How many scouts, cubs, beavers and explorers can you fit into St Andrew’s? The answer, apparently, is 432 plus 50 leaders and parents. The impressive march through the village led to a service attended by the Mayor of Elmbridge. You can see the photos on line at www.oxshott-scouts.org. Congratulations to Andrew Burns, his fellow leaders, and to Mary-Beth and Josey for such a great St George’s Day.
On Tuesday, 20 members of the PCC fitted into the Lady Chapel to listen, with bated breath, for the
Archdeacon and Area Dean’s judgment on our draft Parish Profile and Statement of Needs. A bit of
tweaking here and there is necessary, but each said that if only he had been younger, it would make him apply for the job like a shot. They are Christians. So we believe them.
It looks as if we will be in a position to advertise the position by the end of May. Please continue to pray for the new vicar that God has in mind for us.
