On February 20th we celebrated the licensing of the Reverend Canon Nick Buck as Priest in Charge of the benefices of Branston and Metheringham. The Reverend Sister Liz CSF was also licensed as Assistant Curate of the six parishes (Branston, Potterhanworth, Nocton, Metheringham, Blankney and Dunston). Sister Maureen and Sister Judith were commissioned for ministry in the deanery. This well attended service was held at St. Peter's Dunston. It was a truly joyful and welcoming service. We all continued to enjoy the evening at the Methodist chapel, with tasty refreshments and lots of chat.
The restoration work is progressing well. Work on the north side of the nave roof is nearly complete. Smaller repairs, eg to the pulpit and lamps are also being addressed. It is hoped that most of the work will be finished by the end of March. We are planning to be in the church cleaning on Saturday March 31st and Sunday April 1st starting at 2.00 pm. It is extremely likely that the builders will be back working on the church on Monday morning. So if you are able to help at all please come along. We will need lots of helpers. Any queries please phone - Ruth Tel. 322285 or Nicholas Tel. 322930. Please bring any cleaning equipment eg dustpan and brushes, dusters, buckets etc.
We are hoping to celebrate Easter in our beautifully restored church on Sunday April 8th at 9.30 am. We look forward to seeing you there.
