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”.

Can you spare a few groceries
or other essential items for the Newcastle West End Foodbank?
The need is especially great at the moment
after the Christmas rush.
There is a box at the back of St John’s Otterburn where you can drop of items, which will be regularly collected.
