Here is the latest edition of our Pew News – featuring diary dates, service times, events, news, the week’s readings. (more…)
One in four children aged 11 failed to reach the expected reading standard in 2017. Illiteracy affects all areas of life. Many schools struggle to find the resources to help children who may be falling behind the rest of the class with their reading levels. (more…)
The harsh reality of giving birth in Sierra Leone, West Africa, where ten women die from giving birth each day, will be brought to life when a Christian Aid worker shares stories from the frontline of maternal health in her country. (more…)
Our very own Rev. David Baldwin makes an appearance on the Church of England podcast this week.
“Listen to hardworking Christians working on mission and growth in rural England. To read the full rural mission and growth learning report, including helpful examples of good practice, useful ideas and approaches, resulting from the February 2018 Renewal & Reform Rural Ministry Seminar, visit www.churchofengland.org/rural.”

Update: Sorry folks. This even will not be going ahead after all on this date.
We believe that God calls all of us to serve him using the gifts he has given us. We each have different gifts and together we are the body of Christ. Yet often we serve in church or in community because we can do the job, not because we feel it is our calling. Whilst we might be capable, it is when we are truly doing what God has called us to that ministry flourishes and we flourish.
If you would like to discern or come to understand what God is calling you to do then perhaps our vocations afternoon is for you. Or perhaps you feel you are trapped in a role that isn’t really the right one and you would like to find the courage to take on something new. Perhaps you work full time and would like to work out how to best serve God in your workplace. Or perhaps you aren’t sure about vocation at all, but think it might be interesting to explore.
You are all welcome on Sunday 17th June from 13:00-17:00 at Litton Cheney Village hall to spend some time with others, listening, praying and chatting. Bring something to share for lunch, we will provide drinks and cake.
If you would like to come please let Jo or David know via email or phone or comment here.
Thy Kingdom Come Day 1 #Pledge2Pray
We visit our primary schools every week and our other schools regularly or at their invitation.
Today in collective worship we were thinking about patience and how we wait patiently. Abraham and Sarah waited patiently to become parents and God was faithful to them.
Pray for our schools, for all that work in education, for children and staff. Pray for patience and peace in our learning communities. Pray for faith to grow and be nurtured. Pray for all those who find the school environment challenging. Amen
