Southern Health Trust: Visiting Update
The Southern Health Trust (Craigavon, South Tyrone & Daisy Hill Hospitals) have reviewed their Data Protection and Confidentiality Policies. Visiting clergy will no longer have access to patient lists. Eventually, this may also be the case in the Western Trust. If you or a relative are going into hospital, or have arrived in hospital, please let the Rector know.

It’s Your Move
The SU programme of RE Lessons to help P7s move from Primary School to Secondary School is here again! Please pray for Jeff Gawn and the teams working in Maguiresbridge PS (30th Apr, 7th & 14th May) and Brookeborough PS (6th, 13th, 19th May).

Easter Vestry: 27th April
Our Easter Vestry is today. Following our Morning Service we will share in a light lunch before beginning the meeting at 12.30pm. At the Easter Vestry, we hear reports from the previous year, reviewing God’s faithfulness and blessing since last we met as the General Vestry.
We also look to the future as we elect Churchwardens, Glebewardens and Select Vestry. This is also a triennial year, in which we elect parish representatives for a new three year period: 4 Parochial Nominators and 3 Diocesan Synod representatives with their respective supplementals. Parochial Nominators are the people from the parish who, along with diocesan representatives, form the Board of Nomination to appoint a new Rector if a vacancy should occur. Diocesan Synod representatives attend the yearly meeting of Synod on an evening in September, helping to keep the diocese on track for supporting and encouraging mission in the parishes.
The meeting is open to all, but only those on the Register of Vestrymen are entitled to vote. Please sign the list in the porch to assist with catering arrangements. Come along and play your part in the life of the church - no one will be under any pressure to stand for office.
