Shutford Bulletin

The Annual Parochial Church Meeting was held on 10th March with 9 people attending. John Hodgkins and Ken Jeffs were elected to serve another year as churchwardens and the existing PCC members were also re-elected. John agreed to continue as Deanery Synod Representative, Ken as Treasurer and Julie Hodgkins as Secretary.

The Messy Church Event in Tadmarton was quite well attended. Special thanks to Reverend Ronald for organising the crafts and to everyone who helped, not least the ladies who prepared the children’s tea. The next event is on Good Friday in Sibford from 10am to 12noon: please come along and bring your friends too. There may be some Easter Eggs and other treats to be had.

We were pleased to welcome Lauren Giddings and her family to Morning Praise on 16th March during which Lauren was baptised. Everyone enjoyed the special service, with some familiar hymns and the sunny morning also encouraged our resident butterflies to put in an appearance.

Please join us for our Lent Lunch on Monday, 14th April in Shutford Village Hall from 12.30pm. This year our charity is Maggie's in Oxford.

Easter Sunday Communion will be at 9.30am.

Looking ahead, some Family Fun with a Beetle Drive on Saturday May 10 th in the Village Hall; All ages warmly welcomed. Includes TEA.
