New Benefice: The consultation on the formation of the new benefice of the four parishes of St. Helen Kelloe, St. Mary Coxhoe, St. Mary Shincliffe, and St. Oswald Durham has now reached the stage of the Church Commissioners at Church House, London. Attached is the Notice of that consultation, and a Summary of the Main Provisions of the Draft Scheme.
Welcome to two ordinands from Cranmer Hall on placement in the benefice this year. Daleen Bakker is from the Netherlands and has just arrived at Durham for a three-year course in training for ministry. Gary Eaborn is from London, having been a lawyer for thirty years, he is now starting two years of ordination training. Please stay and say hallo to them over coffee at the Institute after the morning service.
Plaster repairs – A note from Gordon
Repairs to the plaster will begin with the installation of scaffolding on Wednesday 6<sup>th</sup> October. When the old plaster has been removed from the areas in question the condition of the structure underneath will be inspected to see if any further work is required. The builders are of the opinion that a combination of leaves and snow were the cause in most of the damaged areas. The new plaster will be applied in several layers and will be traditional hot lime and hair.
Diocesan Cycle of Prayer: Please find the October cycle of prayer attached. This is a useful pointer for intercessions both on Sundays and throughout the week. It is published on the diocesan web-site and here it is for your use.

I’m delighted to say that Rosalind Brown will be preaching here again on Sunday 19<sup>th</sup> December. And here is notice of her new book:
Prayers for Living: 500 Prayers for Public and Private Worship by Rosalind Brown - Sacristy Press
Rosalind says of this book:
Many of the prayers were written in response to whatever was in that day’s news or in my inbox, so they range from my response to Donald Trump sounding off recklessly to watching children splash in puddles on my lockdown walks, and from hearing the shipping forecast to getting news of a child’s serious illness.
I hope the Cathedral bookshop will have it soon and I’m told that it will be available via Amazon in the near future, if not already.
With All Good Wishes and Prayers, Peter
