Posted on Maundy Thursday 13/4/17
Dear friends,
We have just begun the great ‘Three Days’ of our observation of Easter. We start with the last supper, and tonight, until midnight, the vigil in Shrewton church, when we recall Jesus’ time in the Garden of Gethsemane before his arrest.

Tomorrow we meet at 9.30am at Shrewton Church to walk together to Tilshead for our Good Friday service (12noon). If you would rather drive to that service, the road between Shrewton/Orcheston is, I believe, open tomorrow.
Then on Sunday morning we have 5 services to mark the great celebration that is Easter. 6am and 9.30am in Orcheston, 9.30am in Chitterne, and 11am in Tilshead and Shrewton.

Please do come and join us if you can, it makes our journey to Easter so much more significant if we walk in Jesus’ footsteps.
On Saturday at 11am there will be a commemoration of a 100th anniversary of one of our WW1 service men. 11 at the Shrewton War memorial.

Please find the other church notices attached (and below).
with kind regards,

Eleanor
