Most of us know Alastair Davies who was, until recently, head of the chaplaincy team at the RUH and has also led us in many Eucharists over the years, being part of the extended ministry team when I arrived. He is currently a patient in the RUH waiting for a transfer to the Bristol Heart Institute, where he will undergo a double heart bypass.

This has all happened very quickly. Whilst he is confident that the procedure is routine, and that the BHI is a wonderful place (as I can attest), he is still apprehensive. Alastair is much loved by St Mary’s, and is a wonderful priest and friend. He’s asked that we hold him in our prayers.

I hope to visit him in the next day or so.

Thanks for praying, will keep you posted.

All blessings, philip
