Vicar's Musings for Sunday in the Octave of St Peter
1 July, 2018
We are blessed to have Bishop Alison Taylor with us today, as Presiding Bishop and Preacher, for our Sunday Patronal Festival celebrations. Bishop Alison was Vicar of St John's Camberwell, and Archdeacon of Kew, prior to being consecrated Bishop of the Southern Region in the Diocese of Brisbane. At the end of last year Bishop Alison returned to Melbourne to take up doctoral studies with the University of Divinity. On leaving the Diocese of Brisbane Bishop Alison wrote: "I was the first woman to be appointed as a bishop in Queensland, but I am confident that I will not be the last ....
Please note that this coming Friday 6th July, at 7pm, we will be blessed with another visit from Bishop Rob Gillion who was our Presiding Bishop and Preacher at last year's Patronal Festival. Bishop Rob and Janine are about to return to the UK after serving in the Diocese of the Riverina, but they have kindly agreed to pay us one more visit at The Hill before they go. This will be a rather special visit; in fact it will be a final Australian performance of "The Visit"! It is a hilarious and poignant one-man play based on a short story by British author Adrian Plass. Book your seat now (www.trybooking. com/VNYQ) or just let us know you are coming through the Parish Office, then turn up and get your tickets at the door; and do bring along all your family and friends for mulled wine, Christmas mince pies, and lots of fun!
The Rev'd Dr Hugh Kempster
