The Reverend Julie Coleman - Priest-in-Charge

Dear Friends,

May is a delightful month when the dawn chorus of bird song reaches its full crescendo and there are signs of new life everywhere. There are new lambs in the fields, ducklings in the streams and the first sightings of the swallow’s arrival. It’s a time to plant out the seedlings and everywhere people are vigorously attending to their vegetable plots and gardens.  It is a time of hope and anticipation for the new season, that this year it will be the best ever!

The Bible is full of stories about people who had hope when faced with the challenge of the changes in their daily lives. Challenges that could bring them either growth and success or failure by the choices they made. There are moments in these stories with which we can all identify with and which cause us to reflect and think further. Challenges which we have to face in our spiritual lives and how we make our own decisions and conclusions.  At the middle of the month on the 14th May the Christian Church celebrates  Ascension Day when they remember Jesus’ ascension into heaven. It is one of the earliest festivals dating back to the first early church, which marks the conclusion of Jesus earthly ministry and the beginning of his new heavenly phase. In his resurrection ministry we receive a fresh hope for a new season in our daily lives knowing that Jesus ever intercedes on our behalf.

I invite you to join us at the Ascension Day (Thursday 14th May) Holy Communion service in St. Peter and St. Pauls, Dymchurch at 10.30 am.

With every blessing,

Julie  

Below is a recent email received from Archdeacon Philip regarding our new magazine which I would like to share with you.

 

Dear Julie, the ministry team and PCC’s in the Romney Benefice

I was thrilled to be able to receive and read the first edition of the ‘Marsh Matters’ magazine yesterday.

This is such a milestone achievement and I congratulate everyone for the efforts made in publishing this excellent tool for mission and community resource.

CONGRATULATIONS!

With much love and Easter greetings to you all

Philip
