This year we are going to hold another Encounter renewal day, on Saturday 23rd June. Encounter gives us the chance as a church to set aside a day to retreat, to learn and to pray. The theme this year will focus around getting ready for the arrival of our new Vicar; how as individuals and as a church can we prepare well for the new season that will begin when our new Vicar arrives.
The Churchwardens and I have invited Matthew Porter (Vicar of The Belfrey, York), to lead us through the day, which he has generously agreed to. We look forward to hearing how Matthew will speak into our church at this very particular time.
This is a great opportunity for us to gather as a whole church from across our 5 services, to seek God together as a family. Particular consideration will be given to our times of sung worship to ensure they are as inclusive as possible for all the church. We are looking into the best way to provide a programme for children alongside the main sessions. The day is likely to run from 10-4pm,
Please put the date in your diary, because we would love to have as many people as possible there, from right across the whole church family. Full details about the day and how to sign up will be available nearer the time.
