Palm Sunday

  

              

Holy Trinity Youth Club celebrated their first year of meeting together with a BBQ for all members and their families. There was food (lots and lots of it!), there was egg throwing, there was ultimate Frisbee, and there was a lot of laughter!

      

It's been a great first year for the Youth Club and the leaders and members are already looking forward to the new term. If you would like to join in the fun and games, here's what you need to know...

Holy Trinity Youth Club meets once a month on a Friday evening for those in school years 5 and above. It costs £1 per session (first session free), with a tuck shop, and runs from 7.45-9pm in Holy Trinity Church.

Almighty God, whose most dear Son went not up to joy but first he suffered pain, and entered not into glory before he was crucified:  mercifully grant that we, walking in the way of the cross, may find it none other than the way of life and peace;  through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.    Amen

Team Staffing

Following Brian Chave’s move to become Bishop Richard’s Chaplain in July of last year the Churchwarden’s of the Team, Ruth Hulse and I have been having a meeting more or less every fortnight to discuss the way forward with regard to staffing in the West Hereford Team. 
Bishop Richard, Archdeacon Paddy and Prebendary Paul Towner, the Rural Dean, have each attended one of these meetings. Ruth and I have also seen the Bishop and the Archdeacon on other occasions. As part of the process to appoint our new Team Vicar, Bishop Richard has directed that we engage with the Diocesan procedure for appointing an incumbent.  
This includes a review of ministry of the whole team and the writing of a statement of needs. This document will form the basis for ministry in the Team for the future. 
The way the statement of needs is created is by a Team wide consultation which takes place on a Saturday morning from 9.30am until 12.30pm. The meeting is facilitated by two officers from the Diocesan Local Ministry Office.  
Everyone from the Team who has any interest in mission and ministry in West Hereford is invited to attend. The guidance notes indicate that the meeting should be a priority for PCC Members and Churchwardens. 
Our Consultation day is Saturday 27th February and we shall meet at Lord Scudamore School, Friar Street, Hereford, HR4 0AS where there is plenty of parking. Please do put this date in your diary and do your utmost to be present. 
Without wishing to pre-empt the decision but making the most of what seems to be an answer to prayer we expect to be able to appoint Ruth as Team Vicar after the summer. While Ruth completes her curacy she will be known as Team Vicar designate. 
I am also delighted to be able to write in this article that Mr Stuart Vince who is now living in the area and worshipping at Holy Trinity Church is soon to be licensed to exercise the ministry of a Reader within our Team. Many will already know Stuart at Holy Trinity and he will join Malcolm Robertson at All Saints and Chris Webb at St Nicholas who both exercise ministry across the Team. 
Please continue to pray for the guidance of the Holy Spirit for the work of your church in West Hereford.

The Ladies Night Out at All Saints Cafe recently was a great success.  About 20 ladies from across the Team enjoyed a lovely, relaxed and enjoyable evening with yummy food from the cafe and great company.
