Six weeks have passed since we said goodbye to Jeremy and Alexandra. December was all about Christmas and now, well into the New Year, we are ready to start to discover God’s choice for the next vicar of Oxshott. Ron, as Vice Chair of the PCC, has been asking all church attenders this month (including children) to fill in a simple diocesan questionnaire that will help us establish the St Andrew’s profile. If you and your family haven’t done it yet, please do so.
Norman and I will meet with the Archdeacon, Paul and Rural Dean, Alan next Thursday [28th] and will report back to the PCC in the evening. The PCC will also begin to fashion part of Parish Profile this week. If you can, please join us for 30 minutes of prayer at 7.25pm before the PCC meet at 8pm. We need your prayers as we think of who will best represent the church in the appointment process.
There will be two funerals held in St Andrew’s (on the 25th and 27th) and on Sunday January 24 David Crouch will be preaching on a new look at the Bible. Please keep St Andrews in your prayers!
