Upcoming Events in September 2015

Children and Communion

Wednesday 2nd September at 7.30pm

St. Albans Diocese has a policy that children over the age of 7 years may receive Holy Communion but this can only happen following a certain process. Firstly the PCC must agree to allowing us, as a church, to explore the possibility of children receiving communion before confirmation. There must be teaching about Baptism, Confirmation and Holy Communion and there must be opportunities for everyone to come together to learn about and to discuss the issues and implications. Everyone must be permitted to listen and express their thoughts. Following this process the PCC will then vote on whether we will apply to the Bishop of St. Albans to ask his permission to admit children over 7 years of age to Holy Communion.

This is a big decision for us all and we all need to think carefully and talk about how we feel and what we would like to happen.

This meeting will be the first opportunity to come together to hear about and to discuss the issues. Ruth Pyke, the Diocesan Childrens Adviser, will be with us to talk to us and answer any questions we may have.

Please put this date in your diary and make every effort to be there. It is especially important the PCC members, the parents of our Sunday School children and those who work with our children come along to this meeting if they possibly can.

Sunday School Welcome Back Party

Sunday 6th September after the service

Fun, games and food to start the new Sunday School term. Pam has brought a new cricket set and has been practicing her bowling!

It would be helpful if people could let us know who will be there so we can sort out the food.
