The last of the St Gregory’s, Tredington, Autumn Course will be on:

Wednesday 3rd October ‘Malcolm Muggeridge: from atheist to something beautiful for God’ 

All are very welcome, between 7.30pm-9pm.   For more information call Chris Goble on 01608 682282

The next Deanery Synod will be on Tuesday, October 16th at 7.30 pm at Whichford Church.  The speaker will be Rev. Paul Simmonds, of Workcare, and we will be looking at the whole question of how best we can support those who are looking for work or setting up new businesses.

A  very big thank you to those who came, and those who helped, at the Deanery Garden Party: despite the rain (it just about managed to stop) and the Olympics, we had a lovely time, and about £200 was raised in support of other parts of the Diocese.

This is a tremendously busy time of year: Harvest is just about over, and Remembrance, Advent and Christmas are ahead.  As I write this, the reading for this evening is the account in Exodus of God leading the Israelites in safety through the Red Sea.  In the middle of it all, we read:

‘Do not be afraid: stand firm, and see the deliverance that the Lord will accomplish for you today. The Lord will fight for you, and you only have to keep still.’

In the middle of all that is happening right now, may we too learn to stand firm, to be still and to ‘know that I am God.’

As part of his visit to the Deanery, Bishop John will be leading a Deanery Service entitled ‘Healing in Three Dimensions’ referring to the healing power of God in Worshipping God, Making New Disciples and Transforming Communities on Tuesday, November 6th at 7.30 pm in ST. Edmund’s Church, Shipston. During the evening he will also be offering the ministry of healing and anointing.

We would love to welcome people from across the deanery to this special evening.

Every blessing,  Jill
