During Lent we are offering a shorter, even more relaxed and informal opportunity to gather for prayer on Thursday at midday for just 15 minutes.  There will be a chance to chat and catch up afterwards.

We will be using the Pray for the Nation leaflet and themes from the Archbishops of Canterbury and York and our own Prayer Calendar.  Most of you will have received a copy of these with our latest Newsletter.  Or you can download copies to print at home…

Fairtrade Fortnight 2021
22nd February to 7th March

Due to climate change, farmers and workers in countries such as Kenya, Ethiopia and Honduras are facing challenges – droughts, crop disease, floods, heatwaves and shrinking harvests. Through fair trade, farmers and growers can earn enough to feed their families, send their children to school, provide a future for their local community and look into solutions to the problems they face due to climate change.

Choosing to buy fair trade, ethical food and drink, is the simplest way to change the world. Traidcraft has released its spring catalogue which includes chocolate for Easter; to see what is available, please click on this link
If you wish to place an order through Jane Deller, please email , or phone 07889  221551 / 01582 834130.

Help is at hand!
We have set up teams offering both pastoral and practical support, so please let others support you – they are keen to do so! Hilary Hollick is helping organise this – so do contact her by email here, or on 01582 832567.  Alternatively call the village wide helpline “Support for All” on 01582 380910.
