New Team Vicar
Our new Team Vicar, Rev Mike Burke was licensed at a ceremony in St. John's on 18th August, performed by the Archdeacon of Bath, the Venerable Andy Piggot and is now officially a part of the team. We are delighted to have him on board.
Celebration for the beginning of Revd Mike Burke’s new ministry Thursday 8th October at 7.30pm in St John’s led by the new Bishop of Taunton, (Bishop Ruth Worsley). The service marks two beginnings: a new beginning for Mike & Jacky in Keynsham, and also a new beginning for ourselves as a parish being led further into mission. The service will reflect this, so please come and join the celebration. The evening will conclude with a cup of tea and cake.
A message from our Tower Captain about a planned Bell Peal in November
As reported in last month’s Contact, on Sunday, 15th November a band of bell-ringers from Bristol are coming to St John’s. They will be attempting a peal of 5,024 changes of Bristol Surprise Major which – if successful – will take them a little over three hours.
The bells will start ringing shortly after 1:30pm, and should finish by approximately 5pm. Do come along and listen if you’re in Keynsham as this promises to be a quality performance by some high-calibre ringers.
Martin Pearson, Tower Captain
