Help!

We need volunteers to help in a number of roles, particularly during the vacancy. Please don’t rely on everyone else to do the work. Details are on the Vacancy Noticeboard at the back of the church. Please speak to a Churchwarden if you can help.

Churchyard Manager required

We need a volunteer to take on this role for the Wadhurst Churchyard. It is not an onerous role but Michael Hardcastle, who has served in this role for many years is stepping down in September. The role description is on the noticeboard at the back of the church or speak to Michael (783489) for details. If you can help please speak to Churchwardens Chris Bithell or Anne Brignell.

David and Steff James

Jeremy, Ruth and Philippa had a wonderful day in Bristol on 23 June when David and Steff were married. We are conscious of so many prayers that have been answered in the last few months. We would like to thank our friends in Wadhurst, Tidebrook and Stonegate who have shown love and concern for David and Steff and expressed this in prayer.

Grid Youth Group

We need you! We need adult volunteer helpers, as much as you can do, once or twice a month. Chat to Anita & Justice 01892 783332. You can join us for taster sessions before committing as a regular helper.

Progress in The Vacancy

The Wardens of Wadhurst, Tidebrook and Stonegate, working closely with the Archdeacon of Hastings, are progressing the work needed to appoint a new incumbent. An advert will appear in The Church Times on Friday 6th July, and in the next two editions. Applicants will be sent a copy of the Parish Profile which will enable them to have an overview of the needs of our 3 parishes and to understand the qualities and characteristics of the person we are seeking to appoint. The closing date for applications is August 14 and the interviews will be held in September. If all goes well and our prayers are answered there could be a new incumbent in post by January 2019.
A copy of the Parish Profile may be accessed here. All documents relevant to the Vacancy can be found on the noticeboard at the back of the church.

Who let the Dads out?

For those who have the privilege of being Dads, Granddads, Great Granddads and Step dads this is a great opportunity to spend quality time with their kids (up to 6 years of age) with bacon rolls, refreshments and toys provided. Wadhurst Parish Church 09:30 to 11:30 Saturday 28th July 2018 – please come along.

School Leavers’ Bibles

As usual, we shall give Bibles to children leaving Wadhurst & Stonegate Primary Schools. The Bibles will be presented at the end of term services in July. We welcome contributions towards the cost of the Bibles; gifts, in a clearly marked envelope and gift aided if possible, can be placed in the collection at Sunday services or given to Jean Sermon in the church office.
