NEW INCUMBENT: The new Rector for St Mary's Denver, and for the other three parishes in the group has been announced. The Rev'd Judith Grundy will be inducted at a service on September 7th at St Mary's (exactly 12 months to the day since John Isaacs preached his last service in the group). Judith is married with three teenage boys and a nine year old girl. Her husband is also ordained, and is presently her Vicar, but is seeking to train as a languages teacher at High School level. The Grundy family will live in the Rectory at Denver.
INTERCESSIONS: Please let one of our churchwardens know (see tel nos. above) if you, or anyone you know, needs prayer, for sickness, or any other personal or family problem (in absolute confidence: No details are made public unless you wish it). We will gladly add any names to our weekly intercession list.) We believe that God hears and answers prayers, according to His plan and purpose for your life.
We expect work on the heating to begin soon. Final decisions awaited from Diocesan Advisory Committee. Hoped to be completed by July.
