Pastoral Visitation -
Pastoral visitation is an important part of any church's ministry and
can't just be done by one person. With that in mind, we would like
to set up official visitation teams who work in collaboration with the
clergy. In this day of political correctness and GDPR, there are
certain measures that we need to follow when visiting. With that in
mind we have asked Bob Banton from the Diocese to run a 4 week course (one
evening a week) on pastoral visitation after Easter. Would you be
interested in being part of the pastoral visitation team? If so, can
you give your name to Andrew or Alan asap. Once we have numbers, we
can let Bob know, and sort out a start date. Thank you.
Home Communion - Home Communion will be taken out on the 2nd April. If you know of anyone who would like to have Communion at home please see or contact Norma in church
Parish Office - Bookings for baptisms and weddings will take place on Thursday 4th April from 7-8pm in church. Please contact Alan Finch on 928 3919 for more information.
Foodbank Team - We are on duty next at St Leonard's on 5th April. With grateful thanks to everyone who helps us so much.
Articles needed for the magazine - We really do need articles for our magazine. Maybe you have memories to share about St Philips or Litherland; a poem or story that has made you smile, or a photograph of past times. Hope to hear from you - Pauline.
