Both Bill Watson and Roger Abrams have decided to retire at the end of August. Both are men of deep faith and have made this decision after much prayer. We thank them both for their ministry across our churches and in many other places.

 I am pleased to say that they will both continue to worship with us and help out with services in an emergency.

 In recognition of their ministry, there will be a Team Eucharist on Sunday September 4th at St Cuthbert’s Church at 10.30am where Bill and Roger will take the service.

 At the end of the service, Rebecca will offer a prayer of blessing for Bill and Olwyn and for Roger and Pam.

 Please pray for them during this time of transition.

Reverend Rebecca Clarke
