Happy New Year

Well this post comes with very best wishes for the New Year. Just where did those last 2 weeks go to? We enjoyed some wonderfully rich and meaningful services over Christmas but as usual that special moment just after midnight on Christmas morning as we light that central candle was perhaps the most special of all.

The first event of the new year was our new Desert Soul group on Wednesday 3rd January at Tewkesbury MC.  So many turned up that I was thinking of moving from the Guild room into the church and it is possible that we may well make that move anyway for the next one as I think it might just be a better space for this particular meeting. The next Desert Soul will be on Wednesday 17th  at 3.00pm.

As I write this I am just putting the finishing touches to the Covenant service which we will be holding throughout the section in January with the first one being at Tewkesbury MC tomorrow morning. We look forward to seeing you if you are able to come.

Other events in January include the week for Christian Unity which we will be celebrating on 28th  in both Hartpury at 3.00pm at the anglican church and in Tewkesbury  at 6.30 at Holy Trinity Church.  Hartpury Churches will also host a quiet day led by myself and Reverend John Longuet Higgins on Thursday 25th January between 10.00 and 3.00 at Rudford Church and ‘School Room’, if you would like to come let me know. Also as part of the week of Christian Unity programme I will be leading a group on 18th January at Tewkesbury MC at 12.00 where we will be working with the material produced for Christian unity week. I will publish the details of the full programme shortly.

So, there we are a quick catch up for now and a picture of the weather that saw many of our services cancelled in December and I understand we may have more to look forward in the coming weeks. Keep warm.  Blessings, Jayne
