CHURCH NEWS

Weekly newsletter: People who are on our Contact List have been invited to join a pilot project to receive a weekly newsletter so that they can keep in touch with church news even when they can’t be in church on a Sunday. If the pilot is successful, the newsletter will become a regular feature next year. If you have not received an invitation and would like to help try this out, please put your name on the Contact List – fill in a blue form at the back of the church, or print the form from the website https://www.anglican.lu/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/Contact-Form-18-May-2018.pdf

This is Nick Jones’ last Sunday with us.  Nick was very instrumental in obtaining our amplification system and has kindly donated two new microphone stands as a parting gift.  We wish him well for the future.

Jill Fleming and Aidan Mullan are getting married on 30 August at the National Trust Mussenden Temple in Castlerock, Northern Ireland.  We wish them every happiness in their new life together.

The Church Council will meet again at 8.00 pm on Wednesday, 19 September and will focus on the MAP process.

Please email Elaine in the Church Office if you have any news you would like to share with us.
