Quiz well done
Well done to all who attended the quiz last weekend in Shrewton. In all you raised £1,157 in support of the ministry at St. Mary’s, Shrewton. A big thank you to everyone who worked hard to make it such a successful and happy event. And I believe that a different team won this year….!
Open garden scheme
Shrewton is planning this event this year and the first meeting is on 27th February. We would really welcome people to be involved and help us organize this. If interested do please ring or email me for further details, Gay Jennings-Bramly 01980 620422 email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Lent in 2017
The Diocese have produced a booklet called ‘Praying Together’ specifically for our use in the parish during Lent this year. Copies of the booklet are available for every parishioner, and can be collected from each church in the parish. In addition, those who wish may download the same material as an app for tablet or smartphone (called Prayer Mate), or go to the Diocesan website where they can download/print the material for free.
Lent Study Group
The Bible Study group which currently meets monthly on Tuesdays in Shrewton will be following a book during Lent called ‘Abraham’ by Meg Warner. The Lent group will begin on 28th Feb at 7.30pm and continue weekly throughout Lent. If you would like to be part of this then please contact Heather Brearey (01980 621851) for more details.
Suggested Reading in Lent
David Walters would like to recommend this book: ‘Waiting on the Word by Malcolm Guite. A poem and reflection for each day of Lent and for Easter. (Advent, Christmas and Epiphany was really good).’
If you have a book you’d like to recommend please let us know and we’ll add it to our list!
