Greetings from Revd. Tonya
Lent is upon us. I wonder how will you spend it? Giving up chocolate perhaps? Being a kinder person? The list could go on and on.
In Braydon Brook Benefice, some of us are going to take up the challenge of being more aware of our environment. Each Church is looking into the possibility of becoming an ‘Eco Church’. So, on the 1st March we’re launching the ‘6-week challenge’.
We all know that we could do more with regards to the environment. And we also know that the life we live and world we live in make it difficult to avoid creating more rubbish and pollution. It’s impossible to be perfect, but that doesn’t mean we can’t do our bit. Small steps can lead to giant strides.
So, I wonder, are you willing to take up this challenge? If yes, you can pick up a booklet in any of the Churches or download a copy from the website:
Lent Blessings to you all
Loving Lord, call us out of our sleep
Awaken our hearts and minds to your hope.
Awaken us to be renewed with creation.
Awaken us to the joy of enabling others to live life to the full.
Loving Lord, call us out of our sleep. Amen.
There will be only one Lent lunch this year to be hosted by Angela Gee and Jill Neilson on Wednesday, 18th March at 12.30pm to 2pm at Church Farm Barns, Oaksey (behind the Wheatsheaf Pub).
All are very welcome to attend.
Church Open Days
As previously advised, the Church will be open on Saturdays from 21st March 2020 to Saturday, 10th October 2020, inclusive, from 10am to 4pm (in 2-hour slots).
On the 1st Open Day i.e. 21st March at 10am, Nick Mangnall will be giving a short presentation on the history of our wonderful Grade 1 listed Church including its many interesting features.
All are very welcome to attend.

A note for your diaries: This will take place on Saturday, 23rd May at 10am, followed by a lunchtime barbecue at the back of the Church.
