of tables so don’t delay. There are some great prizes to be won and a great night of fun to be had, so get your tables now.

Last week I mentioned the church finances. To follow up… We are reviewing the church budget and updating it to more accurately reflect our reduced spending targets.

There are some costs that have been carried over from last year that we will need to address in the future. The finance team have met with the Diocese and talked through the issues with them.

We are keep a tight reign on discretional spending and monitoring all expenses..

The finance team will present a more detailed report over the next couple of weeks, but I would ask all members of the church to start to pray for the church finances, that we will be able to honour all our commitments by the end of the year.

Remember the church weekly prayer meeting on Tuesday morning starting from 7.00am.

This week we move into the second half of our series entitled “Resurrection Living”. We have looked at aspects of how we could live in the Spirit using the book of 1 Peter as the point of reference. So far we have looked at Peter’s journey through life, we examined honour and how to put this into practice, the principles of family life and marriage and last week we explored the topic of everyday living.

Over the next three weeks we will cover suffering, our gifts and community.

Hope you have a great week.

Yours in Christ

Philip
