I live in Chandler’s Ford and was the Youth Minister in the Parish there for just over 3 years. I am really excited about this new role and all that God has for us as a Diocese. I look forward to meeting lots of you and getting to know you as I support you in your ministry to the amazing young people across this Diocese. If you need to contact me you can email me: paul.smith@winchester.anglican.org or call me on: 07841517519.

Across October new, FREE intergenerational lectionary-based resources will be provided for each week. Suitable for use whether you are following the lectionary or not, these resources from the VCCE will include intergenerational music, prayer and Bible engagement ideas. These ideas may be used wherever liturgically appropriate in a service, including as part of an Early Word/ Children’s Talk time.

As always, your feedback on these resources will be gratefully received. Please e-mail your comments to chris.barnett@ctm.uca.edu.au.
