Just a short note about Rob’s funeral.
It would seem that many, many people are away on holiday that week but we suspect that there will still be considerable numbers at the funeral, which is great. We want to send Rob out in style!
To ensure that we can accommodate everyone and to help with catering, we are trying to get a “guesstimate” on numbers who will attend.
So, if you will be coming to the funeral please indicate by liking this post by Thursday 10th August. (Please only let us know once - if you have indicated on the AYF page, Rob's Facebook or the info chain that will be fine.)

Following the news of Rob's death we will be opening Aldridge Parish Church between 10am and 1pm tomorrow - SATURDAY. This will be an opportunity for anyone who wishes to come to chat and to pray as well as write a short tribute, testimony or thanksgiving about Rob in some books that are to be provided.
Coffee will be available throughout. Tears, laughter and Christian hope will be in plentiful supply.
We will gather as family and honour a man we and so many have come to know and love. He has touched so many lives in ways that cross generations.
Our Sunday Services will be adjusted slightly but Rob would want us to worship the Lord and proclaim his love. On Sunday evening there will be opportunity for a few people to speak for 60 seconds each (adapted from a regular AYF tradition). It will be a time of testimony about how The Lord has touched your life through Rob.
If you would like to say a few words at that Evening Service please speak to John Coyne in advance. email@example.com
Aldridge Parish Church added 91 new photos to the album Ordination Service of Revd Kate Watson. — at Lichfield Cathedral02/07/2017 at 3:48pm
On Sunday 2nd July 2017, our very own Kate Watson was Ordained a Deacon in the Church of England. Revd Kate is to be a curate in Tipton and we wish her God's richest blessing in her's, & husband Andy's new ministry life together. It seemed rather appropriate to have a lovely meal reception after the service in Lichfield, in our Aldridge Church Centre that Kate had so much involvement in, with it's design construction and use. A really special day.
