At our extra meeting of the Parochial Church Council held recently it was decided that we would introduce a non-eucharistic service at 10.00am on the Second and Fifth Sundays of the month. The style of service will be appropriate to families with children, those new to the Christian faith and to being part of a church.
It is likely that the first service will be in January because there are many things that need to be explored, decisions taken and resources organised; let alone advertising, letters and invitations!
Perhaps the most important thing is for members of our existing congregation to share in this service so that newcomers experience the warm Hildeburgian welcome.
Would anyone interested in being part of a working party to explore the various issues raised by this idea offer their services to our Vicar Martin - thank you.
