This week we welcomed back Rev. Ian Montgomery, and it is so lovely to have his wife Polly with him this time. Thank you to you both for spending this time with us and for providing a lovely service.
Let us pray for Ian as he prepares for next week's special Remembrance Day service. Don't forget 10am next Sunday 13th November. We will be joined by the Royal Legion and many other members of the public, including the British Ambassador, Anwar Choudhury. So let's be prepared to give them a great big welcome and show they what a wonderful community we are here at the Good Shepherd.
The Eucharist service will only be at 8am next week due to this event.
The Christmas Bazaar on 19th November is now less than 2 weeks away! And please please please we need your help!
Please bring items to Church clearly labelled for the bazaar and give magazine articles to Penny Marcés.
The closing date for the new rector search of our new English speaking congregation is coming up soon, 30th November.
If you are interested or know someone would be, please take a look at the profile on the 'meet our clergy page' and contact us as soon as possible.
We should all continue to pray for the chosen rector, even if we do not know who they are yet, and also the selection committee (Matthew Allen, Carla Dongo, Andrew King, Penny Marcés and Rosemary Underhay), who will be holding their first meeting this Friday.
And finally, it's still not too late to join the Christmas choir. Practice is on Sunday's at 11:45, please see John Matson.
