Deanery News

I trust Christmas was a wonderful celebration of our Saviourís birth for everyone.

The next Deanery Synod will be on Tuesday, 31st January at 7.30 pm in St. Edmundís Church, Shipston.  We shall be welcoming one of the Cathedral Canons, and hearing about the work of Coventry Cathedral, and the events surrounding its Golden Jubilee in May Ė the 50th Anniversary of the consecration of the new Cathedral.

Thank you:

During the last Lent services  we collected money to help buy Bishop Cleophas in Matabeleland a new car to cope with the rough terrain there.  The money has now reached him, and Elisabeth Ashworth received this letter of thanks from him:

Grace, mercy and peace from God our Father be with you: like the great Apostle, I greet you with these words, hoping to find you well in Shipston in Warwickshire. 

On behalf of the Standing Committee, Clergy and all of us in and around Matabeleland, I write this letter to express our greatest gratitude to you all for the gift of $2,397.00 towards transport.

Your donation is indeed most appreciated.  We feel so warmly cared for, prayed for and supported.  The clergy and laity are amazed and yet so touched profoundly and highly motivated by your generosity of spirit.  By this contribution some of our burdens are lightened. 

Once again thank you so very much.

Yours in his Vineyard

+Cleophas Matabeleland.

May our Lord walk with you as you walk into his New Year.

Every blessing,

Jill
