Deanery News

We were all deeply saddened to hear that Tony Adams passed to glory on October 2nd and is now, in Ele’s words, ‘safe in the arms of his beloved Saviour, no doubt rejoicing’!

He, with Ele alongside him, had the most wonderful ministry right up until his death: to visit him was to be truly blessed, and we thank God for the wonderful gift of Tony that Deanery enjoyed for many years.  As I write, the funeral has yet to happen, but Ele describes it as both a service of thanksgiving  for Tony’s life, and a celebration of God’s love for each one of us.  We pray that Ele and the family will know the full depth of that love in the weeks and months to come.

In Tredington, in the chancel of St. Gregory’s Church, Gordon Kuhrt is concluding series of Talks on the Bible with ‘How is the Bible to be used?’ on Wednesday, November 9th  at 7.30pm.

Finally, Gordon has written and published a little book about pain and disability in children and the big questions it poses, called ‘Life isn’t always easy’. Gordon hopes it will be of use to families, schools, youth groups and discussion groups.  Do contact him for further details:

Deanery News Update:

At the Deanery  Synod on 11th October, we discussed the proposed legislation which  would permit the ordination of women as bishops.  I am really grateful to all those who took part in the debate; this is for many a sensitive issue, and there was much graciousness and understanding of each other’s views.  I am particularly to Ann Gregory, who came down from Tile Hill in Coventry to take part.  The measure to allow women to become bishops, with provision for those who disagree, was passed, with 26 votes for and 5 against. This is something which could easily cause division, yet I sense a powerful yearning simply to get on with the work of the Gospel. Thank you to all those who took part.
