Hopefully everyone will now have heard the news that God is moving me on. On the 30th of April I will be licensed as Vicar of Holy Apostles Charlton Kings and Priest in Charge of St Michael’s Whaddon. My last service at CNC will be Easter Sunday.
We are extremely excited about this new role, but also really sad to be moving on from CNC. You have become family and we don’t expect to lose touch just because we have moved churches (though not moved house).
The next step for CNC will be pulling together a team to make sure that everything keeps happening whilst a new leader is appointed. On Monday the trustees appointed Fiona Brown to oversee this team. She will need everybody’s help and support.
Before CNC can advertise for a new leader you will all need to think through the kind of church you want to be going forward. There are some big questions that need to be asked and talked through about mission and vision, as well as the values that you want to underpin the life of the church. The clearer you can be about these the better the chance of attracting the right candidates for interview. We will organize some ways of gathering your opinions, and the AGM will no doubt be a big part of that, but why not be thinking about it now. Every blessing, Ash.

Humans vs Zombies at Emmanuel Church. This event will run twice, once for each age group. We have booked the entirety of Emmanuel church (incl. garden and car park). The aim is to find the hidden cure whilst fending off Zombies by using Nerf guns. A great survival game to bring friends along to. Please sign up by emailing School years 7-9: 9.03.2019, 7-9pm. School years 10-13: 16.03.2019, 7-9pm. We would welcome a voluntary donation of £2 to help cover ammunition costs. If anyone can lend any Nerf guns for the events, please let me know!
