Annual Parochial Church Meeting (APCM). We elected Ken Kirk and Tim Reed to continue for another year as churchwardens, and Marie Rayner to the vacancy on the PCC for a 3 year period. Our thanks to them, and to all church officers continuing to serve.

Mary Cooper. We will be interring Mary’s ashes in Wouldham churchyard on this Sunday 2nd May at around 11.15am after the Eucharist. May she rest in peace.

Christian Aid Week runs from 9-15 May. Although we are not putting out envelopes we encourage online donations and there will be an opportunity to give via our website and from our Church Near You page.

Ascension Day is on Thursday 13 May and we will be having a Eucharist at 7.30pm.

Future change: At present we continue to worship in church every Sunday and encourage those who can follow on zoom to do so. Unless government guidelines change, when other venues open indoors in the week beginning 17 May, we will invite everyone to attend services in person on the Sunday following which will be 23 May which is Pentecost Sunday. After this we will still continue to be on zoom as well.

Diocesan Synod: Mike has agreed to fill a clergy vacancy on Diocesan Synod.
