Up Coming Events

Sunday 27 July:  AWA Sunday - to pray for the ‘Anglican Women

enthusiasm throughout the Diocese, to witness the Gospel of our 

Lord Jesus Christ among women. 


Tuesday 29 July:  7.30-9.00pm.  Spirituality in the Pub at the 

Oxford Hotel, 170 William Street.  The SIP committee have invited

we come from and where do we go to from here?’

Crespigny, author of The People Smuggler.  Come along and hear 

Robin talk about her book and the reality of fleeing persecution to 

find safety.  Venue:  Building 1292, Room 223 Charles Sturt

No matter what adversities we face we are called to love one 

another, grow together in faith, serve and disciple others.  This is 

our Vision as a parish community. 


Our challenge of assisting the diocese financially in order to help 

with legal costs is a real one and the Dean, Wardens and Treasurer 

will take a proposal to Parish Council for discussion this next week.  

We feel sure that we will be able to meet the request without 

jeopardising or interfering with our cathedral ministry, and we would 

hope that you the parish will support us.  Once details have been 

worked out there will be a parish meeting on Sunday 10 August at 

11.15 am.  Until then, I would ask for your prayers and that you not 

be anxious about the outcome.  We have overcome a great deal 

already and we will continue to move forward with God’s blessing 

upon us. 


Last Sunday, Choral Evensong was a wonderful event with a full 

Cathedral to hear our choir at its very best before leaving for the 

UK.  As Choir Director and Organist, Michael Deasey is to be 

congratulated on bringing the Choir to such a high standard and I 

am sure those who hear them sing in Exeter and Lichfield 

Cathedrals will embrace them warmly. 


On Friday we farewelled our dear friend, Gareth Bullock, in a 

moving and musical service here in the Cathedral.  It is always a 

great loss for any parish to lose one of its members and we are 

grateful for the gifts of leadership (Parish Council), and music 

(10.00am service) Gareth contributed to our community.  We hold 

in prayer his wife Sandy, son James and Angharad, Bethan and 

Kerrie Drew as they come to terms with his quite sudden departure 

from this earthly life.  Gareth was an incredible witness to his faith 

to those of us who shared in his last days.  May he rest in peace 

and rise in glory.
