Vicars Monthly Letter

October Letter

My Dear Friends,

Well the nights are drawing in and the poor summer that we had is now a distant memory.  Whatever we think of this year one thing I think we can all agree on is that it has certainly been a memorable year.  This year has been challenging on a personal level, as a nation and indeed for the entire world.  How we face that challenge depends on our circumstances and also what support we have.  And the church of St James the Great is exactly the same.

In June this year we along with many churches were to have our Annual Parochial Church Meeting (APCM), these were then suspended until further notice.  I am now pleased to inform you that we will now be having our APCM on the 1st of November at St James’ after the Sunday morning Eucharist.  However, how they are held will be different.  Reports will shortly be sent to those on the church Electoral Roll.  These reports give information about the church and give the opportunity to ask questions of church officials.  These meetings are public meetings however because of the restrictions on numbers allowed in church, attendance will be limited.  This year we will be also having our meeting on Zoom to hopefully allow as many people to join the meeting albeit through the internet.

If you would like an electronic copy of our reports, book a place at the meeting or to attend via Zoom please read the article on the subsequent page in this issue on what to do.

Your friend and priest
