Rector’s Weekly Update

The Beaminster Area Team
From the Hub update Friday 4th November 2022

The Quiet Day for the team is coming fast. Saturday 19th November 9am-2:30pm in Netherbury Village Hall, starting with coffee and ending with light lunch. The day will lead us into Advent with a theme of From Darkness to Light and will be led by the Rev Dr David Campbell, Lead Chaplain of Sherborne School. So as to assist with numbers for catering, please can you let Mrs Jacky Bush or myself know if you intend to join the day.

On the same theme as the Quiet Day, this year’s team Advent Carol Service will be taking place on Advent Sunday 27th November at 6pm in St Mary’s Netherbury. This will follow the pattern of readings, prayers and Advent carols and anthems in candlelight. To alleviate any parking difficulties, it would be advisable to car share.

Thank you to those who attended last Monday’s Team Council meeting and welcomed Anna Hardy. I am sure that like myself you found her lively presentation full of good advice regarding stewardship and ways of helping raise funds through online giving. Anna will be coming to Deanery Synod on Tuesday to share with a wider gathering and the meeting is open to all Treasurers to attend alongside elected Synod members. The meeting is at St Mary’s Beaminster starting at 7pm.
