Deanery News

Dear Friends,

Four things:

Firstly, the Archbishop is coming and all members of our churches are invited: on Pentecost Sunday, May 27th , Dr. Rowan Williams will be preaching and Bishop Christopher presiding,  at a special Deanery Pentecost at 9.30 am in St. Gregory’s Church, Tredington. We need everyone to help!

If you wish to sing in the united choir, please come to rehearsals on:
Saturday, May 5th, 2-5 pm, Tredington Church
Thursday, May 10th, 7.30pm, Tredington Church
Wednesday, May 16th, 7.30pm, Tredington Church
Friday, May 25th, 7.30pm, Tredington Church.

Other members of the congregation who would like to find out about the music are invited to come to this rehearsal.

If you are able to help as a steward/car park attendant, please would you come to a run through of the service (at which Bishop Christopher will be present) on:

Monday, May 14th at 7.30 pm, Tredington Church

If you can help with cakes/refreshments, please let me know – we are a Deanery of cake makers, and the more cakes the better!

Secondly, thank you so much to all those who have welcomed members of the Deanery to the Deanery Lent services, and those who welcomed the Bishop and other pilgrims as they made their way across the Centenary Way. It has been really good to enjoy each other’s friendship and fellowship in this way.

Thirdly, the Deanery Service for Ascension Day will take place on Thursday, May 17th at 7.30 pm in Whitchurch Church –beginning outside if the weather permits.  As it is Christian Aid Week, Revd. John Horton from Alderminster will be speaking about the church overseas and the sort of relief and development work that Christian Aid funds.

Finally, the date of the next Deanery Synod has had to be changed: it will now take place on Tuesday, July 17th, at 7.30 pm in Whatcote Church.

Wishing you all the joy of our risen Lord,

Jill Tucker.  01295 688193, revjill.tucker@tiscali.co.uk
