From the Vicarage,

As I was thinking about what to write for “July from the Vicarage”

I came across this thought.


“Don’t start your day with the broken pieces of yesterday.

Every day is a fresh start, a new beginning

The first day of the rest of your life."

Very wise advice, I think,  but maybe not that easy to follow.


I wonder if any of the teams in the Football World Cup were advised by their managers to do this after a disastrous game early in the competition.   I would imagine that many of them were, otherwise how could they ever play confidently again.


And the same is true for us if our focus is always on the past and the mistakes we have made then we cannot move forward.

If we don’t forgive those who have hurt us then our lives will be spoilt as we harbour bitterness and regret.  


God wants us to live our lives to the full. He wants us to enjoy all the blessings that he has given to us.

He knows that we all make mistakes and have regrets but he wants us to have his peace and joy in our hearts not bitterness anger or disappointment.


Every new day is a gift from God and he wants us to use our time wisely to make a difference in the world.

We hope that July is a happy month for you and your families.


God bless,     Tim and Norma

CHRISTIAN AID WEEK 2018

A huge thank you to everyone who has been involved in some way with Christian Aid week this year – delivering, collecting, donating, counting …  

The door to door collection raised £1629.65, of which £640 was gift aided, making a total of £1789.65.

We also received a donation of £407.50, of which £375 was gift aided, making a total of £501.25.

So, altogether the grand total of money raised was £2290.90


Thank you again    Carole and Linda


Thank You  

Many thanks to the Brownies and Rainbows for their help at the Flower Service and with the serving of refreshments afterwards. Thanks also for the flowers that they brought to the service, which were much appreciated by the people to whom they were subsequently distributed.

HENBURY  W.I

At our June meeting the members were entertained by Judith Townsend who spoke about her life growing up.  Her talk was entitled ‘Bin Bag baby’.

Three of our members attended the National Federation Annual Conference at the beginning of June.  This was held at the Motorpoint Arena in Cardiff.  It was a very interesting day covering the business of the year.  This year’s resolution was entitled ‘Mental Health Matters’ and the motion was carried by 82% of the members.  The morning speaker was an ex Director of MI5 and the afternoon speaker was Hugh Edwards of BBC fame.

Our July meeting will be our Summer Lunch on 10th July where we gather with friends from other W.I’s and enjoy a lovely buffet lunch with a glass of wine.  We shall have a speaker whose talk is entitled ‘ An Interlude with Joyce Grenfell’

MOTHERS’ UNION

Thank you to all those members who stayed behind after the morning service on the 20th May for our Wave of Prayer in the Church Hall.  We had thirteen members and four husbands, which was not too
bad a number.  Thanks must also go to Jean Osborne for organising the short service.

I (Di Waller) spent Saturday, 2nd June at The Big Church Day Out at Capesthorne Hall helping on the MU soft play tent.  Unfortunately the weather was not as good as it had been on the Friday but we had plenty of visitors and it was surprising how many had not heard of MU but were very interested.  Hopefully this will lead to some new members throughout the Diocese.  It was also good chatting to other volunteers from the Lichfield and Derby Diocese.

The next couple of months are quite quiet for us as a group.  The first event is our Branch Fundraiser detailed below.  This is open to anyone not just MU members and it would be good to see some new faces.  Please bring along friends and neighbours for an enjoyable afternoon.

We also have our outing this month to the National Trust property Erddig.  Details will have been sent via e-mail but are also below.

In August we have our Branch meal which will be held at The Bull’s Head, Mottram.  Menus have been sent out and you should contact Chris Redfern if you want to go with your choice of meal.

I will end with a big THANK YOU to everyone who contributed pairs of socks for our “Box of Socks”.  Our overflowing box was taken to the AGM & Council meeting in Hartford on the 30th June and much appreciated.

Wishing everyone a wonderful Summer!
