Newsletter 311221

Whilst our celebrations might be a bit more muted this year (less large gatherings, anyway) new year is a great time to take stock of the year that's gone and look ahead to what's coming up. It's also still Christmas season, which lasts a while longer than Just December 25th - after all, the 3 Kings (aka wise people/ magi/ star watchers) haven't made it yet! We'll be celebrating their arrival at the crib of the new-born King - the Epiphany - on Sunday. It will be good to follow the starwatchers' example of seeking the light of Christ in all we do, as we look forward to the new year. And whilst we're aware that there's still a pandemic on, and we'll continue to risk assess our activities, we do have some exciting plans for 2022 at St Francis Church! Here's a look ahead:

Children and Families Worker

We are thrilled to be welcoming more children and families on Sundays, to cafe and to Messy Church and we're so grateful to all those who enable that. But we do need some extra help - and this is something that Council have identified as urgent and important. Next Sunday we'll be giving you lots more information about what we're planning and how you can help.

Social events

- St Francis Church has hospitality in it's blood! (That's why I applied for the job). We're making plans for 2022 - and the first is for Jan 22nd - more info on p2.

The Bible Course

Ever wondered how to read it, what the Old Testament has to do with today or whether it's even true? Starting just before Lent, everyone's invited to join in! More details to follow.

Services and service patterns

Covid changed how we do things, and that's not been a bad thing. We're a work in progress and always will be! Look out for All Age services, communion during the week, informal evening worship...
