Fundraising for the East Window Appeal

EODs held their ‘More than Words’ concert on July 30th, as part of the Evesham Festival of Words. The church was lit with glorious colour and ringing with wonderful music. The clever technicians also backlit the east window from the church garden, showing all of its glorious colours.

 

 

 

 

 

On Sunday 1st of July, we were open for the Port Street Fayre. Visitors included Mr Asparagus, the local police needing a drink, people taking refreshments in the shade in the garden and children who completed a treasure hunt while their parents sat in the cool.

James’s ordination in Wells Cathedral

On Sunday 1st July James Bell-Winfrow was ordained deacon in Wells Cathedral, having completed his training at Cuddesdon College Oxford. He says it was a very emotional day but he is looking forward to taking up his post in Langport, Somerset.

Please pray for James and the whole family as they began their life Somerset.

A prayer from the service of ordination of deacons

God our Father, Lord of all the world,

through your Son you have called us into the fellowship

of your universal Church:

hear our prayer for your faithful people

that in their vocation and ministry

each may be an instrument of your love,

and give to your servants to be ordained

the needful gifts of grace;

through our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ,

who is alive and reigns with you,

in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and for ever.

Amen.

Flora Fest 23rd & 24th July 2018

We had a wonderful weekend, with the church having 31 displays put up by 28 local groups and organisations. We had lots of visitors, including Nigel Huddleston our MP. A mountain of cake was eated, washed down with gallons of tea and coffee. Details of money raised are on the East Window Appeal page. More important than that was the pleasure of welcoming in visitors from the local community. Thank you everyone for your support.

 

Confirmations

On Sunday 17th June the benefice came together, with the families and friends of those confirmed. We pray for all who were confirmed:

 

 

 

 

 

Lord God
We thank you for all who are taking the step of faith
And coming forward for Confirmation:
The keen; the cautious;
The patient and impatient;
The fearful and the doubting.
You have stirred the depths of their being,
Where deep speaks to deep;
And your word captivates
The heart and the imagination;
Where we can never be the same
Because we at last know we are known by you.
Lord, Stay and play
And teach and inspire
And show them such wonders of your love
Your mercy and your creative imagination
That they may approach your throne
With hearts on fire with love for you.
And be sealed, forever yours. Amen.
