Deanery News

Just in case you are reading this before the end of the month, may I remind you about our Instant Choirs for Evensong Workshop, followed by a Deanery Choral Evensong, on Sunday, January 30th at St. Georgeís Church, Brailes.  The Workshop, led by Julian Harris, will begin at 2.30 p.m.: Evensong, to which all are invited, will be at 6.30 p.m.  Details from Jill Tucker (01295 688193)

Our next Deanery Synod is on Tuesday, February 1st at 7.30 p.m. in St. Edmundís Church, Shipston.  We will be thinking about how best we can serve our young people and reach them with the Good News of Christ, especially in the light of threatened council cut backs to the youth service.  Our speakers will be Greg Bartlem, Diocesan Youth Officer, and Matt Brown, Joint Churches Youth Worker in Shipston.  This is something of deep concern to many of us, and we welcome any who share that concern.

An advance notice that our Deanery Lent Services will begin on Tuesday March 15th, at 7.30pm, at St. Gregoryís, Tredington, when the speaker will be Revd. Stephen Wookey, Rector of St. Davidís, Moreton-in-Marsh, and a familiar face to many.  The course this year will be based around Paula Gooderís book ĎA Way through the Wilderness: Exploring Godís help in times of crisisí, which explores the help that God offers to his people in the remarkable chapter of Isaiah 40.

An even more advance notice is that, in this year of the 400th anniversary of the King Jamesí Bible,  Revd. Richard Cooke will be leading two sessions on Understanding the Bible in St. Edmundís Church, Shipston, on Saturday, May 21st and Saturday June 19th, between 9.30 and 3.30.

Finally, Bishop Christopher is visiting Shipston Deanery on March 8th; in the evening everyone is warmly invited to an open meeting at 7.30 p.m. at Ettington Village Hall, at which he will be speaking on the subject 'What is the Church for?'

I look forward to meeting many of you at these various events.

Jill Tucker,  Rural Dean
