Kevin Martin was ordained at St Peter's Church last week, by Bishop Nicholas and joins us as curate.  Team Rector the Revd Helen Dawes has these words of thanks following the service: "An enormous THANK YOU to everyone who made Kevin's ordination such a joyous celebration! Thank you to the bishop's chaplain and office team for arranging the service and producing the service books, thank you to our musicians and choir, to the flower arrangers, bell ringers, church cleaners and to everyone who brought or served food at the party and to those who washed up afterwards. Thank you to Bishop Nick for leading us in glorious worship and to the Ven Vanessa Herrick for inspiring us with her words. Finally, thank you to everyone I'll realise I should have mentioned...Now we continue with the work of the Church, and for that, thanks be to God!"

Following on from the much talked about presentation on the 19th February, given by Revd Simon Chambers, the second of our talks about 'What makes a Vicar' is on Sunday 19th March at Motcombe. Pam will talk about her work in the Pilsdon community among other things.

This relaxed afternoon slot aims to help those of us in the pews understand that 'calling' can come at any time, not always conveniently, and lead us to work we hadn't necessarily had on our 'life-plan' agenda.

Again there will be refreshments and a chance
for you to ask questions to all of our clergy.

So if you you ever wondered what makes a vicar,
what they are and what they do?
Here is your chance to find out.

All Welcome

Sunday 19th March - 3:00pm - St Mary’s Motcombe
