I would have finished this article for a bit earlier, but I have spent quite a bit of time waiting. My computer had the regular update and when things restarted it took some time for everything to settle and the computer to start behaving as it should. And whilst it may have been frustrating it fitted in well with my topic to write about for this month – the topic of waiting.
Old Felixstowe Parish Nursing service is going from strength to strength.
Helen received her Parish Nursing qualification in August and Ruth has achieved her Parish Nursing Assistant qualification too.
The service achieved full accreditation from Parish Nursing Ministries UK in September. Many thanks to the team for all their hard work in this.
On Sunday 8th October we sadly said farewell to Emma as she completed her curacy here in Old Felixstowe. Emma preached at all the services and asked us to think about what it means to go as Jesus commanded, even when we may not be moving geographically. We also had an opportunity to pray for Emma as a church community.
On 9th October it was a pleasure to welcome year six from Kingsfleet School to explore as part of their RE curriculum the question of how do Christians show their belief that Jesus is God incarnate?
Throughout the morning the children had an opportunity to investigate the symbols inside and outside the church. We then looked at a presentation showing the variety of ways we as a church seek to live out our faith in the light of the truth of Jesus being God incarnate.
Earlier this week Dr Josh Hunt, chaplain at Felixstowe School, came to share with us. It was great to hear about the work of chaplaincy in the school and the difference it makes. We heard about the exciting opportunity to expand chaplaincy into primary schools and were asked to pray for this venture.
