It’s been a good while since we got together as Pastoral Visitors within The Village:

I invite you to save the date – November 20th, 4:30 pm – and come along so that we can meet together ahead of our final visiting round for 2022.  We will meet in the St Luke’s Lounge at our Redwood facility – Cnr Main North Rd and Daniels Rd.

This is a chance to share some interesting information with you as well as for you to share your ‘highs’ and ‘lows’ of visiting and an opportunity for you to input into how we can strengthen our visiting system moving forwards.

We aim to have the Summer edition of the Village News available for collection on this day as well as a short survey for you to encourage your visitees to complete!

Thank you for your contribution to our life together. Your visiting is a vital connection point linking many parts of The Village together.  Dan

The Creating of a Parish Profile for The Village:- The Village Church Parish Council is currently beginning the process of compiling a document called a Parish Profile.  The process requires the parish council to analyse the current state of the parish; spiritual, financial, membership etc; and to assess our future needs and aspirations.

This is part of the process looking at the Ministry moving forwards with Anne’s moving on. To engage a Ministry Settlement Board to call another minister, a parish profile is required to help assess the parish’s ability to support additional ministry.

Compiling this document is done in consultation with, and reporting to the congregation, the ministry team and the parish council. 

One of the first steps will be to gather some relevant information.  In November, a short survey will be sent to all members of the parish which will help us gather some statistical information and seek some comment about the life in The Village. We also want to take the opportunity to ask some questions about people’s views post COVID.

When you receive the survey, please complete and return it.  The information we collect will be important and useful for creating the parish profile.

Thursday Hour: 5pm at the Village Bryndwr, 3rd November.  Byo drinks, we provide the nibbles.  See you there!
