Sunday 10th July 2022

Our services this Sunday are:

8am Book of Common Prayer Holy Communion at St Andrew’s Church, Lower Bemerton. A 45 minute said service in traditional English.

10am Holy Communion/Eucharist at St Michael’s Church, Bemerton Heath. A 60 -75 minute service in modern English and including four hymns/songs.

A couple of items which didn’t make the newsletter (found below). We are very excited to announce that Salisbury Foodbank will be returning to St Michael’s Community Centre from the beginning of August. They will be open from 3pm to 6pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays. This starting at the beginning of August is totally dependent on volunteers coming forward to run the Foodbank. If you are interested please volunteer with Salisbury Foodbank direct through their website https://salisbury.foodbank.org.uk/

The second item is to announce that Ana and Tod Gobledale are retiring as the ministers at Salisbury United Reformed Church this Sunday (10th July). Ana and Tod have been in post since 2015 and they will be missed for their faith, support and activism in the city. There is a Farewell Tea at 5pm at the United Reformed Church to give thanks for their ministry and wish them a long and joy filled retirement. All invited.

“We believe in inclusive church – a church which celebrates and affirms every person and does not discriminate.

We will continue to challenge the church where it continues to discriminate against people on grounds of disability, economic power, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, learning disability, mental health, neurodiversity, or sexuality.

We believe in a Church which welcomes and serves all people in the name of Jesus Christ; which is scripturally faithful; which seeks to proclaim the Gospel afresh for each generation; and which, in the power of the Holy Spirit, allows all people to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Jesus Christ.
