September Message

Revd. Chris

SEP. 01, 2023

Something for every generation

Something for every generation

In psalm 78 verse 4 we are invited to tell the next generation about the glorious deeds of the Lord. With this in mind the beginning of September marks the end of the summer holidays and the culmination of the heritage project in our five churches. Sunday 3rd September, 2-4pm at St Mary’s Church Kinnerley, is the official launch of the project materials: including heritage guide books, church detective booklets, postcards, pilgrim badges, audio/visual materials in each church and pilgrimage routes through the beautiful countryside in which we live linking our five churches together. The resources, which include school resources, artwork created by local school children, and local residents from older generations, will be on display on Sunday 3rd.

The following Saturday 9th is Ride+Stride. For those of you who do not know what this is, it is an annual event where people get sponsored to walk or cycle between churches, raising money for the Shropshire Historic Churches’ Trust, and their local church. Any money raised is split 50:50. For years Diana Humphries and Sian West have taken part on behalf of our local churches, and I want to say thank you to them publicly here. I thank you too for supporting them in the past, and invite you to sponsor them again this year!

To mark the launch of the pilgrimage trails, I will be taking part in Ride+Stride by walking the 17 miles linking our five churches. I invite you to join me for as much, or as little, of the route as you want to partake in. I will be starting and finishing at Kinnerley, raising money for our five churches and the Shropshire Historic Churches Trust. I will be starting at 9am and ask you to see church noticeboards for start times if you would like to join in at Melverley, Maesbrook, Maesbury or Knockin.

Yours in Christ

Revd Chris
