Regular activities

Active age   our exercise group meets every Wednesday in   

                    the church hall at 11am. 

Little Fishes our group for the under 5s meets on

2nd and 16th February in the church hall at 10am.

Thank You 

To all who came to our Christingle Service on Christmas Eve.  The church was once again filled with candle light and it was a very special moment when we lit the Christingles and sang “Away in a Manger.” 

Special thanks go to Adam at Measham Tesco and Harry in Ashby who provided the sticks, sweets and oranges, without which we could not have gone ahead. 

We sent £253.51 to The Children’s Society for their work with vulnerable children.

 

                     Ash Wednesday falls on 14th February this year.

                     There will be two services, one at Packington at 10am

                     and one at Measham at 7pm.

This is always a very meaningful service to start us off on the path to Easter.

Lent Course

Rick will be running our Lent course for

6 sessions on Thursday mornings from

10.30am-12 in Measham Hall, starting on 

February 15th and running until March 21st.   

This is always a good time to reflect and

prepare ourselves for Easter.
