Deanery News

Firstly, a very big thank you to all those who took part in the Ride and Stride on September 13th.  We were blessed with a glorious day, and the placed was abuzz with both riders and striders all day long.  Thank you so much to all those who opened their churches, provided hospitality, and to those who walked or rode around in support of our historic churches.

Secondly, Bishop John will be in Ettington Church on October 4th at 6.00pm for this year’s Deanery Confirmation Service, when a number of folk from around the Deanery will be affirming their commitment to God. It is a joyful moment when we rejoice at what God has done for us in Christ: any who would like to join us to support the candidates will be very welcome.

Thirdly, we look forward to the Deanery Synod on October 28th. PLEASE NOTE, THIS IS A CHANGE OF DATE. We shall be meeting at 7.30 pm at Cherington Church, and welcoming Rev. Canon Edward Pogmore as our speaker, on ‘What is a Parish For?’

Until his recent retirement, Edward led the team of Chaplains at the George Eliot Hospital in Nuneaton; he is passionate that in our churches we should both preach the gospel and heal the sick, and so comes to talk about the wholeness of healthcare and the healing ministry in the parish context.  All are welcome to come, especially if you have an interest in healing ministry.

Finally, as we celebrate this Harvest, a prayer from Christian Aid:

The earth is fruitful
may we be generous.
The earth is fragile
may we be gentle.
The earth is fractured
may we be just.
Creating God,
harvest in us joy and generosity
as we together share in thanks and giving.  Amen.

Every blessing,  Jill
