We welcome everyone to join us at one of our Deanery Lent Services held at Churches across the Deanery.  This year we are studying the Beatitudes, using the book Life Attitudes by Robert Warren and Sue Mayfield, copies of which are available for those who wish to continue the theme of the services into their various small groups. All services are on Tuesdays at 7.30pm:

April 1st,  Brailes
Living Lovingly, Matthew 5:7,8 Revd. Canon Martin Saxby, Healthy Churches Development Mentor

April 8th,  Pillerton
Living Differently, Matthew 5:7-9 Revd. Daniel Pulham, Minister of Stour Valley Baptist Church

April 15th Long Compton:
Eucharist of Holy Week, Ven. John Green, Archdeacon Pastor.

Our Ascension Day Service this year will be at Darlingscott, at 7.30pm on Thursday, May 29th: our preacher will be Revd. Andrew Coleby, Rector of Shipston.

An advance notice that Instant Choirs is back, on Saturday, May 17th, from 2.00 pm until 5.15pm (registration from 1.30 onwards) in St. Gregoryís Church, Tredington.  We are delighted that Julian Harris has completed and is teaching us the whole of the Shipston Mass (we used parts for the Archbishop), so the day will end with a short Eucharist using the Shipston Mass setting at 5.30pm, finishing at 6.15pm. 

Also in May, on  Tuesday, May 6th, in Tysoe Church at 7.30pm there will be a meeting for all Treasurers and Churchwardens, as well as Synod members, especially those who are newly elected, to answer questions, share experiences, and explain a bit about the workings of the Diocese.

Finally, new Deanery Synod Representatives will need to be elected at the yearís Annual Parochial Church Meetings. My thanks to everyone who has served so faithfully for the last three years.

Finally, some more thanks: across the Deanery we have paid practically every penny of our Parish Share this, which reflects all but a few percent of the total cost of ministry across the Deanery. Thank you to everyone whose generosity in giving reflected Godís generosity towards us!

May I wish you a time of great blessing this Easter.

Blessings,  Jill
