News for August

Summer Blossoms!

August is here with its thoughts of holidays, sitting in the garden, days out with the family, plans for new ventures and all in the hope that the whole week of sunshine we’ve recently enjoyed will continue.

Of course the Olympic contests are in full swing after the wonderful opening ceremony which welcomed our world-wide visitors and athletes on an amazing evening in July.  Those of us who remained glued to the television till 1 am aver that it was the most surprising, inventive, artistic, spectacular, original and humorous presentation we could have imagined.  (I think I’ve left out some adjectives!)

General items of Priory church news are as follows:

  • Revd Roni Goodman is coming to the end of her four years as Curate at the Priory.  We congratulate her on her appointment as Rector of Meppershall and Shefford and thank her for the dedication and service she has given us all. Roni’s final Priory service will be at 915 am on Sunday 9th September and her Institution at Meppershall is on Wednesday 26th September.
  • During August the Priory Choirs are singing at Exeter and Chichester Cathedrals.  We wish them a happy and enjoyable time.
  • A Coffee Morning will be held in church on Saturday 1st September.
  • Please support Food Bank and Friends in Deed schemes as you are able.
