Vicarage Notes


Our thanks to all who decorated the church for Easter this year – it’s transformed after the solemnity of Lent. Thanks also to the team involved making the Carice Singers concert such a success. There was a lot of hard work and generous hospitality behind the scenes – it is much appreciated!

The 40 days of Easter

People generally remember that Lent has 40 days – but forget that time is mirrored in the Easter weeks, which conclude with the celebration of Ascension. This year, the Deanery service is at little Darlingscott Church, whose future was questioned some years back, but with my support as R.D. in the 90s, it’s still a going concern.

Restoration Project

The work is continuing apace and I’m sure folk have stopped to have a look at what’s going on. The Croft site manager, Stuart, is a very helpful chap. Everyone is invited to St.Lawrence’s on Sat.May 17th at 10.30am for an open morning about the project. Anne Hale will kindly be giving a short talk about the history of the church – coffee will then be available, and I will be arranging for a display of the architects drawings and we’ll be looking around the building to see where the money has been spent. All very informal - come for as long as you wish!

Vicar of Bray, Sir

I occasionally have that said to me as Bray sounds similar to Brailes - nothing exotic about either, of course! So don't forget about the invitation to hear about the "Vicar of Baghdad" on May 6th in the Old Chapel...

Best wishes and God bless,
