Open the Book


On Wednesday this week Apperley celebrated 10 years of  ecumenical teamwork between the Methodist and Anglican Church for Open the Book. We celebrated with the team performing the story of Jesus being taken up into heaven, which all the children from Deerhurst and Apperley primary school attended. As this was the last session of open the book before the end of term, we wished the year 6 children well as they prepare to move on to senior school. After singing happy birthday to the team the children went back to their classes and the team enjoyed a slice of birthday cake.



I led the united service in this beautiful chapel this morning in Tibberton. A new venture in the deepening bonds between the Anglican and Methodist churches in this village, right in the heart of one of Gloucestershire’s farming communities.
