Message from the Rev’d Ben Rundell-Evans

For those who wish to keep in contact with the Parish of Upper Stour at this time there are several innovative ways. One is the recently introduced Parish e-newsletter. You can see the current and latest newsletter here . This month features the Holy Week and Easter celebrations, together with an exploration of a very unusual Lent. The articles are accompanied by some joyous photgraphy.

Included is a link to the Holy Week and Easter 2020 booklet which helps you follow through from Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday.(Click Here – Holy Week). The booklet was produced by the Diocese of Lichfield. The Rev’d Ben hopes it will be helpful for us all as we keep this holy time together, but in different places.

There is also some support for our volunteers and those many individuals who have been helping the community at this time.

I am delighted that so many are rising to the challenge to help one another! This month’s Parish Magazine outlines some of the help that is being provided, and I would also like to draw your attention to the Bourton Community Support Group, details of which can be found here.

Rev’d Ben Rundell-Evans – Priest in Charge, Parish of Upper Stour

The Reverend Ben will also be sending out an e-newsletter on Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, Holy Saturday and Easter Sunday. If you discover that someone would like to receive these e-newsletters who hasn’t yet, then please encourage them to sign up here.
