Lent invites us to ‘Be still, and know that I am God’: a time to help us commit our lives to God and discover a living relationship with him. As part of this invitation, six of our churches are hosting Deanery Lent Services, on Wednesdays, at 7.30pm, to which all are invited, as we share the journey together.   We are using the Pilgrim Course Book 1 – Turning to Christ, and we hope that churches will be able to follow it in their house groups etc.  Copies are available from Jill, £5 each

4 March, Tysoe: Do you believe and trust in God the Father?
Revd Daniel Pulham, Minister of Stour Valley Baptist Church, Shipston

11 March, Long Compton: Do you believe and trust in his Son, Jesus Christ?
Revd Canon Kathryn Fleming, Canon Pastor of Coventry Cathedral

18 March, Brailes:  Do you believe in the Holy Spirit?
Revd Canon Andrew Dow

25 March, Tredington: Do you repent of your sins?
Revd Naomi Nixon, Ministerial Development Learning Advisor

1 April, Ettington (HC): Do you renounce evil?
Ven. John Green CB, Archdeacon Pastor

Everyone is welcome to join us, perhaps as part of their Lenten discipline.  This year we will continue to use our collections to sponsor Urban Hope, especially now that they have moved to new premises.

Forty days after Easter comes Ascension Day: Thursday, May 14th. Once again we meet together, for the Deanery Holy Communion Service,  7.30pm in Barcheston Church.  The Rector, Stuart Allen, will be our preacher.

For those who are Church Officers (i.e. Church Wardens, Treasurers, Secretaries etc) or members of Synod who want to understand a bit more about the workings of the Diocese and Deanery, there is a special Understanding the System Meeting on  Tuesday, April 21st, 7.30 pm at St. Mary’s Church, Tysoe. If you want to know who people are, how the Diocese is organised or how Parish Share works, this is your time to come and find out!

May Lent be a special time for all of us.

On the evening of Good Friday, April 3rd, we are having a service of readings, meditations and music for Good Friday at St. Mary’s Church, Tysoe, at 7.30pm. We are hoping that a small choir from across the villages will come together to sing that evening, much as we did at Christmas.  To that end we will be practicing, as we did before, in The Old Chapel, Oxhill, at 7.30pm on the Mondays in March i.e. March 2, 9, 16, 23 and 30 (although this last one may be in Tysoe).

A very warm invitation is extended to anyone who would like to join us. Even if you are likely to be away at Easter, if you love to sing sacred music you are very welcome to join us, just for the pleasure of singing. 

For any further information, please get in touch with Gaynor van Dijk (680349) or Jill Tucker (688193)
