Deanery News

I trust that you have had the blessing of a wonderful summer, whatever you were doing.

For those who did not have any news in August, you might like to know that on July 23rd the Cathedral was full for the funeral of Bishop Colin: it was an wonderful and incredibly moving service, celebrating his life and ministry and, most of all, the Resurrection, but also full of compassion and love for Veronica and his family and the very many who worked closely with him. We thank God for his amazing and inspirational ministry, which has touched the lives of so many, and we pray for Veronica and their whole family as they mourn, as we all do, a much loved man.

Looking ahead, the next Deanery Synod is on Tuesday, October 22nd at 7.30 pm in Tysoe.  Greg Bartlem, whom many will remember as Diocesan Youth Officer, was ordained and has since grown a church from nothing among the deprived youngsters of the centre of Coventry.  The church is called Urban Hope, and Greg is coming back to tell us about it.

Finally, please do remember in your thoughts and prayers the farmer among us, for a bountiful harvest after the most difficult of years!

Every Blessing, Jill
