Dear Friends,

Just to say Thank You for all that you do in the name of our Lord Jesus.  This past month’s activities included a successful fundraising tea for Christian Aid.  Special thanks to the Cleavers for hosting the Annual Bluebell Walk, raffle and tea.  The Vintage Tea and plant sale brought many familiar and new faces into our church.  Remarkably the weather was dry and comfortable in spite of the dreary forecast.  But more than that, there was a real sense of community in the preparation and planning for the event, in the baking, delivery and sharing of a spectacular array cakes, treats, sandwiches and tea, in the contributions of plants and organising the sale and in the set-up/clean-up.  Thank you all so much! 

This month we can look forward to the Jim Thorne Jazz Quartet, 29th June, from 7.30pm. The St Peter’s Patronal service will bring all our parishes together to celebrate the life of St Peter and our church community.  We will be welcoming the new Dean of the Portsmouth, the Very Revd Dr Anthony Cane to lead and preach at St Peter’s Havenstreet.  The service will begin at 10:30am.  Please make a note in your diaries to support this celebration.

Most importantly is the upcoming Confirmation service 14th July at Newport Minster.  As we speak, our candidates are continuing with their preparations.  Please continue to pray for them.  And may the God of peace be with you always in everything you do.

All blessings,
