A Message from the Wardens – 12th February 2021

Dear Friends, Dorothy Firth sent the following poem which she wrote after walking up to Owler Bar on one of the lovely cold clear days we have had recently.

A Message from the Wardens – 5th February 2021

Dear Friends, As we come towards the end of the first week of the “Prayer for the Nation” challenge to pray for a few minutes each day at 6 o’clock (or another time that is better for you) we wonder how you are finding it. Sometimes it is hard to know where to start. Today […]

A Message from the Wardens – 28th January 2021

Dear Friends, Whilst we are happy to hear the good news that quite a few of you have been vaccinated this week we are also aware of the pressure many others are under- working long hours in front of a screen, missing human contact, supporting children learning at home and following the news. The Archbishops […]

A Message from the Wardens – 8th January 2021

Dear Friends, At the start of a New Year and a new period of lockdown we are conscious that daily life varies greatly, depending on the stage of life we are at and individual circumstances. For some of us life hasn’t changed greatly, once we have got used to staying at home, yet we are […]

A Message from the Wardens – 17th December 2020

Dear Friends, I wonder how many times in the past you have grumbled about the commercialisation of Christmas? This year seems to have a different feel to it. The pandemic has caused many people to reconsider the things that they value most. We have noticed that this year many more of our Christmas cards have […]

A Message from the Wardens – 10th December 2020

Dear Friends, We are halfway through Advent but it feels as if Christmas is much nearer after last weekend when many people put up their lights and others got organised writing their Christmas cards.
