Although we may be three quarters of the way through the year, August and September are for many a time of new beginnings. Schools, colleges and some universities have just begun their new academic year, which for some will be their first, for others their last, and for the majority, somewhere in between, but for all pupils and students a new year of study. And as we drive through and beyond the parish, one can’t help but notice that the new Spring crops are already being or about to be harvested.

So, whilst new beginnings are often commonly associated with Spring, there are just as many new beginnings happening around Autumn. And as we enter Autumn we will all, I am sure, have noticed the nights are getting darker earlier and the temperature has dropped a few degrees in recent weeks, and all our lawns and public parks are looking a lot greener thanks to the return of the rain, so everything has returned to normal weather wise.

And for the church, after the summer break, things are returning to normal with many of the groups and organisations that use the church beginning new sessions after the break. The start of this new session not only sees the return of such groups, it also provides opportunities for new beginnings in the life of the church. Look out for a new weekly informal worship service on a Tuesday morning starting in September, as well as a new monthly bible study, also starting in September, and if there is a particular topic you would like us to look at in the bible then please let me know. I also look forward in the near future to sharing our first harvest service and remembrance service with you.

We also have our Local Church Review meeting which has been confirmed for the evening of Wednesday 10th October, please put that date in your diary as it would be great to see as many of you come along to that as possible.

With all this going on, Autumn is sure to be a busy season for many reasons for the church and it’s up to all of us to help out where we can to ensure that we keep doing what we are doing and to keep doing it well, and that is to share the good news of Jesus Christ with our friends and neighbours throughout our parish.
