Here is the eighteenth of our Church Wardens’ messages to the Parish:
Again, it was great to see a number of you on this week’s Wednesday Wardens’ ZOOM meeting and at our Ash Wednesday Eucharist also streamed on ZOOM. The Ash Wednesday service was recorded and is also online on our Facebook pages. Please forgive any errors as it was recorded live.
This Sunday (21 February), we will again be streaming our 10.00am Eucharist, presided over by Father John on ZOOM. It may also be followed on our Facebook pages, either live or as a recording (that is, if the “host” does not get himself too mixed up and presses the wrong buttons). This Sunday we are also hoping to stream a specially-prepared sermon that Bishop Martin has written for churches in the diocese that are in a Vacancy.
Here is the usual ZOOM link that you can click on (please use it for our streamed services and online “get togethers”) when we hope you can join us:
Church ZOOM Link – Sunday 10.00am Eucharist, Wednesday 9.30am Eucharist and weekly Wednesday 10.15am online “get together”.

Karen, our Treasurer, has asked us to pass on her thanks to all of you who have posted their weekly church contributions into the Church Office. Your visit there could be combined with an exercise walk around the church grounds that are becoming very Spring-like. Many of the shrubs are starting to bud as the weather improves after last week’s cold snap. Our thanks go to all those who make sure our churchyard and the Rectory Garden are kept tidy. We understand that the mini daffodils are ready to bloom – a sure sign of better times ahead!
The Wardens can always be contacted via email email@example.com for matters such as wedding and baptism enquiry dates etc. Although the church is not open for these celebrations at present, they are recorded in our Church Diary so we do not forget them.
Finally, do keep in your prayers the recently departed: John Crane, Michael Chester, Father Iain Young SSC, and Shirley Dorman (whose funeral was held this Thursday in the Church of the Presentation). (RIP)
Again, a quick reminder that you can also keep up with church news and other information that is posted on our website: www.stwilfridshaywardsheath.org.uk.
God Bless – Arthur and Derek
