Rector’s Weekly Update

The Beaminster Area Team
From the Hub update Friday 28th October 2022

This week I have a number of reminders.

Sunday 30th is our annual memorial service for All Souls’ Tide. We have received a number of names of dearly departed loved ones to be read out in prayer. If you are reading this on Thursday or Friday before the event you can still add names by emailing or calling the team office or myself.

We look forward to welcoming families that we have supported through funeral ministry over the past few years and hope that members of the church family will come and give support.

Tomorrow Team Council meets in Beaminster at 7pm and we will be welcoming Anna Hardy to talk with us about stewardship, outreach, and fundraising, and especially about how we can benefit from providing card machines for visitors. This is an open meeting for any one to attend with their parish reps.

Deanery Synod also meets in Beaminster on Tuesday 8th November at 7pm and is open to treasurers to attend alongside elected members as Anna Hardy will be the guest speaker at this meeting too.

Remembrance Sunday is on the 13th November. Please check the Team News services page for times of service in your parish as they may differ to the usual pattern for that day. A reminder that the custom in Burstock is that it keeps its act of remembrance the week before so as not to clash with Broadwindsor and Blackdown.
