Vicar's update 21st AugSteve Newbold  2017 web2

Tomorrow, we are interviewing for our new post of Youth Worker.  This has been a longed for ambition and we are praying that we will be able to make a good appointment.  Would you pray those of us involved for us please?
 
We are also hoping to appoint an Intern from September who will work both at St Stephen’s and with The Grove missional community. The person who may be appointed is a 19 year old young woman from Devon.  St Stephen’s will fund accommodation for her and ideally she would like to live with a family for the year.  Might there be someone in our church who has a room that they could offer?  This could provide added benefits of a live in baby sitter! Please let me know if you might be interested – remember we will pay for this.

Polar Explorers, our children’s Holiday Club takes place next week.  Please pray for the team and all those children who are coming.  It was a great success last year and many children are coming back but there are still a few places left.  Please help fill them by inviting any families you know to consider sending their children – they will have a great time!  Further details on the website.
 
Don’t forget, Alpha starts again on Wednesday 20th September at 8pm.  If you haven’t done Alpha yet, why not consider taking part this autumn?  If not you, who might you invite to come along this year?  Invitation cards to give out are available in church.

With my love 
 
Steve
