BISHOPS MARTIN AND MIKE

Having learned the sad news that Martin Seeley is to retire in February 2025, we have now also learned that Mike Harrison is to be the next Bishop of Exeter. I know that both our bishops are held in affection and esteem, and rightly so. As this cannot be said in every diocese in the Church, our heartfelt gratitude to Martin and Mike must be combined with heartfelt prayer for those now responsible for choosing a man or woman of God as our next diocesan bishop. (The new diocesan bishop will then be responsible for the appointment of their suffragan.)  Liam

 

DAY OF PRAYER FOR THE BENEFICE

A day of prayer for the benefice is planned for 24th July. As the plans are in their infancy, no details are yet available, except that I can be sure the day will conclude with Holy Communion at 7.00 p.m. before PCC in St. Martin's. Perhaps counter-intuitively, I have found a workday is best for this, with early morning and evening available for those going to work, with a schedule available so those at work can join us remotely for a few minutes during their breaks. The idea is to have times of quiet in church, times of led prayer for particular situations and people, and, of course, the offices of Morning and Evening Prayer, and the Litany.  Liam

 

CHURCHES TOGETHER IN NEWMARKET AND DISTRICT PRAYER MEETINGS:   

Prayer for Newmarket.  On the third Tuesday of the month at 7.00 p.m.

Next meeting: 

July 16th – Newmarket Prayer Walk; starting from All Saints Church

DUCK RACE 2024.  SATURDAY 13TH JULY.  The Christian Aid Committee is again gearing up for a few hours of family fun.  As usual, there will be the races for children and all comers at £1, as well as a local business’ sponsored race.  Lunch can be obtained from the tea table or BBQ, and hot and cold drinks and ice cream will be on offer.

This popular annual event raises funds for Christian Aid. The support of volunteers to set up, and run the day, and contribute to the food offering with cakes and savouries, is key to its success.  We would be very grateful to have this help.  If you have not done it before, you will be very welcome this time.  Please get in touch with Jan if you can offer a food item and support on the day on 07471942696 and Patsy Edwards would be grateful for any contributions to her Tombola.  Thank you everyone.  Jan Lovegrove

 

DUCK RACE TEDDY TOMBOLA.  Donations of soft toys for the Teddy Tombola can be dropped off with  Sue Howlett at: 318 Exning Road, or contact her on 07990 790741.  Thank you.  Sue

 

DUCK RACE TOMBOLA – Yes, the time has come round again! As the ducks are busy training for their racing day on 13th July, I am seeking prizes for the Tombola! They can be left in either church or please contact me and I can sort out collection/delivery. Many thanks in advance, Patsy Edwards 07711 348399.

 

PLEASE NOTE - EXNING VILLAGE FETE is being held on Saturday 27th July from noon to 5pm. Once again we will be running a hot drinks and cakes stall, which in previous years has raised approximately £225 for church funds. Please let me know if you can offer any time on 27th July, perhaps to set up and clear away afterwards or an hour or two to help man the stall. Any help would be greatly appreciated. We’ll also need lots of cakes, please! If you have freezer space, maybe you could start to put one it two in there now…. Thank you for any time/cakes you can offer. We can cover your expenses if you wish. Sally Pascall
