First service and a lovely walk

Melverley Church News

St Peter’s Church Melverley celebrated the first Sunday service following Covid restrictions on 4th July. It was a service of celebration. Firstly to celebrate the patronal day for St Peter, which was on 29th June, secondly to celebrate the reading of banns for two local couples to be married in the church very shortly. This was accompanied by celebrating a 30 year wedding anniversary and a birthday too!

Fortunately, the rain kept away long enough for a hymn to be sung outside at the end of the service completing the evening of celebrations with cake!

Walking in the footsteps of St Winefride

On Tuesday 15th June I accompanied Sue Brown and some of her friends  on a walk from Kinnerley to Maesbury following the St Winefride's trail, stopping for lunch and a dip in the water at St Winefride’s Well at Woolston. This walk will form part of the small rural churches trail for the five churches in our benefice.

Sue Brown has written an account of our walk that day. For Sue Brown and her friends this day was just part of a seven day walk from Shrewsbury Abbey to Holywell, walking the St Winefride's way. (See previous News item)
