2nd June 2019

I hope you all had a good bank holiday– despite the variability in the weather. I enjoyed cycling in the sunshine on Saturday & managed to dodge some of the rain on Monday. It was good to be back on the bike.

Back to work on Tuesday with an early meeting up at the cathedral. Despite the schools being on holiday, I was having initial discussion about how we can arrange a Whit walk for the schools next year during our year of celebration, 2020 and what else the children might be able to experience whilst in the cathedral. Some exciting ideas in the making especially as it is anticipated that the new Cathedral Centre may be open by then.

I have recently started back at the West Parade after having a break from chaplaincy whilst I was not 100%. It was good to be back with some cakes & be able to talk to the various police staff committed to serving us despite the pressures & budget restraints which they have to cope with daily.

Our next event is coming up pretty soon, with people working hard behind the scene to make it happen; this is the Fashion Show on 17th June. 7pm at St Faith & St Martin CE Junior school; money raised will be towards the project for ‘audio equipment’ for the church. If everybody bought a ticket and brought one other person with them, that would really make a difference to the number of people attending. It is a fun, relaxed evening, with a glass of prosecco/ juice & a chance to get some of your summer fashions!

Have a good week, keep praying ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ for 5 people, with the Lord’s Prayer.

God bless, Revd Juli
