As usual St Bart’s will present a series of 4 summer Organ Concerts given by Robin and Maureen Jackson.  They will be at 4pm (for an hour) on 18 Jun, 25 Jun, 2 Jul and 9 Jul; the first concert will also feature the choir.  Admission is free and there is a retiring collection in aid of Organ Fund.

Revd Andrew will be taking Extended Ministerial Developmental Leave from Saturday 10 June to Monday 11 September inclusive, returning to work on Tuesday 12 September.  During his absence our Team Vicar Revd Adam Beaumont will have overall responsibility for the Benefice, ably assisted by our Team Curate Revd Phill Harrison, retired clergy, Licensed Lay Ministers, Churchwardens and members of the five churches.  Adam will have particular pastoral responsibility for Lacock and Bowden Hill and Gastard alongside his half-time post as Deanery Missioner, and Phill will have pastoral responsibility for Corsham and Neston. This arrangement will obviously need to be flexible to allow for days off and periods of holiday over the summer.
