Gifts and Talents
Don’t forget to come along to the Gifts and Talents evening on Monday 1st July 7.30pm Hartley Hall. Your opportunity to find what you can do to be one of the labourers, and what you can sign up for, to help your parish.
The evening will provide a welcome from Fr. Antony, a short prayer input using imaginative contemplation, a very brief explanation of what is available. The rest of the session will be an opportunity to mix with others, ask questions and enjoy some cheese and wine. So bring a friend and tell others. “The harvest is rich but the labourers are few …” [Luke 10:2]
