Comments from the Ministry Team.

  • Overall, we enjoyed the challenge, tough it was demanding and time consuming.
  • Trying to have more than four weeks is difficult, because of the service patterns with the two churches.
  • The links to the website and notice sheet was clearly a good move, as were the questions linked to the sermons.
  • Choosing the next topic will be interesting, because of the suggestions.
  • The timing of a series is surprisingly limited. Some have suggested Advent, but we tried that some time ago, with only limited success because of the other factors related to Advent.
  • The long period between Pentecost and Advent is possible, but summer holidays and family or grandchildren committments have a significant impact which restricts the options.
  • Lent also seems to be a good time.
  • However, much will depend on the new incumbent and when they take up the post.

Thank you for your comments.
