Churchwarden Brenda’s Notes for June.

Summer must be here as the heating in church has been turned off!

Very little has happened in church this month.   Herbert and I as Church Wardens have attended the 2017 Visitation and Admission of Churchwardens which took place at Southwell Minster.   We have to attend this to continue in our roles for caring for the congregation and the church’s building, fixtures and fittings.   We do this of course with the much relied on and appreciated help from all the PCC members and congregation.

As summer arrives, so does the increased activity at the National Water Sports Centre which can have adverse effect on our access to church, especially for the morning service, both from the direction of Radcliffe-on-Trent and Regatta Way/Lady Bay area.   On 21st May it was the turn of the Outlaw Triathlon and on 28th May the Nottingham 10k run. Although we cannot change the chosen routes, if we are aware of these activities then we can warn you of possible delays.   So future dates that I am aware of so far are

23 June – Outlaw Triathlon

25 July – Nottingham Bike Ride

June also sees the first of the young couples who have been attending church to gain their ‘qualifying connection’, celebrating their wedding.   We hope that the day is perfect for them in every way.

Please note the earlier time of our Morning Prayer Service with Baptism on 11th June.   This is so that we can open the church for possible wedding couples who are visiting the Wedding Fayre at Holme Pierrepont Hall.

Please remember in your prayers Richard and Rae Cumberland, Robin and Elizabeth Brackenbury, Enid Thraves and also Jean Wightman who will hopefully have had a successful operation and be making a good recovery.
