This Sunday (15 May) is the Feast of Pentecost (Whitsunday). We welcome as our president and preacher the new Bishop of Edmonton who will be making his first visit to St Jude's.


At 4 in the afternoon (for an hour) we have our second 'Mission Action Planning' meeting over tea in the church.  Everyone is welcome.  

Mission Action Planning is essentially a process through which we seek to discern God’s activity in our parish and how we are supporting or impeding it. It isn’t about ‘planning to have a mission’, but identifying and developing our own part in the continuing mission of the greater church of which we are but a small, local part.

Eventually we will try to produce a Mission Action Plan, as the Diocese calls it: “an organic document, expressing our church’s DNA; a working tool that should also grow and change as our work for the Kingdom in our particular locale develops”.
