Announcements

by Michael Ford last modified 17 Sep, 2018 06:51 PM

The e-Bulletin is a weekly update from around the Diocese on Tuesdays. The items below are from its 'Announcements' section.

God Needs YOU!
We need people from parishes involved in oversight of the Diocese’s work. God needs people to serve on a range of boards from ensuring financially solvency to mission and ministry. Find out more.

Annual Reports and Budgets
The approved diocesan Budget Guide and A3 Poster have been added. Page here

Cancelled – PCC Officer Training on 22 September. More sessions will be available in 2019.

To be human is to have questions, such as ‘What is the point of wasps?’, ‘Where did I leave my keys?’, ‘Why am I here?”, “What is the point of life?”, “Is there a God?” If you could ask anything at all about life and God, what would it be? St Mary’s and United Church want to find out Ferndown’s [and your] Big Questions! A poll will run from 1 to 29 October. No question is off-limits. A Top 4 will be collated, and a series of discussions will follow in November. Info here

100 miles in 2 days
Our diocesan Head of Finance, Liz Ashmead, plans an endurance horse ride in aid of Dorset Historic Churches Trust and Frome St Quintin Church. Can Liz and Zhaheen last the course?

Finding God in Everyday Life
During September, the Church of England is inviting people on a journey to discover God, Sunday to Saturday. Through stories and reflections, and by starting and ending each day with prayers of invitation and reflection, we can find where God is in our everyday life, and share our faith. Join in! Info, short video and signups here

Church Support Hub- ‘Remembering’
Look ahead to a special Remembering season this year and an important opportunity to connect with families before Christmas. Info and resources for the Armistice, Remembrance, BBC Children in Need, and Christmas here

Where do you look for comfort in the Bible?
You might head to the Psalms or perhaps Revelation 21.4, when 'He will wipe every tear from their eyes.' As we approach the centenary of the end of World War One, we remember those who sacrificed their lives, and the conflicts ravaging our world today. Bible Society has brought to life the words of Revelation 21.1-7 in a touching film voiced by people from different walks of life. View it here
