Last Sunday Ron in his preaching reminded us that Christianity cannot be lived in isolation and that we are called to be a mission church not a maintenance church particularly in this time as we journey towards the appointment of a new Vicar.  A number of things coming up in the life of St Augustines which I encourage you to think about getting involved in.

This coming Friday March 31 at 6pm we have a Quiz night run by the Youth.  I hope that many of you have got a team together. Even better it is a good opportunity to invite your friends to.  It promises to be a fun night

On Saturday April 01 there is a Seminar on the subject of Euthanasia at the Transitional Cathedral. 9.30am – 2.30pm.  This issue is huge and I would encourage you to attend. You will need to Register by the 30 March.   Details are at the back of the church.

Our Annual Meeting of St Augustines parishoners will be held Saturday 8 April beginning at 10am.  Coffee will be available from 9.30am.  The Annual meeting is a time when we present reports, from ministry areas as well as receiving the Financial report for 2016 and Budget for 2017.  We also elect our Vestry Leadership.  There are Nomination forms at the back of the church should you wish to Nominate people for Vestry. Please mark the date in your diaries and plan to be there.

A reminder too that you are welcome to join with me and others on a Thursday evening in the church at 7pm to pray for the process of appointing a new Vicar.

Blessings

Kevin

Interim Priest-in-charge
