Church of England Diocese of Lichfield Alrewas

From the Vicar - September 2019

28 Aug 2019, 10 p.m.

As summer holidays finish and everyone who attends school will soon begin a brand new year of exploration, learning and personal growth, it’s important to remember that each of us as human beings are meant to be ‘life-long learners’ -  increasing our understanding, exploring possibilities, developing gifts and skills, trying things which are new for us, and learning with and from those around us!  This autumn, our Benefice churches offer a variety of opportunities to help you grow and flourish as a life-long learner, including……

 Opportunities to explore ‘questions of life’ and discover how Christian faith and discipleship give us unique resources for living life ‘to the full’. ALPHA (based in Alrewas) and Pilgrim (based in Fradley) are available for anyone hungry for ‘food for thought’ (and other refreshments too!).

The Monday Afternoon Drop-in in Alrewas (2 to 4 pm at the Methodist Church, except Bank Holidays), and the Wednesday Welcome in St. Stephen’s Church Fradley (2 to 4 pm each Wednesday) offer everyone a warm welcome, tasty refreshments, and great opportunities to make new friends and learn from each other.

 Special interest groups are available in the benefice if you’d like to ‘have a go’ at handcrafts, singing in a choir, bell ringing (both hand bells and ‘big bells’ are available), participating in a Youth Fellowship……

…..and, of course, all three of our churches in Alrewas, Fradley and Wychnor offer regular opportunities to continue growing in faith, hope and love through a wide variety of worship services.


You are most warmly welcome and invited to join in any opportunities we offer. If you need more information about any church events or groups, feel free to contact the Vicar (John Allan) or Associate Minister (Elizabeth Wall)
