How is God Calling You?

The Church of England is passionate and committed that all vocations should be recognised, regardless of gender, age, colour or background. This does not necessarily mean to ordained ministry. We have Licensed Lay Ministers (Readers), authorised lay workers (chalice assistants, servers, vergers, etc) and recognised lay workers (pastoral visitors).
If you feel that God might be calling you to ‘something’ but you’re not sure what, do please speak to Fr Tony, Mthr Samantha or Canon Anthony.

*** A Special Announcement ***

I am delighted to announce that The Revd Samantha Martell has been appointed by Bishop Christopher to the post of Priest-in-Charge of
the Parish of All Saints, Ryde.

It is wonderful that she will be staying within the Diocese of Portsmouth
but of course we will miss her ministry here.

The Bishop is looking forward to licensing her to this post at 4pm on Sunday, 26th January 2020 in the Church of All Saints, Ryde.

Please pray for her and her family, and for the parish of All Saints over the coming months.

Fr Tony
