Friday 2nd August – Summertime Music
7.00pm in St John’s Church Hall
Come and enjoy a relaxed evening with the one and only Rev. David Botterill
With the 75 Anniversary of D Day just gone, we all know the music we were singing here in the UK, but David is pondering on the music that folk might have been singing over the Channel under occupation. Thrown into the mix, will be items from two lost musicals, one Broadway, one Drury Lane.

*Thy Kingdom Come* is a global prayer movement that invites Christians around the world to pray for more people to come to know Jesus. What started in 2016 as an invitation from the Archbishops of Canterbury and York to the Church of England has grown into an international and ecumenical call to prayer.
After the very first Ascension Day the disciples gathered with Mary, constantly devoting themselves to prayer while they waited for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost. Like them, our reliance on the gift of the Holy Spirit is total – on our own we can do nothing. Through the centuries Christians have gathered at that time to pray for the coming of the Holy Spirit. ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ picks up this tradition. As Archbishop Justin Welby says* “In praying 'Thy Kingdom Come' we all commit to playing our part in the renewal of the nations and the transformation of communities."*
At 9.15 am on Friday 31 May, Saturday 1 June and Monday – Friday 3-7 June we will be having a short time of informal prayer *in St Johns Church*. It will last no more than half an hour though people will be free to stay longer if they wish to. On Saturday 8 June, the eve of Pentecost, we will have Evening prayer at 6.00pm. All are welcome to join us.
Saturday 8 June 10am-2pm in the Town Hall Shaftesbury. Spring Sale with stalls - plants, cakes, books, bric-a-brac, cards, face-painting. Raffle and refreshments. Enjoy a bacon buttie or a cake and coffee, and plenty of chat. Proceeds will go towards the cost of necessary roof repairs to the church roof.
