Rector’s Weekly Update

The Beaminster Area Team
From the Hub update March 18th 2022

The first of the APCMs have now taken place and it has been good to welcome a new member onto the PCC at Seaborough. As I write this week’s Hub I will be at Salway tonight (Thursday) and at Drimpton on Saturday morning. I will update you next week on the situation at Drimpton and their future. This week we have Netherbury’s meeting and I hope to see a good gathering at that. 

This Sunday at 6pm at St Mary’s Beaminster we will be holding a time of prayer and reflection for peace and the people of Ukraine and Russia and for those countries that are first places of reception for the millions of refugees making their way across the borders in search of safety. This will be for 30 minutes and we would love to welcome people gathered from across the team. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who have responded personally to the DEC appeal. 

It is with great sadness that I write to inform you of the death of Carol Lindsey following a time of deteriorating health. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Hugh and his family at this time. Since moving to Beaminster almost twelve years ago Carol has been a regular worshipper at Beaminster and greatly supported Hugh in his role as Churchwarden. Carol’s funeral will be at 2.30 pm on Friday 1st April at Beaminster.

Online Worship at Home video services continue even though churches are open. The online community continues to be an important part of our church – such as Thursday Evening Prayers and our increasingly popular Gin Church. As usual each Sunday’s video service will be available on the day before. We hope you continue to enjoy our weekly Rev Chat video. And in person in Beaminster you can join us for Baby & Toddler Group on Monday mornings and our Walk In Wednesday social gathering on Wednesday mornings.
