ANNUAL CHURCH MEETINGS - ST. IPPOLYTS

 

“The Annual Parishioners Meeting” (to elect churchwardens) and “The Annual Parochial Church Meeting of the Parish of St. Ippolyts” will be held in St. Ippolyts Church at 7.00pm. on Tuesday 9thApril.  Everyone is welcome to attend but only those on the St. Ippolyts Church Electoral Roll may vote at the second meeting.  The meeting is the Church’s AGM and there will be a review of 2018 with reports from the Churchwardens, our Treasurer, and St. Ippolyts School, as well as the appointment of officers, sidesmen and independent financial examiners.  To make the evening ‘go with a flow’ there will be wine, soft drinks and nibbles available.

We are looking for new members of our Parochial Church Council.  If you are interested in playing a key role in the future of our church please consider putting yourself forward for election, it is not a particularly onerous task!  Those wishing to be elected can put their names on the election list at the back of the church.  In addition we are still seeking a treasurer to take over from Michael.  If you feel you could spare the time to play an important role in the life of our church please consider taking on this task.

Beer and Hymns

Many thanks to those of you who joined me at The Buck’s Head last month for our first Beer and Hymns service.  What a wonderful occasion it was!

Tony, the lovely landlord, had kindly agreed to let us have the service in the pub and had set aside a room for us to use.....however, such were the numbers that we ended up filling the conservatory instead! It was wonderful to have such a crowd and, once our vocal chords had been loosened, we raised the roof with many of our favourite hymns.  It was good to worship God with people from across the benefice and particularly encouraging to see some new faces and get to know other members of our community. We ended the service with prayers and a blessing and an invitation from Tony to ‘do it every month’!!!

I’m definitely planning another Beer and Hymns service....or maybe if the weather is warm, a Pimms and Hymns service......but it won’t be until after Easter so keep your eyes peeled for the announcement and please do come and join us.

With love - Ginni
