WEST MIDLANDS SAFARI PARK … AND … A TRIP TO SEE SANTA

Over the last few years, the Parish Folly Farm trip has become a staple of Parish life.  This year we went as far as offering a second trip, and enjoyed trips to Folly Farm in May and to Noah’s Ark Zoo in September. It was during the latter that someone said to me, “You will throw on a Christmas trip, won’t you?” …Well it really hadn’t crossed my mind, but as the question was raised … why not? It was on the morning of the 12th December, that we all gathered at St David’s Church. Almost sixty of More >

PCC This month we elect a new group of people to serve on our Parish Church Council (PCC). Many of you might not realise what the PCC actually does, and if you’ve ever found yourself wondering, here’s a chance to find out more. Every Anglican parish is looked after by a group of elected parishioners who help, with the incumbent (Vicar-Parish Priest) and church wardens to lead the local church in its work and mission. This group is elected each year at the Annual Vestry Meeting, [AVM) and our More >

CONFIRMATION NO LONGER REQUIRED FOR HOLY COMMUNION

Anyone who has been baptised will be able to receive Holy Communion in church, regardless of whether they have also been confirmed, under new guidance coming into effect in November. The Church in Wales is re-adopting the practice of the early church on admission to Communion – the sharing of bread and wine – in an effort to strengthen ministry to children and young people in particular. In recent times, people wishing to receive Communion have usually had to have been confirmed first – More >

Stanley Clarke

Last month, Stan Clarke, a member of St David’s congregation, exchanged time for eternity.  We pray that he may be blessed with joy and peace. Stan was such a lovely man, and held in great affection by all who knew him.  He was certainly one of the people who made me feel so welcome when I first came to this parish. Despite battling with all sorts of health conditions over the last few years, he never failed to give family, friends and visitors his lovely smile. We shall miss you Stan.  More >

Harvest Festival

By Karen Robjohn   The Harvest Festival followed the pattern of previous years, with the added bonus of being able to enjoy one of the most beautiful of days; who knows, the Indian summer may be upon us…(?) It almost belied the fact that we are now into Autumn; yes, it certainly looked and felt like a summer’s day. The Harvest Festival followed our traditional pattern of holding just one Sunday morning whole Parish service, allowing us all to come together in a common act of worship, after More >

Singing Group

The next ‘get together’ of the singing group is to be at 7pm. Monday 29th April at St David’s… Perhaps we might see you there? It’s an enjoyable hour, not too serious and most certainly no pressure, other than to enjoy singing in a group situation and occasionally ‘experiment’ too. Why not give it a go? No pressure! Come once, come occasionally, whatever; but we promise that we won’t ‘sign you up’ or expect you to join the choir on More >

HOW TO SUPPORT THE VIRTUAL FAIR

Most, but not all members of the Parish are possibly aware of the, “Virtual Fair Gift Day”; a fund-raising activity which provided important and essential funding for the parish, which actually helps us to meet our financial obligations throughout the year. Unfortunately, year on year, support decreased considerably and last year donations were down to half of that received in the initial years.  This prompted a re-appraisal of the scheme, which as yet, has not resulted in any new ideas of how More >

Mothering Sunday Posies

May I please, through the pages of the magazine, thank whoever was responsible for the flowers, that were presented to the congregation on Mothering Sunday. It is always lovely to receive flowers, particularly on a special occasion, however this year the posies were really beautiful.  Wrapped in cellophane and tied with a bow, not only protecting them from  being crushed, but made them so elegant to give and of course, to receive. So, once again, a huge thank you for your hard work … It was so More >

RECEIVING COMMUNION AND BAPTISM This month the bishops of the Church of Wales issued a joint statement on baptism and the Eucharist.  The Press Release (see pages 10/11) states that receiving communion should be open to every baptised member of the Church – even very young children.   This ruling comes into effect on Advent Sunday this year. In the period between now and Advent Sunday, we will explore how we can best implement the teaching that our Bishops have given us.   Bishop Richard of More >

FROM OUR TREASURER  –  FINANCES  SEPTEMBER

September the total income into the parish was £3,588. This included £1,658 that we gave by Gift Direct and also the older system of the weekly envelopes (September 2015: £1,869).  In addition to this, £296 was received from loose collections on Sundays (2015: £415). Surplice fees, (i.e. fees received for weddings and/or funerals) continue to be an essential source of income – £330 for the month, which is not a good place to be, as we really shouldn’t need rely on these fees simply to ‘pay our More >

Vicar’s report 2017 (for the Annual Vestry Meeting)

As we look back over the last year, I am so grateful. I am full of gratitude for all the ways that we in St David’s and St Timothy’s continue to proclaim Jesus as King, to worship, to pray and to show love to our community.   As we do this with more than our full share of burdens, troubles, ill health – mine, again included – and, again so many bereavements. We’ve had the deaths of dear, faithful and generous parishioners like Rita Somers and Raye Clutton. These were parishioners who came More >

PARISH FAMILY DAYS OUT

Over the last few years, the Parish Family Folly Farm trip has become a staple of the Parish’s life. Over the last 3 years the dates have varied having trips in August, then July, then September over respective years. During the last trip in September 2014, Jean O’Keefe and I chatted and it was agreed to attempt two trips away in 2015, which was subsequently publicised in my magazine article last October. Therefore as promised, we ran a trip on the 9th May.  Originally this was scheduled to be More >
