It is good to give thanks to the Lord, for his love
endures for ever. Ps 136:1

We are sorry to say farewell to Rev Michelle Shin at
the service on 24 June after her year with us as
minister. We have really appreciated her friendly
and thoughtful approach and benefited especially
from all her visiting and from the Advent and
Lenten studies she organised.
Our thoughts and prayers are with her for a speedy
and full recovery from her recent accident and we
trust that the sabbatical she has been looking
forward to will be even better than she expects!
The Rev Warren Deason will be our Interim
Moderator here at St Aidans for the next few
months.
Many of us already know Warren from his years as
minister at the Albany Presbyterian Church and will
want to give him a warm welcome.
The Executive Team met with Warren to make some
plans for services etc after Michelle leaves. He will
conduct Communion services on the fourth Sunday
of each month until October, and Cafe Church Team
will look after Cafe Church on the third Sunday.
Pulpit supply for the other Sundays will be organised.
A lot falls on the Executive Team when we have no
regular minister and they will welcome your support.
Thinking outside the box anyone? Ed

One more step along the world I go
From the old things to the new…
Keep me travelling along with you.
