BENEFICE LENT LUNCHES

Wednesdays in Lent from 12:00 – 1:30pm in the Porch Room.

Commencing Wednesday 13th March, then on 20th, 27th, April 3rd and 10th, there’s an opportunity to have some homemade soup, bread rolls, cheese, baked potatoes and tea or coffee, as well as enjoy some good company. Donations will go towards our chosen Lent charities.

These are open to all the community, not just regulars at church, so you would be most welcome; please do come along. Why not suggest to a friend or neighbour that they come with you?


Wanted - New/Returning Bellringers

ChurchBellWe currently have 10 bell ringers who call you to worship each Sunday morning and practise on a Friday evening; we are now in a good position to take on some new ringers.

We can offer expert tuition—no experience or particular ability is required; just the fitness to be able to climb 44 stairs up to the ringing chamber (and be aged11+).
If you would like to find out more about what is involved, do come along when we are practising and have a look. We are a friendly bunch from all walks of life and with a variety of ringing experience—ranging from 2-50 years. The door at the bottom of the tower will be open and you can just come up.

If you wish to learn, you will receive 1-1 tuition to start with, so as to learn how to handle a bell, before moving on to ring with others. This process is likely to take a few weeks (or possibly months) depending on a range of factors. The expectation is then that you would regularly be available for practices and Sunday morning ringing—this is very much a team activity, so commitment is necessary.

To find out more, ring 884203 or come and find us on a practice night 7.30- 9pm

Parish Breakfast

Parish breakfasts resume on the first Sunday of each month, in the Porch Room, starting 7th January at 8.50am. Apart from the luxury of having your breakfast made for you, this is a great chance for the 8 o’clock congregation to meet up with those who attend the 10 o’clock service, enjoy a chat and get to know each other. On offer each month is delicious porridge, a range of cereals, bacon rolls, croissants, toast as well as tea, coffee, juice and much more.
All proceeds from the donations go to charity.

LENT GROUPS

Lent is the 40 day season in which we and the church are called to a special period of prayer, self-examination and teaching. This year the Lent groups will be studying the York Course for Lent, a 5 session discussion course titled, ‘Daring to see God now’, so, whether you are just starting to explore the Christian faith, or have been a follower of Jesus for years, this course is an essential guide for the journey.

There will be Lent groups led in both the afternoons and evenings on a variety of days commencing the week beginning Monday, 11th March 2019. Sign-up sheets will be at the back of the churches on noticeboards for individuals to choose which group they would like to attend.


Wednesday Cuppa 

Cuppa
 
Takes place every week from 2:30 until 4:00pm in the Porch Room. 
Church members attend as well as non-church goers and a warm welcome and good cake awaits you. The Wednesday walkers often join us as they finish ready for a sit down and a cuppa. It is a good social gathering of friends and all are welcome to come and chat and meet new people.

Do you enjoy Worship?
Do you enjoy Singing?

We are growing our choirs! Adult & Junior choirs sing a wide range of music not only for regular church services but also for weddings, funerals, carols in church, special events and even a film! Junior singers receive special training – past choristers are currently singing in the Gloucester Cathedral boys and girls choirs. Choral scholarships are available for over 16-year-olds still in full-time education. Adults singers commit only to what they are able to do. Details on the church website and on the Choirminch Facebook page. If you think you might enjoy singing, contact Julian Elloway for an informal chat

Daily Prayer

The Church has a tradition of daily prayer which embraces the three key elements of praise, intercession and engagement with scripture.

This page links to the C of E Daily Prayer website allowing us all to join in this daily pattern of prayer. When using the Offices individually read both the priest's and people's part.

The Offices are from the Book of Common Worship for today GMT.
