The excitement and splendour and solemnity of the Coronation weekend will stay in our memories for a long time. The promises and vows our King, Charles III, has taken are immense, powerful and wide ranging. It is no wonder that they are taken in a Christian place of worship, which has seen the Coronation of many Kings & Queens over the years.
The King can only keep his promises and vows with the help of God, who is at the centre of his life, as it was for his mother, Queen Elizabeth II. King Charles now takes her place as the Head of the Church of England.
Let us ensure that we continue to pray for him and Queen Camilla - for the strength and stamina to carry out their duties with integrity, love and joy.
On Sunday 4th June, we welcome the Bishop of Bristol, the Rt Revd Vivienne Faull, to celebrate the completion of the work on St Andrew's following the theft of the lead roof in February 2022. This is Trinity Sunday, which reminds us that God is the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. God is three and God is one.
It is a good time to remember that the 4 churches of our Benefice also need to work together. We have a common purpose and gifts to share with each other - to encourage and strengthen each one of us as we seek to live out Christ's commandment to love one another.
With love & prayers
If you are planning to get married in any of our Churches this year please be in touch with Sandy as soon as possible.
