Ruth Holbrook and St Edmund’s…….

We all know Ruth, the Lay Reader who has been taking some of our services for several years. She is to join us on a more formal basis, to assist with the management and organising of our services. I should point out that this does not mean that our services will change. They will remain as they are .

What it does mean is that this particular burden will be lifted from the shoulders of the Revd Howard. He will continue taking the services that he has done since joining us.   It simply means that his administrative  load will be  lighter.

To formalise Ruth’s new role, we are holding a special service to which you are cordially invited. The service will be led by the Archdeacon of Nottingham, the Venerable Sarah Clark and the Revd Mark Rodel, to commission Ruth as the Co-ordinating Minister for the United Benefice of All Hallows, Lady Bay and St. Edmund’s, Holme Pierrepont. Her main responsibility will be St. Edmund’s.

We are inviting   the Area Dean and others to join us in this celebration, which will take place on 30th January at 7.00 pm. We will be serving coffee and biscuits after the service.

Please come and join us, so that we can give Ruth a proper welcome to St Edmund’s. If you would like to attend, but  need a lift, please let me know, on 0115 933 2805.

We look forward to welcoming you on the 30th.
