    November News From The Clergy

    4 Nov 2019 • From the Clergy

    Memory is a strange thing. Many of us – and not only those of more mature years – will find we can vividly recall events of many years ago, but forget things that happened yesterday, or even why we came upstairs five minutes ago! Memory can also be an illusion; do we really have that childhood memory, or have we heard the story of a certain event so often that we think we remember it?

    October News From the Clergy

    25 Sep 2019 • From the Clergy

    Eleven years ago, during a group discussion at theological college, we somehow ended up talking about famous fish of the Bible. Given the lack of contenders in this category (the fish in Jonah notwithstanding), it mystifies me now how we got into this topic, what we were meant to be discussing, or how we kept going for so long. I certainly never imagined that more than a decade later, I would be writing a magazine piece about animals of the Bible.

  • Barbara and Graham's Latest Quiz

    1 Sep 2019 • St John's Parish News

    Barbara and Graham Willis have done a Harvest Fruit and Vegetable Quiz in aid of Worcester Foodbank, Entry forms are available from the office or Barbara in Church. Unfortunately the gremlins got in to the predictive typing and 2 questions are slightly wrong:

    Q14 should read 'Father's little tipple' and NOT 'Father's little apple'.
    Q37 should read 'Pulse with a dialect' and NOT 'Purse with a dialect'.

    Good luck to all who enter.

    September News From the Clergy

    28 Aug 2019 • From the Clergy

    Ordinary Time between Pentecost and Advent can drag on a little, so I think I’m going to launch a campaign for the end of September to the beginning of December to be officially designated Angeltide!
    On September 29th we celebrate the feast day of St Michael and All Angels and at the end of October we have All Hallows. No sooner have the pumpkins and witches’ costumes left our shop shelves than their place is taken by Christmas cards and decorations in which angels feature prominently.
