Please continue your prayers for those affected by the storms yesterday and for Tynings Lane Church as they begin to assess the situation following the flooding. Groups and activities cancelled as a result this week.
Unfortunately the heavy rain has caused significant flooding at the church and number 4. This means all groups and services are suspended till further notice. Keep watching for updates for alternative venues. Thank you to everyone who helped tonight
We are pleased to announce that the new Rector of Aldridge will be the Rev Steve Doel, currently Vicar of St John's, Walmley in Sutton Coldfield. Steve is married to Jenny and they have four children, aged from 10-21.
The announcement was made this morning at the Parish church, St Thomas', Tynings Lane and in Steve's own parish of Walmley. The parish reps would like to thank all those who prayed, fasted and supported them in anyway particularly on the day of the interview. All those interviewing feel Steve is the right person to lead us into the future and we look forward to Steve and his family joining us.
The wardens express particular thanks to the reps and those who helped with the interview process, preparing the profile & advert and on the interview day. They also wish to thank the congregation for all their prayer on the day and during the vacancy. Thanks be to God for answered prayer. As a church we can now continue to work and pray together during the remaining months, until and beyond when Steve starts. We do not yet have a date for moving in and licensing but please pray for Steve and his family as they prepare to make this move.
Sincere apologies to all of you who have not received the notice sheet for this week.
While attempting to implement some necessary changes in advance of the GDPR deadline, I seem to have broken MailChimp’s ability to send emails on our behalf.
This has now been remedied, and emails should soon be arriving. You may receive multiple copies now, depending on how your mail server handles these kinds of issue. I apologise if you do.
However, if you usually receive these and do not get it within the next hour or so, please do send me an email on ICT@aldridgeparish.org.uk, or drop me a text on 07378 305829, and I will look into it further.
