Clarendon Team News – Pentecost 2018

Dear Friends,

What a wonderful day for a Royal Wedding and what a glorious weekend for the happy couple to start their married life together!

Tomorrow we celebrate Pentecost across the Team so do be sure to get to church on this great festival.
Farley have a visiting Preacher called David Blackwall presiding at the Eucharist.
Pitton have their Annual Covenant Service combined with the Pentecost celebrations in a service led by both Bryan Coates and Debbie McIsaac. You will be able to see the special Altar banner made with the PathFinders.

Thank you to the organisers of the Christian Aid coffee morning which we hope made a good donation to this worthy cause.
Please pray for all those involved in the Appointment process and for the person who God is prompting to apply.

We wish you a very happy weekend from Jane and Sara and please see below the Team Notices.


We wanted to tell you that things are moving! At the beginning of next week our advertisement for a new Team Rector, together with our Team and Parish profiles will be sent to the Diocese. The advertisement will be placed on Friday 1st June. Please continue praying for the right candidate to come forward.

There are no Funerals in the Team this week.

For those who remember Dr John Baston RIP who was a doctor in Whiteparish for many years, his funeral is to be held in the Cathedral on Friday 25th May at 11am.

Naomi Bersweden recently said that she wanted everyone to know that she had bought a food processor with her Team leaving present and LOVES it! She is cooking all sorts of different things and her parents are loving the results!

Evensong will be held in Farley Church on Sunday 27th May at 6pm. We look forward to seeing you there.

There will be a coffee morning on Wednesday 30th May from 10am-12 noon at Kestrels, Mill Lane, Winterslow in support of Winterslow Church.  Tickets will be available for the Open Gardens event.

After all the events in Salisbury in the last few months and the stress and flurry of activity caused by the looming GDPR deadline and preparing Team documents I thought this would be a good time to include the following:

Bishop’s Letter from this month’s issue of The Grapevine by the Rt Revd Nicholas Holtam, Bishop of Salisbury

We are made for goodness, although the state of the world can make us feel otherwise.
It was a long, grey, wet winter with a hot and cold but wet Spring.  Maybe I am just getting older but the weather was breaking records for one extreme after another. The summer sunshine and long days are very welcome.

Salisbury has had its problems recently. The impact of the nerve gas attack on the Skripals continues as the city seeks to recover its place as a destination for shoppers and tourists who want to enjoy a peaceful day out.

What took place here is being used internationally in ways that do not leave me feeling comforted.  What I want, and pray for, is peace between all people. The beautiful exhibition of origami doves in the cathedral expresses that and the city has responded positively.

Many shops have doves in their windows. The story we want to tell from Salisbury is of our overcoming terror and violence and making peace.

The international news of late has been grim – the opening of the US embassy in Jerusalem; the appalling violence in Gaza; the suicide bombing in Indonesia by families, including children; the continuing violence in Syria, Yemen, and Iraq… and so on and on and on.
It makes the way we live our daily lives all the more important as a response to the world.
We are made for goodness. Seek to build on it in whatever ways you can.
The Royal Wedding is helping to cheer the whole country up. In some ways that is pretty superficial but if it causes us to think about whom we love, to value relationships, and commit more deeply that is a very good thing.

The world gets changed by millions of small actions for good. Let’s do it.
