On Sunday we welcome our diocesan bishop, Bishop Viv, to St Johns. Her visit comes the day before the funeral of the Queen so our service will reflect that. There are special prayers for this period of mourning, and we have incorporated them in the service this morning.

If you would like to sign the Church of England book of condolence online, it is available at https://www.churchofengland.org/remembering-her-majesty-queen or you can sign in person at the North Swindon library.

Bishop Viv is currently leading the diocese in the Transforming Church. Together initiative. We will hear more about this in the months to come, and can definitely say that the future is going to look different from the past.
