Letter from Jimís Irregulars
WE would rather not have to
write this letter, for those of you who may not know, Jim is
in the Kent and Canterbury hospital fighting another bout of
serious illness. Lilly and the family are visiting on a
daily basis, PLEASE DO NOT visit Jim at the moment, FAMILY
Needless to say Jim and his
family need all the prayers, love and support we can give.
Prayers are being said daily by all of us, for any
information please contact any churchwarden or members of
the ministry team. Please, please, please do not try and
contact Lilly at the moment, do feel free to pop notes cards
etc through the vicarage letterbox.
It says a great deal about
Jim and his ministry that it needs some of us to get
together to cover the work he does.
Now down to practicalities,
it is our intention that the service pattern and frequency
will not change although the faces at the front might. The
ministers and churchwardens will be working closely together
to ensure continuity.
Occasional offices such as
weddings, baptisms and funerals:
If you have been talking to
Jim in the recent past with a view to a wedding or a baptism
please return any forms already sent/given to you as soon as
you are able. If you are unsure how to proceed please speak
to Carol Downs on 01797 361673 who will be able to direct
you to the best point of contact for your enquiry.
For funerals, if you would
like a specific minister please speak to your funeral
Jim. Being the man he is,
would not want us to mope about but to get on with our
lives. We will do our best Jim but we have got used to
seeing you and Lilly among us and things will not seem quite
right until you are back with us God willing.
John would like to take this
opportunity to thank all those who have been very supportive
over the last few weeks as he has dealt with the death of
