Ride and Stride

This year’s Gloucestershire Historic Churches Trust Ride and Stride takes place this weekend.

Sally and Bob will be out walking (in the rain??) to the four Benefice churches again to raise money for the charity. Please support them by going to the JustGiving Page Thank you! We have raised £495 with Gift Aid to date….

The churches in our Benefice have received grants from GHCT this year, so it is important to support them, and as a bonus, half of whatever we raise comes back to the Benefice! All four churches will be opened to welcome any Riders or Striders who are out raising money for their local churches.

Ride+Stride is a nationwide event supported by the National Churches Trust but organised by local historic churches trusts. Each year, thousands of people are sponsored to travel from church to church by walking or cycling (or on horseback – as did Heather Gent last year!) If you’d like to take part then you can find out more on the GHCT website.

Bible Study – ‘The Bible Course’

A new group for anyone who’d like grow in faith alongside others starts this autumn.

The Bible Course (from the Bible Society) is a contemporary way to gain an over view of the Bible and see ‘God’s Big Story’ in context.

The group will meet on Thursday evenings 7.30-9.00pm in the Chapel (Marshfield High Street) and the first meeting is on 7th October.

We’d love to see you there.

Foodbanks

There will be an increased need for foodbanks with the negative impact on people’s livelihoods caused by the Covid 19 outbreak. The homeless are still homeless, but those who were vulnerable before will be added to by those newly facing hardship. You can offer support by giving direct to the Bath Foodbank via their website.

Genesis are no longer accepting donations of food from any source other than supermarkets. They are then delivering the food parcels out to those in need, rather than have them come in to collect them.  So please do continue to make food donations at your local supermarkets.  Thank you.

A Message from the Ministry Team

Our Benefice Churches are open daily. Communion services are offered in church at 9.00am as follows:

Cold Ashton 1st Sunday; Marshfield 2nd Sunday; Tormarton 3rd Sunday; West Littleton 4th Sunday.

Jesus called us ‘to love our neighbours as ourselves’ which we do willingly, but our nation also needs us to be a community of prayer. St James wrote that if  ‘anyone lacks wisdom they should ask God for it’. That is something we can do for those with leadership responsibilities at this time, as well as praying for strength in body, mind and spirit for all in healthcare, education and key work and for those who are economically vulnerable, anxious, ill, or bereaved.

May God continue to grant us courage, patience and His protection and healing.                                                        Rev. Sally Wheeler
