It was a great occasion on October 14th when Bishop Robert came to our parishes to conduct a confirmation service at St Andrew’s Chedworth. The service went well and a big thank you to families of confirmation candidates who provided the refreshments. Please do pray for Rebecca Fulford, Isabella Dewar, Harry Marsden, Phineas Rotherford, George Gresley and Malcolm Fisk that they would know God’s presence and blessing in their lives going forward.
Advent Messy Service
The Advent Messy Service will be in the Tea Time Service slot at 4pm on Sunday 9th December. This is an opportunity to praise God with our hands, as well as with hearts, minds and voices! Songs, activities, crafts and much more! Refreshments to follow. If you have never been to a Messy Service before, now is your chance! It’s great fun.
St Andrew’s Day Ceilidh
A big thank you to all from St Andrew’s Church and St Andrew’s School who helped with our St Andrew’s Day Ceilidh.
By now, at least some of you will have seen the Chedworth Church Hot Desk! in the village. Thanks to all of you who stopped for a chat – and if you didn’t see me there, remember you can always contact me on 01285 720392. Look out for the Hot Desk! again during spring 2019, Rev’d Stephen.
