Deanery News

It was lovely to see so many of our local Churchwardens at the Archdeaconís Visitation in May, and also to be able to welcome so many from across the Diocese.  It was a wonderful evening of affirmation of Godís grace and calling; my grateful thanks to all those who helped, especially Sue and Rosemary who made tea and coffee for England!

We have another cause for celebration on June 6th, when Revd. John Horton is to be licensed by Bishop John in Alderminster Church as House-for-Duty minister in the Stourdene Benefice.  The service begins at 7.30pm.  You will be most welcome if you wish to come; if not please pray for John and Elizabeth as they move into Alderminster Rectory and begin their ministry in this Deanery.

Other events are happening:

Thursday, June 2nd, ASCENSION DAY, 7.30 p.m. Deanery Ascension Day Service (Eucharist) at Butlers Marston.  Preacher: Simon Lloyd, Diocesan Secretary.

Tuesday, June 7th, at 7.00 for 7.30 p.m. at Ilmington Village Hall, Deanery Synod with Roger Horsley and a team from the Church Army.  On this occasion we will begin with a Bring and Share Supper at 7.00 p.m., as we welcome those newly elected as Deanery Synod Representatives.

And also: ĎUnderstanding the Bibleí with Richard Cooke: Part 2 in St. Edmundís Church on Saturday June 18th between 9.30 and 3.30 p.m.  Please bring a packed lunch.

And finally: Music for a Summerís Evensong: on Saturday July 9th between 2.00 p.m. and 6.00 p.m. (or so!) we are having another Evensong Workshop, this time aimed particularly at the children, and teaching them the glories of Evensong.  We are going to Ilmington Church, where there is already a Childrenís Choir, and both the music and the timing are designed to appeal to all ages, older as well as younger.   As before, everyone is very welcome.  Bookings or inquiries  to me please.

And very finally: The Deanery Garden Party is happening again, on Saturday, August 13th between 3.00 p.m. and 5.00 p.m., at The Old House, Oxhill.  As ever, gifts of cakes would be much appreciated.
