Vicar's News - 6 June 2021

Updated: Sep 7, 2021

Holy Family by Mary Charles McGough

Second Sunday after Pentecost

This Sunday is the second Sunday after Pentecost. As a preaching prophet and a worker of miracles, Jesus’ own immediate family thinks that he is mad, and the scribes from Jerusalem say that he has the Beelzebul ''king of the flies'' (another name for Satan) and not the Holy Spirit. Jesus is going to build a believers' family - whoever wants to follow him can come and become a member of the His family, a spiritual family. Watch the recorded service for the second Sunday after Pentecost here.

I hope everyone is well and coping with the restrictions. Please stay in touch with people you know in God’s family, and support one another. Continue to pray for those around the world impacted by Covid-19 and for an end to the pandemic.

Fr Ian will return from his holiday during the coming week. Hopefully, we will be able to worship together again on Saturday 12/Sunday 13 June.

Vale Vivien Feltham

With 10 family members, an intimate service of thanksgiving for the life of Vivien was held in the Lady Chapel last Wednesday at 10:30 am. Vivien was 96 and had a long association with St Andrew’s, volunteering with flower arranging and in the Op Shop. Please continue to pray for her daughter Kim, son Mark, and their families.



Parishioner Mitchell Toy's new children’s book The Bounty of Bootless Ben was published on 29 May and will be available in bookshops soon. The story invites children to follow a treasure trail, collect hidden keys and unlock wonders. Young readers will learn how family and friendship are more precious than gold.
