INVITATION TO COMMISSIONING OF NEW RURAL DEAN
Revd. Martin Booth is to be the new Rural Dean of Sevenoaks. There will be a Commissioning Service on Thursday, 6 October 2016 at 7:30pm, at St. Mary's Church, Riverhead with Dunton Green. The Service will be led by the Ven. Clive Mansell, Archdeacon of Tonbridge. Everyone is welcome to attend, and there will be refreshments afterwards. The Invitation also provides details of robing arrangements for Clergy and Lay Ministers, and Choir.
Do have a read of the latest 'Vicar's Thoughts', dated 17 September 2016, about 'The Dishonest Steward' and the message the parable might have for us today- accessed from the main menu on the left-hand side of this front page.
FRIENDS OF ST. MARY'S CHURCH, RIVERHEAD
We would like to start up a 'Friends of St Mary's' group. This would be focused on the church in its role as a community resource, both in Riverhead and Dunton Green. We would look for the group to encourage membership and growth. The group would be seeking to put on concerts, events and other special occasions that celebrate St Mary's historical and heritage value as the centre of community life since it was built in 1831. If you are interested, or know anyone in Riverhead and Dunton Green who would enjoy being part of this, please contact The Vicar and Wardens at or call and leave a message with contact details.
The Vicar will be holding children's and separate adults' confirmation classes spread over four Sunday afternoons starting from 30th October 2016. These will lead up to a confirmation service somewhere in the Shoreham Deanery on Thursday, 24th November 2016 (evening); details to follow. If you are interested in attending the classes please email or telephone Revd Martin. Please note: there is no commitment to actually going on to be confirmed, so if you are interested just in meeting up and hearing a little bit more about Christianity and what Christians believe then this could be just the thing for you! Revd Martin
