Mid-Week Communions

 

“Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit, He takes away;  and every branch that bears fruit, He prunes it so that it may bear more fruit.”  John 15:2

 

As we enter the interregnum it has become clear that we have needed to do a little pruning, hopefully so that new growth may come about!    Without a rector it became clear that we couldn’t maintain the previous rota of mid-week services. 

 

We have therefore tried to spread them more evenly throughout the month.  We have also seen growth at Hothfield Lakeside.  Where once there was a home communion, we now have a reasonably good regular attendance.  Therefore, for the duration of the interregnum we will be trying a new pattern of mid-week communions, as follows :

 

Week 1 : Friday morning (Iona) at Westwell

Week 2 : Thursday afternoon (BCP)

                                     at Lakeside, Hothfield

Week 3 : Tuesday morning at Charing

Week 4 : Wednesday morning at Charing Heath

 

We’ll keep this under review, and I would welcome your comments.  Please see Pew News, the website, or door notices, for details of when these services will take place.
