News from the churches

At services in January, the season of Epiphany, Rev. Penny and Canon Michael spoke of the baptism of the baby Jesus and the arrival of the Wise Men, of unity and tribes being one together. Let us hope with a new leader  in the USA. some of God's hopes will come to fruition. 

We are now heading into Lent, building up to Easter, with meetings at Pete and Sally's house on Tuesday afternoons(2pm) and around the villages in Holy Week. 

The joint 5th Sunday service in Hartpury village hall was a pleasure to attend - communion followed by tea and cake and hymns chosen from around the church congregations and accompanied by the newly formed "music group" (more members needed by them to swell the sound, if you like to play an instrument, here's your chance!!).  There was a smaller turn out for this service than we hoped,  maybe due to the dreadful soggy weather or that so many folk are poorly.

At St. Giles, things carry on as usual.  We have  a Christening and 4 weddings to look forward to during the summer.  Let's  hope as the days get longer  and the trees gain their buds, everybody will be fit and well again.  Services at St. Giles are on 2nd, 3rd and 4th Sundays in the month and we would love to see you there.
