Dear Friends

This Sunday: Palm Sunday 10am St Michael’s.  We will gather at the entrance to the church yard for the first part of the liturgy and then process to the church for the remainder of the service. If you would prefer not to process, please make your way to the church and wait for the rest of the congregation to arrive.

There are services on Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Saturday leading up to the service on Easter Day.  Please attend these services if you can; they are an excellent preparation for the celebration on Easter Day.  Refreshments will be served after the Easter Vigil on Easter Saturday.

Collection for Easter flowers at Great Tew. If you wish to donate towards the cost of Easter flowers, donations can be given to Susannah Veale or Ginny.  There will be a basket at the back of the church when we have services at Great Tew. All donations are gratefully received.
