    Pentecost service

    As I start to plan ahead (Shock), I am looking at our Pentecost service and wondered if there might be a few who would like to record saying the creed please.

    If you wish to do this, you can either do it with a webcam and microphone, or on your phone and send it to me. I will send you a script to read.

    Many blessings

    Assistant Minister in the parish of Desford & Kirby Muxloe

    Christian Aid Week

    Following the concerns about Christian Aid week, I have been in touch with them and asked their permission to link to their giving page. During these difficult times, the local Churches, who would normally be delivering the Christian Aid envelopes to your home, ask, that you make your donation using the following link, where you can donate via an e-envelope. 

    All charities continue to need support, and we do thank you for your generosity in the past via the collection envelopes and can only encourage you to be as generous via the suggested method.
