Staff at Drumglass
We recently bid a very fond farewell to Peter and Kim Jones as they moved to pastures new in the Diocese of Connor. Over the next year, we will not be replacing Peter with a new Curate, which obviously changes the workload in the Parish. We’re delighted to welcome as a new part-time Intern Deacon the Rev David McComb. David will be with us over two years as part of his ministerial training.
The Vestry is very pleased that Danny Graham, who has been with us for the last three years during his placement for his Youth Work Degree, will be remaining with us for the next year as Parish Youth Worker. Danny has done much significant work during his time with us.
Please remember the whole staff team in your prayers and continue to support them in their work.
2019 will be the Sesquicentenary of St Anne’s Church. The Select Vestry has decided that one of the ways we will mark this significant anniversary will be the renovation and extension of our suite of halls. This work will actually begin in the next few months with Phase One which is the re-roofing of the halls at a cost of £100,000.
Phase Two will provide lift access from the car park to the same level as the church as well as new meeting rooms, youth lounge, storage, toilets and new parish office. We are in the planning phase at the moment and will soon have cost estimates from the quantity surveyor.
The halls have been an incredible blessing and resource for Drumglass Parish since they were built in 1973. We want to continue to have high quality and accessible halls that will stand the test of time as a superb resource for our Church.
Rest assured you will be hearing much, much more about the project.
