It has been an interesting week for us as we both farewell Richard Dyer as Priest-in-Charge and welcome our Regional Deans, Susan Howarth and Joe Keighley, as our new Priests-in-Charge.
We are also preparing for the different ways that church will 'look' at each of the different levels as we have increasing options available to us.
Therefore Sue Howarth's sermon this Sunday - 'Changing Lives in the Midst of Changing Life' - is even more poignant. Join us online from 8am to hear from both Sue and Joe, as well as seeing other familiar faces.
NELSON ANGLICAN NEWSLETTER
Issue 4 of the Nelson Anglican Newsletter can be found HERE. It has some very helpful information about what moving to Level 3 will mean for church, as well as thoughtful reflections from Bishop Steve and others.
AT HOME WITH BISHOP STEVE
Many of you will know Zane and Karen Elliott, who used to be members of our parish and are now serving in Indonesia. This week, Bishop Steve interviews Zane about what they have been up to. Check out the interview here:
As we prepare to celebrate ANZAC day tomorrow, you might like to consider reading some of the reflections from our parishioners on this very topic. Special thanks again to our own Rose Francis for her beautiful tributes:
GOOD MENTAL HEALTH
Once more may we remind you that there are some wonderful resources available to you if you, or someone you know, is struggling during our time of lockdown. Being isolated is difficult for many of us. The Health Flyer located on our website is an excellent resource that provides simple and clear advice for all aspects of wellbeing.
NATIVITY PRAYER CHAIN
Our prayer chain is very much active during this time. If you have anything you would like prayer for, or if you would like to join with others in prayer, please contact either Jane or Raewyn.
And don't forget that the Nativity Staff are available to answer your queries. You can contact us either via email or phone.
Have a blessed weekend!
