A Message from the Minister’s Messy Desk
I have always felt a bit of excitement around Palm Sunday. Perhaps it is because it
feels like the ending of one chapter and the beginning of another. Perhaps it is because it is
the start to the holiest of weeks. But truthfully I think it is because I love parades! As the
vaccine roll out continues and we hear of gentle changes to public health orders I am
cautiously optimistic,which means that this Palm Sunday has a little added excitement. I
pray that you will find joy and peace this coming week but also much hope! I would
encourage you to participate in the upcoming shared services to help make space for hope.
Please note that on Sundays we are returning to our “usual pattern” and our Palm Sunday
and Easter services will be live streamed on YouTube at 10:30am.
On Thursday at 10:30am anyone interested is invited to a time of “Virtual Coffee Hour”
over Zoom. There is no agenda, simply a chance to catch up and chat! This even is hosted
by Marion Lade and Erica Farrell and you can connect:
