After sixteen happy and ground breaking years of ministry as Team Rector here, Michael Roden is leaving us for a new challenge at Bristol Cathedral. We warmly invite you to his farewell service on Sunday 25th November at 6.30pm. This will be followed by a chance to say thank you, over refreshments after the service. If you would like to contribute towards a leaving gift to him, please pass this to one of the Church Wardens. We look forward to seeing you there!
Ninety-nine years ago, the poet W B Yeats wrote ‘Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold.’ He was writing about a continent at the end of the First World War. The Russian revolution was happening, and the old political order was shifting. Whilst we live in peace, we also live in fevered political times where, as Yeats put it, ‘The best lack all conviction, while the worst are full of passionate intensity.’
At St Mary’s we are building a church that holds our diverse community together. If you feel you would like to be part of this, come along in 2018 and join in building our community.
