Hello All,

As we enjoy the summer holidays it provides us with time to relax and maybe enjoy new experiences

I have just spent a week helping with ‘Waste Watchers’, our Benefice Holiday Club. It was hard work, but such a joy and privilege to work with the youngsters. Children are always keen to learn something new; a bit like a sponge, they soak it up!

As we look to September and the ‘One Life’ weekend, it will give the adults a chance to try something new. In the Diocese we will be celebrating a visit from bishops and staff from across the country. There are lots of events on offer, but closer to home we have several opportunities to enjoy fellowship with others.

On Friday, 13th September we are having a meal at Woodborough Hall. Tickets are £12.50 each for a two course hot buffet, and the guest speakers are the Bishop of Berwick, and the Bishop of Man. Why not plan a night out with friends and come along?

Saturday 14th September at 9.30am gives us the opportunity to meet up for breakfast at the Four Bells pub at Woodborough, at a cost of £5 each.

As you see various opportunities to meet and be together.

The busy weekend will conclude with church services and, as always. you are all welcome.

Please consider attending any, or all, of the events on offer. Bring along friends and perhaps make new ones too.
