Our bumper Summer issue of the Gazette is full of news and features that will keep you reading throughout July and August.
Rev’d Stephen Farrell gives us an entertaining insight into the perils, and positives of a parson’s summer, including the bonuses of a busman’s holiday at a seaside parish, and the relief that older churches can provide during a heatwave- if only for the congregation, and not the fully robed pastor.
Rev’d Chris West scrutinises ministry to children, and the ways in which doing so, triggers investigation of ministry itself.
Meanwhile, Karen Bushby meets Cheryl Graham to hear the moving story of her battle with breast cancer and her participation in a powerful photographic exhibition to raise awareness of secondary breast cancer.
Diocesan Focus this month comes from the new diocese of Tuam, Limerick and Killaloe, a diocese which has seen much change over the last year in particular.
We have plenty of inspiration for your Summer BBQ on our Food Pages. All this, and much more, in your July/ August Gazette.
