The traditional bring and buy plantsale : Ascension day May 10:

 

this will be organized with the help of Diane.

Please keep this in mind, whilst you are admiring the new plantgrowth in your garden, and to plant up some new shoots for this sale. There will be some surprises from the botanical garden in Münster, so make sure there is plenty of space left in your garden or planter for new additions. Looking forward to admiring all the beauty of creation.

 

Bishop Robert's Easter message 2018

 

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, God was in Christ reconciling the world to himself” (2 Cor. 5:19)

It is of the nature of this ‘Easter Message’ that it is written, published and mostly read in Lent, well before Easter. So I invite us to think about the joy of the resurrection in the context of the events leading up to the crucifixion of our Lord. ............... full message

 

Diocese of Europe finances update.

 

Bishop Robert and Bishop David have made a video to detail the new financial plan to address our current operating deficit and strengthen some major functions of the diocese. In it the Bishops explain how the Diocese is running at a deficit, plus we are under-resourced and under-powered. In addition, we have quite high levels of reserves which we should be using more responsibly. In October Bishop's Council agreed a way forward that envisages a new financial future for our Diocese.

 

Food bank

Items are now being collected on a permanent basis for the food bank in Goor. There is a large plastic box in the hut where you can put items of non-perishable food. The plan is to take the box to the food bank about once a month or more frequently depending on how quickly it is filled.

FYI: Coffee is most welcome
