Weekly SPC news for 6 February

Both the Howells and the Staceys continue to struggle with ill health in different ways, and both families want to express our huge thanks for the care and prayer we have received.

I was also hugely encouraged by the beautiful 3rd-anniversary card I received last week – what a blessing that was, and it is to minister alongside you all.

Ordinand, Kim Trinder, has started her placement with us and you can find out more about her here.

I hope you have been able to look at the Valentine campaign Helen highlighted last week. These resources are going out in our paper mailing to those who don’t have access to the internet. Below is a photo of our landing window – I am sure you can do better! Let’s spread the love this February.

Our Book Club are reading The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry by John Mark Comer and I cannot recommend this book highly enough – I found it life-changing.

This coming Sunday Steve Saville, our Ordinand, will be preaching with the Edsall family reading and Sue Jackson, Holy Trinity Churchwarden leading our intercessions. Because of all that is going on, we are sticking with Epiphany – we figured another couple of weeks of finding light in the darkness was very appropriate. Do join us here!

If you have any concerns or questions please do get in touch with Fiona or Helen in the first instance – they, alongside so many of you, are doing a splendid job of keeping everything together. I do thank God for you all.

Kim Trinder joins us on placement

My name is Kim Trinder and I live up the hill in Bisley, where I worship at All Saints’ Church. My family have lived in and around Bisley for over two hundred years and we feel firmly rooted there.

I am married and have two teenage children, three cats, two dogs and some chickens. (I was brought up on a farm and some part of me would still like that life!) I am a primary teacher, although I have stopped working to focus on my training as an Ordained Minister.

The plan is for me to remain at Bisley as a self-supporting part-time Minister. I am therefore really keen to immerse myself as much as possible in your worshipping community, to get a feel of a different church family, in another locality.  I am really grateful to have this opportunity; I should love to think I will get to know lots of new people but realise there will be limitations with the restrictions COVID-19 places upon us at this time.
