There’s some really exciting news to share for the Coastal Mission Community of Seaton and Beer. Simon Hitchcock, our Curate, has now finished his training period. Having met the exhaustive list of training requirements to Bishop Roberts satisfaction, Simon has now completed his title post. Great work Simon, and thanks to Julia for all the support given.
The just-as-good-news is that Simon will remain working with us as Associate Priest. That means that we will continue to receive the benefit of his ministry across the Mission Community. Please continue to hold Simon, and his family, in your prayers.
Here’s a short video I recorded to develop a little thought I had whilst recording this Sunday’s service in St Gregory’s church building. How do you react to it? What would you challenge, and what would you add?
This week our two church buildings are reopening for limited hours for private prayer. We cannot currently lead public prayers or offer simple services, other than funerals. We hope there will be a further easing of restrictions nest month.
St Gregory’s, Seaton – Monday to Friday & Sunday – 10.00am to 12.00noon
St Michael’s, Beer – Wednesday & Sunday – 10.00am to 12.00noon
The service for this coming Sunday was shot in St Gregory’s, Seaton, and is a return to the regular format after a couple of “specials”; Rogation and Ascension. Next Sunday we reach Pentecost, the birthday of the Church.
Ascension Day is probably the smallest big occasion in the Church’s year. It’s one that easily slips by without being noticed, or missed. I think that’s a pity. So, here’s a short service for Thursday.
