A Deanery Day
(including free buffet lunch)
9.30 am - 3.00 pm
The Rural Dean writes ‘we begin the day with tea and coffee then look at what is working well in our churches, what is seen as successful and could be done elsewhere. Afterwards we'll plan together for the times when Readers and clergy are not available to lead our services, and work out what a 'deanery' service might look like. After lunch there will be some time thinking about the changes the deanery faces and how we could shape things to work to our best advantage.
To end our day we'll worship together, perhaps using the 'deanery' service planned earlier in the day aiming to finish about 3.30pm
I hope and pray that this will be a day of celebrating what is going well and excitement about the future and we'd love you, and as many people from your church as you can bring, to join us”.

“Friday, 21st April - Elsdon Film Club - Hell or High Water - With their mother recently deceased and their family’s West Texas farm facing foreclosure, two Brothers — ex-con Tanner (Ben Foster) and divorced dad Toby (Chris Pine) — embark on an audacious bank-robbing spree to raise some cash. The only thing in their way? A wily Texas Ranger (Jeff Bridges) and his put-upon partner. Directed by David Mackenzie. 2015 (Cert 15) Doors Open: 7pm. Elsdon Village Hall. Films start 7.30pm. ADMISSION £4. Sweets and refreshments available. Empire magazine said: “Taut, tense and burnished by Jeff Bridges at his best. This is a deceptively simple tale of Texan cops and robbers that drags the Old West into the modern age” .
