POOLE AND NORTH BOURNEMOUTH ANGLICAN DEANERY NEWSSHEET

 

 

 

January 2019

 

 

 

Some of this  information comes from the Communications Department of the Diocese and I am in touch with a number of other sources including the internet, magazines from our local churches and parishes in the Poole and North Bournemouth Deanery.   Please feel free to use as required.

 

 

 

 

 

GENERAL INFORMATION

 

 

 

ACCOMMODATION FOR REFUGEES

 

Churches Together in Poole is now supporting three families from Syria who have found refuge in Poole. They'd like to do more but desperately need accommodation. Please help by asking your congregation:  Do you own a property which you could let out? Might you be willing to consider accepting a rent which is lower than the market rent in order to provide for a refugee family. Please contact the Rev Michael Camp: 01202 801802: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

 

MORE FOR HAMWORTHY

 

Further to our welcome to Baptist Pioneer Minister John Good to Hamworthy, the parish magazine tells us that the Reverend Lucy Bolster, a self-supporting Anglican Pioneer Minister will shortly be moving to work on Turlin Moor.   And, what is more, there is a likelihood of an Associate Minister appointed by Salisbury Diocese to work mainly at St Gabriel’s.    The earlier pioneer work of many from the parish is now beginning to show the fruits of labours which at the time did not seem to be encouraging.

 

MAGAZINE CHANGES

 

Some parish/church magazines seem to have given up production in the past year or two, which does restrict information to those without internet access, but on the other hand some are changing tack, and congratulations to St Clement’s, Newtown, Parkstone, for starting a new theme and intending to produce bi-monthly issues from this month (January) and increasing pages.

 

CHANGE AROUND EMERGENCIES IN LOCAL WORSHIP

 

We send our sympathies, understanding and prayers to the Methodist Church organisation which covers centres from Bournemouth to Wool suffering from the need for two ordained ministers to be absent suddenly over the Christmas holiday period at least, with illness and a bereavement.
