A whole year has passed since our weekly newsletter and service sheet for St. Mary's , Swynnerton and St. James, Cotes Heath began being produced.Jackie Stokes our wonderful editor has worked very hard producing a weekly newsletter that has been both fresh and creative keeping our church family and local community up to date and informed with church and parish news. The accompanying service sheet has allowed those who have been unable to attend church during the pandemic to follow the services that have been held in St.Marys when restrictions have allowed us to open the church . So many people have found this invaluable as a way of being kept in touch with church family and local news . A copy of this newsletter is sent out to around 80 households via email and with a reported over 100 people regularly viewing our website to read it .
In this Holy Week edition there are details of our planned Easter services and in addition there is a short meditation on Maundy Thursday evening at 7pm via zoom accessed by the link. Everyone is welcome . There are also details of the TV and radio programmes being broadcast by the BBC for Easter and also included are Holy Week services at Lichfield Cathedral with details of how to access these via their website.
Finally our #LiveLent course reaches its penultimate session 6 on Sunday entitled " Finding echoes of the story of Jesus in our world today." June Steed leads the session this week which has proved to be really enjoyable and thought provoking by all who attend ! Everyone is welcome to join via zoom link in the newsletter.
