Dear Friends

Sunday school  will be available  on Sunday 10 March at St Michael Great Tew (please can children aged three and under be accompanied).

Revision of the Church Electoral Roll

This year a new Church Electoral Roll needs to be prepared for each of the three parishes. This means that whoever wishes to be on the church electoral roll must fill out a new form and return it either to Charlotte (Great Tew), Claire Freeman (Little Tew), John Sword (Heythrop) or to Ginny.

The new electoral roll will be completed and displayed in each church two weeks prior to the Annual Parochial Church Meeting (APCM).  The dates of the meetings are: Heythrop Sunday 10th March (tbc); Little Tew Sunday 17th March; Great Tew Sunday 24th March after the church service. Please complete, sign and return your form to Charlotte Woodward (Great Tew), Claire Freeman (Little Tew), John Sword (Heythrop) or Ginny.  In order to have time to prepare the new roll, please return your form by Wednesday 20th February (Heythrop); Wednesday 27th February (Little Tew): Wednesday 6th March (Great Tew).  Thank you.

Lent

Lent begins on Ash Wednesday 6th March. There will be a Eucharist service with the Imposition of Ashes at St John’s, Little Tew at 6pm.

Lent discussion group: this will take place on Wednesday evenings at the Vicarage from 6pm-7pm, starting on Wednesday 13th March ending on Wednesday 10th April.  We will be discussing ‘Songs of the Spirit’ by Megan Daffern (SPCK £9.99) which looks at some psalms are that especially suited to Lent.  Please let Ginny know if you’d like to attend.
