‘Paraclesis’ – Sharing the Journey

Following on from the ‘Paraclesis’ Course last year a number of people filled in ‘Journey Cards’. Having experienced various life events themselves they are now offering to walk alongside others who might be going through similar things.

In summary, help can be offered to those facing up to bereavement or struggling with depression. Help can be offered to those who find themselves as single parents with all the challenges that that brings – particularly with teenage children. Offers of help have also been made to those facing serious illness, or coping with life-changing/life-threatening surgery. Help can also be offered to those facing financial crisis or dealing with life-changing experiences or traumatic events.

If anybody, currently facing up to any of these things, would appreciate someone walking alongside them then please speak to James (Vicar), Stephen (Curate) or Katrina (Lay Reader).

It must also be added that, even if none of the above concerns apply to you, but there are other concerns that you would like to talk to someone about there are people ready to listen and journey with you. Again please speak to James (Vicar), Stephen (Curate) or Katrina (Lay Reader).

Urgent need for a new Churchwarden at St.Stephen’s!

With just over a month to go until the APCM there is an urgent need for a new Churchwarden at St.Stephen’s. Robert Leeder and Clare Leppard are our current Wardens and they are both excellent. However, Clare is now standing down, having already very kindly done a year longer than she intended to! A replacement is urgently needed. If this is a role that you would consider taking on (maybe God is prompting you even!) then please do speak to me or to Clare or to Robert.

Thank you
James
