Message from Doug: 'You won't want to miss this opportunity to hear the Revd Edwin Arrison lead an Oasis Day on Tuesday, 7 September @ 10:45am via Zoom. Edwin is a South African, Anglican priest, who was ordained by Desmond Tutu and who was imprisoned on Robin Island during the Apartheid years. He now is the main Caregiver for Desmond & Leah Tutu as well as being the Development Officer for the Tutu @90 Foundation in Cape Town. Both of his 30 minute talks/meditations will be recorded if you can't spend the 4 hours (11am-3pm) on the day. But you do need to sign in with Jane Franklin to be on the receiving end of these recorded talks. Jane Franklin's email address is: janefranklinretreats@gmail.com She will then send you a 'Zoom' invitation in order to participate, or take note of your desire to hear the recorded talks. We all need a day of Quiet & Spiritual nourishment. The only cost of this day is your precious time.'

If you would like to sing with Victoria at 7pm on a Wednesday, please speak with her. On Wednesdays, please use the side, kitchen door (rather than the main entrance).

Shana would like to gather all the young people of the church on Sun 19 Sept at 12 noon, to meet up in church and think about things they might like to do together.

Thank you to the four people who have already come forward and expressed interest in the maintenance and development of the churchyard. If you'd like join them, please speak with Andrew.
