The summer holidays are in full swing for anyone with a link to the education system, which is why I’m on holiday.
I'm back ‘in harness’ from Monday 7th August, from when I will be starting to contact some of you to meet up and chat informally, as well as starting to put together material on stewardship (in its broadest sense) for our Life Groups this autumn.
Graham, Chris and I have been hugely encouraged by the welcome and understanding you’ve shown us over the last few weeks. Thank you. I am sure that in my absence you will provide the same warm Eversley welcome to those covering your Holy Communion services and preaching - to whom my thanks.
Please pray for the legal processes, including DBS, that are involved with the appointment of your new Priest-in-Charge, for all those who travel this summer that they may be kept safe, and for all those who struggle to carve out appropriate time for rest and relaxation.
Please also pray for those among the Eversley community who are struggling with ill-health in a whole variety of ways, including those who care long-term for members of their family.
Go well and God bless.
Rev'd Mrs Rachel Hartland
