Deanery News

May sees Ascension Day, which we traditionally celebrate at one of our churches with the Eucharist for Ascension Day, beginning outside when weather permits.  This year we are going to Tidmington, just south of Shipston (at least it will be daylight when you try to find it!), and we are delighted that Anthony Wells will be the speaker. The date: Thursday, May 9th, 7.30pm at Tidmington Church.

The evening before, Wednesday May 8th at 7.30pm, Carol Clarke, who in the Diocesan Safeguarding Officer, will be leading a 2 hour session about Safeguarding at St. Edmundís.  This is for any in our churches who work with children or vulnerable adults, and anyone from across the Deanery would be most welcome.  If you wish to come, it would be helpful if you could either email or ring me.

Looking ahead, our next Deanery Synod will be on Tuesday, June 11th at 7.30 pm in Alderminster.  Alyson Spence, who works for the Alzheimer Society, is going to speak about caring for those with dementia, and we hope too that Kay Dyer will be with us to talk about the discussions taking place at General Synod.

May also, of course, sees Pentecost, on May 19th, when we pray that Godís unpredictable, unseen Spirit will come to us:

O Holy Spirit, Breath of God, blow in our lives this day:
clear out the cobwebs of closed minds and outworn ideas:
fill us with the freshness of your living love.
Cleanse and renew us that we might be
ready to be your people in the world.

From Beginning Prayers, by John Slow

Every blessing,
