Vicar on the Move…

Wayne announced last Sunday that he has been appointed to the Parish of St Michaels and All Angels Beaumaris. (This is a one centre parish, despite its long name!)
It is a four day a week role with a small traditional congregation
that aspires in the Lord to reach out to God and its community in loving service and witness.
Wayne will be commissioned there on the evening of Weds 11 August 7pm.
All are welcome to attend. (RSVP required, in time)
Wayne’s last Sunday at Christ Church will be 27 June at a combined 10am service
followed by lunch. RSVPs required for the lunch.
In your prayers this week, please remember:The Work of the Incumbency Committee
Almighty God, giver of all good gifts:  Look on your Church with grace and guide the minds of those who shall choose a pastor for this congregation, that we may receive a faithful servant who will care for your people and equip us for our ministries; through Jesus Christ our Lord.  (Lutheran Book of Worship, pg. 46)
