Thoughts for July

Hail to July and its Summer blooms! (forget the hail we had in June!)

Our worship on the first day of this month began with a fine Parish Eucharist attended by members of all four churches in the Team Ministry. The robust singing of “Christ is made the sure foundation” opened the service and engendered that sense of unity we all feel on these occasions.

Looking forward planned activities are as follows:

  • Thursday 10 July – Mothers Union will be taking part in the worldwide Wave of Prayer at 1.30 pm followed by a meeting and tea.
  • Thursdays 12th and 19th July – Dr Johan Schoeman invites Dunstable parishioners to meet to raise awareness of the problem of Dementia.  It is proposed to discuss the typical early signs of the illness, and help for diagnosis and support for those affected.
  • Sunday 15th July – Cream Teas will be served at the Rectory from 3.00 pm to 5.00 pm.  Tickets £3.

Priory Bell Ringers would welcome volunteers to join them in the ancient craft of change ringing.  This can be a life-long pleasureable hobby and ensure that the sound of church bells will continue to be heard in our town.  Please contact Alan Shepherd on 603238 (text 07956 004 236)

Congregation members are also invited to offer to read the lessons and intercessions at our services. Please ring Priory Office 477422.

Confirmation November 2012 – please speak to a member of clergy for information.

Chellington youth weekend

At the end of September 21 young people from the parish aged between 10 and 17 spent the weekend at the Chellington Youth Centre in North Bedfordshire with Richard and Alison Andrews and Kaye and Ian Rogers.

Rhyannan Rogers writes…

Chellington with the parish was amazing once again this year.  We got up to lots of exciting things such as team games (which were very challenging) making our own dinner and getting to know the newcomers. It was good to see the people that I only see at Chellington and catching up with them. We carried on our tradition again this year and went for a walk around the local lake and going to the cafe for cake afterwards. We have a 10-15 minute worship each day to give us time to reflect on the events that have happened and to all come together in a quiet atmosphere. I would definitely recommend this weekend to any young people of the parish as its a good way to get to know other young members and have a fun weekend. Thank you again to Richard, Alison, Kaye and Ian for organizing a great weekend once again.
