The plaque project is really up and running. Once again many thanks to everyone who supported the day.

What a cracking start with our first venture!

Winnie is definitely on the way back to Tilshead.

Church Services Update

Written by   in 

Dear friends, 

The notices below contain details of two important services next weekend (11th March), to which we hope you will be able to come.

I have taken the difficult decision to cancel the two morning services planned for this coming Sunday (4th):

9am in Orcheston

10.30am in Tilshead

Clearly the condition of our roads may change in the next 36 hours, but we are also concerned about the extreme cold within our buildings and the conditions of the paths leading to both churches. We would not wish anyone to risk their safety by venturing out.

If we have a miraculous thaw tomorrow then I will contact you again, but for now please assume that there are no morning services. I’d be grateful if you would pass this message on to any who may not usually use email.

We will make a final decision on the evening Bible Study in Chitterne during Sunday itself.

Holy Communion services during the coming week- Tuesday at 10am in Shrewton and 2.30pm on Wednesday in Parson’s Green Community Room in Shrewton will go ahead unless the weather worsens. You are warmly invited to join us on one of those occasions if you wish to.

The Lent Group on Monday evening is also expected to go ahead- 7pm in Maddington Church Room, and again on Thursday morning at 10am.

If any of you would like us to visit with home communion on Sunday please let us know.

with kind regards,


The Revd Canon Eleanor Rance
