“Why we do what we do in church”

Simon will again be leading a discussion on the Liturgy and Praxis of our church services to help reveal just why we do what we do in church. This talk and discussion was very well received last year and many said when was it going to be given again. Sunday 18th March 3pm in St James – with refreshments – open to all.

Message from Rosemary Saxey: Due to the recent adverse weather, the Women's World Day of Prayer services in Shaftesbury were cancelled, or those that went ahead were with small congregations, resulting in very little being given to support the WWDP charities. The service sheets will be available on Sunday 11th March so those who missed the service can have them and donate then if they wish. Thanks, Rosemary Saxey.
