Tonight is a very special evening for our Christ Church members, friends and community. Bob Wyesome BEM, our Organist and Musical Director will be conducting for the final time before taking a step back in his wonderful career.
How moving that Bob with the New College Chorale and a small orchestra, will be providing us with special music for Passiontide. We are delighted that Bob is continuing with the Chorale, Church, and many other projects, just taking it a bit easier. All our best wishes Bob, you really are a Star that lights up all who you meet.
As for the Vicar? well it is a very busy time, readying for Easter, and undertaking the ministry of a Parish. We have had a number of Baptisms, Funerals, and this year will be delighted to see around six couples tying the knot.
We have at the end of the month our annual church meeting, at which Church Wardens and PCC members are elected, and as a Parish we begin to map out our new five year vision for growing our Churches work and ministry. We do want to see more people joining our varied styles of services, and we do need to be growing our financial giving to meet the costs of running a large Parish. We still have a kitchen to build on Christ Church, and at Holy Trinity we have the first draft drawings for the work to rebuild the Parish Room, and refresh the Church itself.
May you be Blessed this Easter
