PALM SUNDAY PROCESSION
On a bright sunny morning, our Palm Sunday service started with a gathering and short service in the Harvester Car Park before processing through the village to Church; briefly bringing the traffic to a standstill. The main part of the service was the dramatic reading of "The Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ, According to Matthew".
DIOCESAN CONSULTATION - OUR CONVERSATION; OUR FUTURE
During the sermon on 12 March 2017 we heard how the Rochester Diocese has produced a consultation document 'Our Conversation; Our Future'. We are all being asked for our input; in particular on three questions: What may the Holy Spirit be saying to us about our area? What do we currently spend our energy and resources on? What do we need to change about who we are and what we do? Replies can be returned to a box at the back of the Church as soon as possible, or respond directly via the website: www.rochester.anglican.org/strategy/conversation by Easter 2017. The Diocese aim to discern a new diocesan strategic framework by November 2017.
