JULY 2017
Reverend Tim Fernyhough is our new Rector!
The Churchwardens of the Lambfold Benefice are very pleased to announce that we have a new Rector! He is Reverend Tim Fernyhough and he is coming to us from Radley College in Oxfordshire, where he holds the position of Under Head of Theology and Sub-Chaplain. He is also a member of the wider ministry team of the Benefice of Radley, Sunningwell and Kennington.
He will be installed as Rector of the Lambfold Benefice on Saturday 2nd September, at 6.30pm at St Mary's Church, Blakesley. All Parishoners are invited to attend this service to welcome him to his ministry in our Benefice.

Meanwhile, whilst the Benefice is in Interregnum, please contact your Churchwarden for information about churches, services, weddings, funerals and baptisms etc (see Benefice contacts page for details).


The Readers Write:
Lies, damn lies and statistics - and opinion polls! Opinion polls which set out to give ‘accurate' information on a particular subject. Perhaps not so accurate when the results of the poll can vary according to who is asking the questions, how the questions are phrased and who is being questioned.
A poll on Palm Sunday, conducted on behalf of the BBC, found that 23 per cent of people who called themselves Christians do not believe, at all, in the Resurrection of Christ. And amongst those Christians who regularly go to church, 57 per cent believe completely in the Resurrection, and five per cent do not believe in it at all. Presumably the rest, the 38 percent, are the ‘don't knows' - which is a trifle worrying.
If there was no Resurrection, then there was no Ascension. And if there was no Ascension then there was no day of Pentecost; and the empowerment of the disciples to ‘go and make disciples of all nations' is Fake News.
Well, Eastertide is now almost over for another year. But it is never too late to raise a shout:-
"Alleluia! Christ is risen!
He is risen indeed.

Yours in Christ
