A New Pastoral Course – The Big Picture
We are excited to let you know about this new course which is starting 10 January 2022. The course will cover 12 engaging sessions taking us through Salvation History, starting at the beginning with God the Creator right through to the End Times, with the Second Coming of Christ. The course is inspiring and enjoyable and suitable for those new to Scripture as well as those with a deeper knowledge of the Bible. The Big Picture is not simply an academic journey through Scripture but a time of helping us make God’s Word alive and relevant to our daily lives. If you would like a little taster and get a feel for the Big Picture why not watch the trailer below for more details and if you wish to join please reach out to Joan Kent – email@example.com
During last week a scam email supposedly from Fr Paul landed in email inboxes. The email asked you to purchase amazon vouchers for Father and to email the codes to him. If you look carefully you will notice that the email address is from gmail, but this isn’t always easy to see.
Father Paul will never email you asking for money or vouchers and his email address ends in @portsmouthdiocese.org.uk or sacredhearthook.org.
If you are in any doubt that the email you have received is from Father Paul please contact the Parish Office and we can confirm whether it is or isn’t. These scammers are getting very clever and it is unfortunately very easy to fall for one of the scams.
