Parish magazine Summer 2020

Who’d have thought that we’d have a third issue completed during lockdown! We thrive on personal contact, so it’s a big challenge to share our thoughts when that contact is so drastically curtailed. And yet our lovely band of contributors continues to write and we, once again, have a Parish magazine full of news and…

Parish magazine June 2020

Here we are with a second issue of this magazine completed during lockdown! I know a few of our usual contributors met my reminder email with a sigh, wondering what they would write…. and I have to admit that I researched a few extra articles, just in case…. But I needn’t have worried, as you’ll…

Parish magazine May 2020

There was never any doubt in my mind that, during these unsettling times, we wouldn’t publish a Parish magazine. I hope you enjoy the varied contributions in this issue. There are lots of stories of what we’re all up to (and the gems we’re uncovering as we clean and sort!), an interesting commentary on isolation…

Parish magazine April 2020

So much has happened in the last month. Who could have predicted that our churches, schools, pubs, clubs, restaurants and other public venues would be closed, that we would all be at home, practising social distancing and thinking carefully about how we shop for food and other essentials. We have a whole new vocabulary – social distancing,…

Parish magazine March 2020

After a packed and busy magazine for the beginning of the year, this March issue has a gentler, more settled feel – perhaps appropriate as we are in Lent and in a time of prayer, contemplation and thoughtfulness. That’s not to say there haven’t been events and gatherings in all our churches – and lots of…

Parish magazine Lent 2020

They say that if you have 20/20 vision, your eyesight is ‘perfect’! I don’t know about ‘perfect’ but from the wide and varied contributions I’ve received for this magazine, I do know that there are lots of you that are very good at looking back and looking forward! Thank you all for your amazing contributions. Many of the articles look back at…

Liturgical Colours – Part 1

Happy New Year! How is the new decade treating you? 2020 started well for me. I had a birthday, and turned 21 – the Celsius version of my actual age! I mention it because of the many wishes, cake and cards. I want to say thank you to you all, not only for your birthday…

Parish magazine December 2019

It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas! Although I have to say, it’s quite strange to see election leaflets and posters vying for space with the usual Christmas cards and decorations. As they say, “we live in interesting times!” And this month’s magazine is full of interesting things – a real mix of content…
