»Open Churches Weekends 2018«
How can we turn visitors to our church buildings into pilgrims?   Once again, the Diocese would like to encourage and support parishes to open their churches over two weekends in July.   This is a great opportunity to open up new ways for visitors to encounter God and explore the Christian faith. We hope parishes will have innovative ideas that will connect with our vision of growing disciples, younger, wider and deeper – perhaps by having literature available or dvd’s playing and people on hand to talk to. Further resources will be made available to those taking part in the two weekends.

The weekends for opening:
7th/8th July 2018: Bassetlaw & Bawtry and Newark & Southwell Deaneries
21st/22nd July 2018 for: Mansfield, Newstead, Gedling, Nottingham North, Nottingham South, and East & West Bingham Deaneries.
For further information and a registration form please contact Kate Hurst email: kate.hurst@southwell.anglican.org  or Tel: 01636 817211.  Completed registration forms must be received by Friday 26th January 2018.

Ambassadors’ ‘faith shone out’
Five ambassadors from the Diocese of Jerusalem – a priest, a film producer, a dentist, a nutritionist and an advisor to the Palestinian Prime Minister –  spent ten days travelling across Southwell & Nottingham to give an insight into the challenges facing Christians in Israel, Palestine and Jordan.
David Lane, Holy Lands Partnership Officer, who organized the visit, said:  “What shone out was the centrality of their faith lived out in the most difficult of circumstances and the contribution that faith made to their sense of identity.”

  1. Can you put a thank you in the next pew sheet to Tristan Jones and David boot for staying with me after boys brigade on Monday to wait for the paramedics when I had a gallstone attack

    • Dear Adam,
      I’ve just taken over sorting out the web pages and have noticed your comment/request.
      I’m sorry if it hasn’t been replied to previously.
      Would you like me to get this in the next pew sheet as a belated thanks to David and Tristan?
      Best wishes,
      Julia
