Brede news

Sad Sad News: Three people have passed away in the last few weeks they are Peter Minshull who was a very regular worshiper at St George’s and will be missed by all the congregation and his friends. Derek Sevier who many will know as he has done many jobs around the church inside and out at St George’s, he was a garden and property maintenance man and I am sure many of you would have used his services and along with his family and friends will miss him very much. His funeral is Friday 8 March. I do not know the time. Lastly Richard Cullinan from Beckley many will have known this gentleman who will be missed by his family and friends the funeral is Thurs 14 March again, I am sorry, I do not know the time. Please add these gentlemen to your prayers and pray for all of them, their families and all known to them.

Sunshine: Where has it gone? We have been fortunate enough to have had a holiday in the sun and have just returned to wet and windy conditions. I do hope the saying ‘In like a lion out like a lamb’, will apply and that in two weeks time we will be basking in the sun here. I do feel so sorry for the plants especially the daffodils who nod their heads gracefully in a soft breeze but in this ferocious wind they no sooner begin to nod in one direction when their little heads are turned about. I hope they are not destroyed.
