In clearing out some of the filing cabinets it has been interesting to read about some of the wardens in the past. Fifty years ago one wrote a letter to the other suggesting they meet shortly, over a schooner of sherry, to discuss church business. Twenty-five years ago a parish auditor in his report on St Andrew’s remarked how refreshing it was to find churchwardens with a strong Christian faith! We’ve no idea how history will judge us but we can say that whenever we meet together we pray together for God’s guidance and blessing on our work.
We started this wardens’ blog in January last year by reporting that we were about to start the process of finding and appointing a new vicar. We asked for your prayers. It was quite a ride but with God’s grace we’ve got there. Thank you for praying for us during the last 17 months, but please don’t stop even though this is our last blog.
So, it’s goodnight from me and it’s goodnight from him. If you have been, thank you for following us.
