Pentecost Sunday, 4th June. The Birthday of the Church!

Join us for our “Stay Day” and the next Church Open Meeting
To celebrate, rather than an away day, this year we will be having a ‘stay day’.
Starting with our United Benefice service in Shipton, we will then have an Open Meeting over coffee. We hope this will be an opportunity to share the journey so far, where we are, and the hopes and concerns we have together.
There will then be a bring and share lunch. After lunch, we will be using one of the Deanary pilgrimage walks taking us from Shipton to Milton; an opportunity to talk, to pray, and to appreciate our surroundings. We will finish the day with tea and cakes in the Benefice Centre [any offers from bakers gratefully received!].
Rather than set out the agenda for the coming year, this is an opportunity to spend time together, give thanks and ask God’s blessing on us.
Please put the date in your diary, and let people who may be interested know that it is happening.

This day is also part of Thy Kingdom Come, a global wave of prayer taking place between 25 May and 4 June. For more information go to
