Church Councils – could YOU serve?

The Church Councils are the ‘governing bodies’ of the church.  Because Saint Paul’s is part of a team parish (working with Christ the King and Saint Michael’s in the Parish of Tettenhall Regis), we have two church councils:

The Parochial Church Council (PCC) has the legal responsibility for the parish, including worship patterns, wedding, funeral and baptism policy, appointment of ministers and matters of finance, buildings etc.

The District Church Council (DCC) makes decisions on matters specifically relating to Saint Paul’s.  The DCC has representatives on the PCC… or, to put it another way, if you serve on PCC you will also serve on the DCC of your church.

Could you serve on the DCC or PCC? Each year, new members are elected at the annual meeting.  Usually, you serve for three years.  If you would like to consider becoming a member of one of our church councils, please speak to Jim or to the DCC secretary, Corrina Thacker.

Elections will be held this Sunday, 22nd April, at the District Church Meeting after the 10:30am service.

Prayer for the week

This week the Wednesday morning group looked at “inspiration”.  Michael May offers this prayer…

Father we know that you are caring for us today, as you will care for us tomorrow and everyday.
You either shield us from suffering or you give us the strength to face our suffering.
We should put aside our anxious thoughts and have the faith to say that you, Lord, are my strength and shield.
We have the faith of St. Paul to inspire us, the trust of St. John to inspire us, and the love of Jesus to inspire us.
Thank you, Lord, for hearing our prayer.
Amen

Preparing for Easter Morning

If you would like to make flags, streamers, etc., for use in our Easter Morning worship, there will be materials available in the Oasis on the morning of Saturday 7th April – help yourself and have fun!

Also, do bring flowers to church on Easter morning – we will transform the sorrowful Lent cross into a joyful Easter cross, reflecting the joy of the Resurrection.
