Special Religious Education Enrolment in Public Schools

Parents who support their child receiving a period of Christian teaching in their public school each week are encouraged to send a note to the school with their child at the start of the school 2016 year. In the past children were automatically placed in “Scripture” unless parents had informed the school that they did not wish this. In future the child will not/may not be so enrolled unless the parent has requested this. Please inform other parents of this change so that they can advise their child’s school.

More Scripture teachers are needed to allow all the Primary schools to offer children a half hour lesson each week. If you feel you could help with this please talk to Val Axtens, Doug Ridley or one of our Ministers. It is not as scary as it might seem and it is wonderfully rewarding.

Everlasting God,

whose will is to restore all things in your well-beloved Son,

our Lord and King:

grant that the people of earth,

now divided and enslaved by sin,

may be freed and brought together under his gentle

and loving rule;

who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and for ever.



Please Pray for:

Our wardens and members of our Parish Council as we seek to serve our congregations, whilst uniting in the mission to reach out to our

community with the hope of Jesus.

All who have suffered under the recent threats of terrorism.
