Deanery News

Already the year is underway, and we find the first Deanery Synod of the year and the Lent Services upon us.  This is a year of change for many in the Deanery, and I pray that you will be able to ‘Be still and know that I am God’  as the year unfolds.   Jill

Deanery Synod

The next Deanery Synod is on Tuesday, February 2nd, at 7.30pm at St. Edmund’s Church, Shipston.  In a change of programme, our speakers will be Karen Gaymond and Roseann Boyce, who are Diocesan President and Area Manager respectively of The Children’s Society – very appropriately for Candlemas and Christingles! Both Karen and the work of the Children’s Society are, of course, well known to many of us, so we really look forward to having them with us. All are very welcome to come and meet them - you don’t have to be a member of Synod.

Deanery Lent Services.

Easter is early this year: Easter Day being March 27th, and Ash Wednesday February 10th: so our series of Lent Services begins on Tuesday, 16th February.  This year we are aiming to address some of the difficult questions of our faith, and we are encouraging our speakers to allow time for questions or discussion.  You will see that we are reverting to Tuesdays, always at 7.30pm.  As ever, each service will be followed by coffee etc: we very much look forward to seeing you there.
