Dear [subscriber:firstname | default:subscriber],

It has been several months since we were last able to be together in person, and for some it has been well over a year. The Council has used some of this time to reflect on what our Church means to us and to think about the direction that we want to be heading in! Hopefully you will have seen our proposed Vision and Mission for St Nicholas in the newsletter a couple of weeks ago. To make it easier for you to share your views and ideas we have put together a short survey of 10 questions! Filling out the survey online is completely anonymous and takes 2 minutes to complete, you just need to click on the link below:

1 Corinthians 12 sums up why it is so important that we hear from you and listen to what you have to say:

'Just as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts form one body, so it is with Christ. For we were all baptized by one Spirit so as to form one body—whether Jews or Gentiles, slave or free—and we were all given the one Spirit to drink ... God has placed the parts in the body, every one of them, just as he wanted them to be.....so that there should be no division in the body, but that its parts should have equal concern for each other. If one part suffers, every part suffers with it; if one part is honoured, every part rejoices with it. Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.'

I hope that it will not be much longer now until we can all see each other, you are in my prayers,

Tuomas
