NEWS FROM THE DIOCESE
Not long now until Thy Kingdom Come! We have some further updates on arrangements in this edition.
As a Diocese we will be marking #ThyKingdomCome (this is the hashtag to use across social media) with a series of mainly pre-recorded services at 4pm each day led by churches from around the Diocese … all available to watch on the Diocesan YouTube channel.
On May 12 (the eve of Ascension Day) there will be an All-Age Launch service available, with our Bishops and the Board of Education team. Further services will follow each day from Ascension Day itself (May 13) until Pentecost, May 23 at 4pm.
The Pentecost Sunday Service will be livestreamed from the Cathedral.
Meanwhile, from 13-23 May, the Being Witnesses team will be praying daily at 8am. Join them by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org for the Zoom link. Resources for all ages can also be found on the #TKC website.
There is another update on Living and Love and Faith (LLF) available on our dedicated LLF page on the Diocesan website. It includes further reminders of the LLF Taster Day held in March and encouragements for engaging with the LLF process going forward, including helpful links to information and resources; even a link to a feedback survey you can answer after completing the LLF course.
As part of the latest update Diocesan LLF Advocates Revd Canon Dr Rowena Pailing and Revd Jon Scamman report a number of people have commented on the time pressure of engaging with the LLF process; especially as we are all facing a period of major change as Covid restrictions are gradually lifting.
In light of this, Rowena and Jon are delighted to be able to report that the feedback period has been extended by the national church until the end of January 2022.
