Pastoral News from Chris Fletcher



      First of all may I wish everyone ’a Happy New Year.’   I do hope you all had a good Christmas and New Year.

For some it has not been the best of starts with the flu virus taking hold.   I know some members were hospitalised over this Christmas and others were bedridden.   By the time you get this copy of ‘Connections’ I do hope that all are on the mend.   For some though their conditions are ongoing with many challenges.   For you, we have special prayers.

   Our Christmas celebrations were simply wonderful - decorations, school visits, school services and many more.

Thanks to all who helped.   It was sad that the Leamore  Garden Event had to be cancelled due to SNOW after all the hard work and preparation.

   We say ‘goodbye’ to Rita James who was a member for many years along with her husband Colin.   Rita passed away on the 14th December now to be reunited with Colin.

To anyone who celebrated a birthday or an anniversary in December or January we say ‘Congratulations.’  Should anyone who would like to have an acknowledgment of a special event or birthday in ‘Connections’please let me know of dates in good time.

May I remind Pastoral Visitors of a training meeting at 1-30pm on Monday 5th February 2018’  

May God be with you all.      Chrissie
