  1. 1. NEWSLETTER ST PAUL'S ANGLICAN CHURCH BEACONSFIELD LAST SUNDAY AFTER PENTECOST:CHRIST THE KING 22 NOVEMBER | 2020 PARISH UPDATES & NOTICES Dance of Universal Peace Is on this Sunday at 3pm in the Hall. Til 5pm. Advent Poetry Join John for a group exploration of poems, plays and music for the Advent season, to prepare us in heart and mind to greet the Incarnation. When: Wednesdays in December (2nd, 9th, 16th) Where: 7.30pm, Meeting Room. RSVP: John, Message from Rev Sebastiana Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, Next month marks a year I have been with you first as supply minister then as locum tenens. It has been an unusual time due to Covid and managing the pain of the past but it has been a privilege to serve here. I have enjoyed working closely with many of you and getting to know you all. As an Architect’s daughter with a particular love for old, beautiful churches it has been a delight to worship in St Paul’s. I have been going around bragging to colleagues that I get to preside in the prettiest church in the diocese (this has resulted in much chest-thumping at local clergy gatherings)! I had planned on staying with you until you found a new rector but I have been offered a position as Chaplain at Amana Living out of the blue and I think this would be a good move for me. My final day in the parish will be Christmas Day so we have plenty of time to say goodbye properly. My thanks for your love and goodwill, Sebastiana

Please remember that it is only through our social distance from other states that as Western Australians, we are able to enjoy a COVID-19 safe environment ... for now. However, we are all still required to do our bit to maintain our safety and that of our friends, by washing our hands, using hand sanitiser and maintaining our social distance. It is particularly important to remember these simple requests during our gatherings on Sunday mornings both in the church and during morning tea. It is our privilege and responsibility to keep each other safe. Pianist Needed St Paul's is looking for an occasional backup pianist to assist Cherie and Janice. If you are able to play for us sometimes could you please contact Cherie or Janice After the success of the last stall for Nepal, there will be another in the hall on Sunday December 6th When: After church Stall in the Hall Old Website Back Online Rosemary has resurrected the old website!

They would like you to invite the families in your life to join in the fun and celebrate Christmas the best way - at St Paul's! Research shows that 95% of Aussie kids today are not in church and that the most effective way to bring new people to church is for those of us who already come to invite them. Who could you invite? Your grandchildren? Your neighbours? Your godchildren? We would love to welcome some new families with kids from babies to top of primary school. Look out for the postcard invitations coming your way at church this Sunday. Last week was the final Elders' Morning Team of the year. Full credit to Pauline for making it happen every month, and to everybody who has helped out with set up, invitations, food, and so on throughout the year.
