Following guidance from the Church of England, we have made the difficult decision to cancel all church meetings and services in the AMICA Benefice until further notice. This includes the Calverhall PCC meeting tonight, and our Mothering Sunday services this weekend, and we are very sorry for any sadness or disappointment this causes.
All of our Churchyards, and some of our Churches, will still be open daily for prayer and reflection, and we would encourage you to make use of them. We are also encouraging people to join us in praying wherever you are at 9am and 9pm each day.
I know that these are anxious times, but your church has been here to support you through plagues and famines, World Wars and Civil Wars and we will be here for you through this! Please be assured of our prayers for all our communities, and if there is anything (practical or spiritual) that we can help with please don’t hesitate to contact Rev’d Rich on (01630) 639576 or email@example.com.
At Pat Davies’ funeral yesterday I read these words which I think are very appropriate for us at the moment:
I said to the man who stood at the gate of the year: “Give me a light that I may tread safely into the unknown” And he replied: “Go out into the darkness and put your hand into the hand of God,
That shall be better to you than light, and safer than a known way”
Yours in Christ,
Rev’d. Rich Clarkson Rector of the AMICA Benefice
(Adderley, Moreton Say, Ightfield, Calverhall and Ash)
Christmas is always a special time for the whole family and in Adderley we like to think we keep a good Christmas.
Watch out for details of carols round the village and the Christmas Eve Carol Service at St Peters followed by mince pies and a get together.
Now it’s Christingle. This year it’s in aid of The Children’s Society – no child should feel alone. Why not come along to the special service for all the Family and take away your very own Christingle!
Remembrance Sunday is this Sunday the 11th of November and will be a very special day: It commemorates the The Armistice that ended the 1st World War and this Sunday falls on the 11th hour of the 11th month just as it did 100 years ago.
Irrespective of faith please come to St Peter’s Adderley for the 10 am service to honour all the soldiers who fought in this horrific war.
