|Rob is recuperating at home so we have no magazine (Get well soon Rob) – I didn’t think you’d want another missive from me – so please take a look at all the many events above which are planned for September alone in addition in most cases to our normal services. Lots of regulars have holidays in September so your attendance, support and help could make a real difference. Let’s enjoy doing some fun and rewarding things together in September as the family of God.|
The Mustard Tree are having a week of Summer Fun Lunches at St John’s School in Coleford. If you would like to book then please call the Parish Office.
There is only one service in the Parish this week at St Peter’s, Clearwell @ 10.30am. This is our United Parish Service where congregations from across the parish meet to worship together.
Everyone is welcome!
