Oxford Diocesan Cursillo Weekend
April 16th to 19th
2015 Cursillo, a Spanish term for ‘short course in Christianity’ is “a movement of the Church, providing a method by which Christians are empowered to grow through prayer, study and action.” A Cursillo ’weekend’ runs from Thursday evening to Sunday afternoon. It’s aimed at those who have some knowledge of Christianity and wish to refresh and energise their faith. The next weekend is at the Cold Ash Centre, near Newbury. For further details see http://www.oxfordcursillo.co.uk/ If you’re interested please let me know as space is limited. Keith
Electoral Roll Revision and APCM
The electoral roll will be revised prior to our APCM (and meeting of parishioners to elect churchwardens) to be held on 26h April at 12.00noon in the Soltau Centre. Being on the electoral roll entitles you to vote in PCC elections at the APCM and is a sign of commitment to the Parish. If you are already on the electoral roll you don’t need to reapply. If you are not on our electoral roll please complete a form at the back of the church and give it to a Church Warden or Gilly at the Parish Office by Monday 30th March when the roll closes until after the APCM. Husbands and wives should each fill in one, or, if the details are the same complete one form signed by both.
Nomination forms for Churchwardens and PCC members are at the back of the churches. Please prayerfully consider if you should stand for these important roles.
