Snippets from the PCC meeting – 4th June 2019
Among the items discussed at the June meeting of the PCC were:
Patshull and Burnhill Green.
The service at St Mary’s, Patshull on Rogation Sunday was well attended and the collection at that service was sent to the Churches Conservation Trust, which is responsible for the upkeep of that church as well as more than 350 redundant others. We hope to return to Burnhill Green in September to celebrate Harvest at the Dartmouth Arms. Look out for details in due course.
We expect the approved accounts to be received from the independent examiner soon. The annual report and accounts will then be made available in church and on the website and there will be a (hopefully) brief meeting after the morning service on July 14 when they can be discussed and formally received.
Thy Kingdom Come.
The period between Ascension Day and Pentecost is a particular period of prayer, instigated in 2016 at the invitation of the archbishops of Canterbury and York.
We did not arrange anything special this year, although we have done in the past. By this time next year, however, the Lady Chapel should have been established as a prayer corner and we will be able to set up prayer stations for Thy Kingdom Come.
Since the meeting the work on the clock has been completed and it is now working again.
Prayers in the cathedral.
Maureen received a card from the Dean of Lichfield to say that they have been praying for our parish at the Cathedral. This is part of a regular cycle of prayer for all parishes in the diocese.
Maureen said that her trip to Russia was amazing; she has a wealth of photos which she hopes to make available in church one evening for anyone who wishes to come and see them .
