These words from the Letter to the Corinthians in the Bible are probably well known to a lot of people. They are often read at weddings, but they don’t just relate to married couples: Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. 1 Corinthians 13:4 If we all have these words in mind, in all our interaction with others, then we will make a difference, and most of the things that we despair of in the news would not be there if everyone did the same. Let’s do our bit to make it a better world. St Bridget’s Church Services Church APCM APCM or Annual Parochial Church Meeting is the church equivalent of an AGM. In the Church of England there is the traditional understanding that the Parish Church is what it says; a church that belongs to the whole parish. At the APCM anyone who lives in the parish (not just churchgoers) can attend and comment / ask questions about the church. Anyone on the church electoral role is allowed to vote for the election of church council members. The APCM for St Bridget’s will held in the Church on Sunday 16th May at 10.30am following the morning service. The Electoral Roll is being revised and anyone wishing to join it should contact Jenny Reynolds before May 2nd. St. Bridget’s Church is open daily for visitors and private prayer.
