It’s all new at Canford Magna Parish Church
THERE’S a sense of a new wave sweeping through Canford Magna Parish Church.
In July, a new curate, Stephen Partridge arrived in the parish. Stephen studied at St John’s College Nottingham and moved down to live in Merley with his wife Carrie, and their four sons, Ben, Joe, Luke and Zac. Rector and Wimborne’s Rural Dean, Canon Chris Tebbutt, commented: “It is very good to have a clergy colleague of Stephen’s calibre on the staff here at Canford. We are also pleased to welcome Carrie and the boys as part of our church fellowship. They come at a defining time for Canford as we try out a new pattern of worship at the Parish Church.”
On Sunday 22nd September the Parish Church begins a new pattern of Sunday services. In addition to the café style “Breakfast@9” service in the Canford Magna Centre, close to the church, two new services will be held in the 1,000 year old Parish Church. At 9am the church is introducing a service of Holy Communion drawing its strengths from the characteristics of Common Worship liturgy and the traditional parish church atmosphere. The existing 10.30am service will change to 10.45am - which used to be the time many years ago - and it will be of a more contemporary style. There will be the opportunity for parishioners from the two services to mix around 10.30am and share refreshments and fellowship together.
All this takes place during a time when the daughter church, The Lantern, was re-opened after a major refurbishment on Sunday 8th September by the Bishop of Sherborne, the Rt Rev Graham Kings. In addition, a new Chaplain has arrived at Canford School - the Rev Phil Jack - who was licensed at the Parish Church this week.
