Trinity Sunday – 26 May

We are delighted to welcome back Fr Bosco & Helen Peters to St Barnabas, and not just because Bosco is preaching on one of the most challenging Sundays of our church calendar! It’s always good to welcome back a former curate, and to hear what he’s experienced of God the Trinity over the years.

Farewells This week we have farewelled from St Barnabas two long-standing and long-lived parishioners, Faye Norman, aged 97 and Meth Mabin, aged 106. Meth was for many years a member of our team of Bankers, We send our love and sympathy to Margaret and their family.

Faye was known and beloved by many of us as a musician who shared her talents with Medbury School and St Barnabas over many years, and was a member of AAW, and latterly enjoyed Eldercare, 90+ afternoon tea, and Home Communion at Russley. Our love to all the Norman family.
