A Spring colour to go with the weather! What a lovely weekend is promised: we have Reverend Jonathon Plows from St Thomas’s to lead the Parish Eucharist in Pitton and in Farley, Michael Barratt is taking the Evensong. The Farley Choir will be out in force and are well worth supporting!
Perhaps the most important notice is to invite you ALL to our Annual Parochial Church meeting next Sunday, the 29th April in Farley at 3pm which will be preceded by Tea and Cake at 2.30!! This is extra important this year as you will have a chance to find out more about the process for appointing a new Team Rector. The Tea and Cake time before the meeting itself is to encourage you to come and say what you hope for in this new person. They will be OUR VICAR in Farley with Pitton so it is good to have your say!
I have attached the Annual Report and I commend it to you. It comes without the Finance Report which will be available at the meeting itself. See what happened in our two churches in 2017 in the reports written by your two churchwardens.
With best wishes from Jane and Sara
Sung Evensong will be held at Farley church at 6.00 pm on April 22nd

Salisbury Street Pastors: A New Initiative Needs Your Help
In April a new Street Pastor initiative commences in the city centre – an early evening patrol based around the Cathedral Close, Elizabeth’s Garden’s, the High Street and little further around. The Cathedral has now recruited sufficient Street Pastors and they are being trained and commissioned shortly. This is a pilot scheme and will be reviewed in late September or October.
This new initiative now needs Prayer Pastors to support those out on patrol. The first patrol will be on Friday 27th April and every subsequent First and Last Friday of the month through the summer. The patrol will operate between 18:30 – 22:00, allowing for the handover to the late Patrol between 22:00 – 22:30. It is our hope to recruit sufficient Prayer Pastors to cover both Friday evening patrols and to enable each Pastor to cover just one Friday evening per month. Would you like to be a Prayer Pastor?
What does a Prayer Pastor do?
to ground the patrol in prayer;
to pray for the city especially for the night-time economy;
to pray for any emergencies or special needs which arise during the patrol;
to make tea/coffee for the returning Street Pastor patrol!
Those who join us as Prayer Pastors enjoy the sense of togetherness, the reward of praying for the patrol and the city and in exploring prayer in lots of different ways.
If you would like further information, or to discuss this with me, then please contact email@example.com or 01722 331647.
