Seven Churches in South Oxfordshire

From the Rector: Tuesday 5th October 2021

New season, new jab!

Dear friends,

Let’s give thanks for all those in the healthcare sector, where the pressure is relentless. Do say thank you at your next opportunity, whether that is in the hospital, at the surgery, or even the surgery car park. Let’s keep up our own best practise too in infection control; with ventilation, hand washing, and mask wearing in crowded indoor venues. This will also help should the flu make an appearance in the coming months.

We’re keeping the doors open at church, by the way, so it is nice and draughty. Masks are optional, but if you choose to wear yours, everyone will give you space. The welcome will be just as warm.

Thank you for your support and care for one another, for your community, and for your churches.

It is absolutely OK to pass these details onto friends and family, who are very welcome to join us. Other service options can be found on the Langtree Team Ministry Churches website.

You can support Checkendon church and  Stoke Row churches via dedicated and secure online card donation pages. Just click on the link. It is very secure.

Harvest flowers

Harvest festivals in our Team churches over the last few weeks have represented a major step out of the darkness, being the first celebration milestone after our return from exile for most members of our congregations. Praying for those who have a role in our food supply chains has never been more apposite. Autumn colours were on display too, as these sunflowers at Checkendon show.

Every blessing for the week ahead.     Revd Kevin
