St Luke's Anglican Church in Enmore a lively, inclusive welcoming liturgical community

Notices — Sixth Sunday after Easter — 17th May 2020


Changes Afoot – At the time of pre­par­ing this ser­vice book­let there is spec­u­la­tion about the return of ‘wor­ship in per­son’.  I am aware that many are want­ing to get back to ‘phys­ic­al’ Church ser­vices ASAP.  At the same time, oth­ers are anxious and unsure about it.   I am wait­ing for offi­cial advice from the Dio­cese regard­ing these mat­ters.  Through­out this time, we have fol­lowed the dir­ec­tions of the Arch­bish­op and this will con­tin­ue to be the case in the com­ing days and weeks.  Fr. Jeff

Con­firm­a­tion – Booked in for Sunday 23rd August (but wait­ing to be advised).  Bp Michael Stead will be here for con­firm­a­tion.  Any­one who is not con­firmed is invited to go through the pro­cess of pre­par­a­tion with Fr Jeff.  Please speak to Fr Jeff about this.

Zoom Morn­ing Tea – 11.30am Sunday Morn­ing: These are a great way to catch up with a num­ber of parish­ion­ers.  If you are not famil­i­ar with the tech­no­logy, all you have to do to join a ses­sion is to click on the email link that is sent out each week.

Please remem­ber our little friends - Don’t for­get to keep your cooked food scraps, fruit peel­ings, tea leaves and cof­fee grounds for the par­ish worm farms.  (No cit­rus, dairy or meat).  You can still drop this off out­side the office — dur­ing office hours. 

If you would like some worm cast­ings for your garden you can leave a buck­et or bag at the rect­ory with your details.  Our little fer­til­izer factor­ies have been doing a won­der­ful job and the fruit of their labours is now avail­able.

Any notices for the ser­vice book­let will need to be sub­mit­ted to the Par­ish Office email by Tues­day even­ing at the latest.  This is so we can post out the weekly ser­vice book­let earli­er.
