Dear Church member
Just two items today...
On Sunday, 23rd May, we will be marking Pentecost Sunday with a benefice walk. The walk will be circular, approximately 4.7 miles in length and take around 2.5 hours. A group will leave from St Matthew's and another group from All Saints', and both groups will meet for the central section of the walk before returning to their respective starting points.
There are no stiles, the only steps are those going down from the Reading Road to Broadway (which are very shallow), the walk is all-terrain buggy friendly, and will be at a leisurely pace, which will give people plenty of opportunity to chat. We will stop at several points for a short reading/reflection and prayer for our local area.
To aid the planning, and to take account of the current limit on 30 people meeting outdoors, I would be grateful if you would indicate whether you think you might like to take part, how many people you are responding for, and whether you would be starting from Chilton or from Harwell by clicking this link. This would be merely be a helpful indicator; I will be sending out another email later in the week to actually book places.
Closing down sale
The second item is to let you know about a closing down sale at The Fountain Christian Bookshop in Wallingford between now and Saturday 29th May, with 60% off everything. Having served the community for many years the space is to be made into a community hub with a redeveloped kitchen at its heart. Do go along to bag some bargains and support Ridgeway Church Wallingford in the process. Please also pass on news of this to others who you feel might be interested.
Yours, in Christ,
Revd Dr Jonathan Mobey
Rector of Harwell with Chilton
