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

A Church Near You
Exciting plans for phase two of A Church Near You have been announced.
This summer, churches will have the opportunity to use their page as their website, using their existing domain name. Extra functionality will be rolled out to ensure churches have the features needed to use the secure platform as their site, such as a gallery, news blogs and analytic information. This could save some parishes up to £500 a year. 
'A Church Near You' editors will be the first to hear when phase two goes live. If you haven’t yet claimed your A Church Near You page, visit, find your church’s page and click ‘Edit this church’!

Vice Chancellor Needed
The management board of the new Episcopal University in Juba needs to appoint a Vice Chancellor as soon as possible, to help establish the University and to mentor a South Sudanese successor. It is envisaged the person would be appointed for two or three years. The person would need to have experience of University Governance at a senior level, and be in sympathy with the Christian foundation of the University. More information about how the university is evolving can be found on the website.
Ron Hart is happy to talk to anyone who might be interested. Email him here.

Almshouse Flats in Salisbury
St Nicholas’ Hospital, Salisbury is an almshouse with an ancient Christian foundation situated on the southern side of Salisbury, within walking distance of the city centre. It offers flats to “persons of good character in need of assistance” - who are able to live independently. Three flats are available.

‘why on earth…?’ is a new Church Army resource – a lively collection of sessions for small groups. Each session gives an easy way into one of the hard questions of faith and includes a short, animated video. It takes seriously the group members’ own ideas and questions on the subject, and asks what difference these big questions make in the real world. Sounds good!
