Shrove Tuesday

Many thanks to Elizabeth-Ann Reed and her team who provided the pancakes and helped organise the races at school. the children clearly enjoyed it and it was rewarding to see this.


As we move through Lent, we continue our Lent Lunches of soup and rolls on Wednesday 2nd and 9th April from 12.30 -1.30pm.

Our annual spring clean of the church will take place on Saturday 12th April beginning at 10.00am so that St Andrew's looks its best for Holy Week.

You should be aware that the Bishop of Ramsbury is undertaking a Lent Pilgrimage around churches in the Savernake Team on Tuesday 8th April. he is doing this on foot as his resolution for Lent has been to give up using his car. The itinerary will be posted in the church noticeboard and although he will not reach us, he would welcome company on any of the legs or stopping points on his route or at the final Compline and Lent talk at St Michael's Tidcombe at 7.15pm.

Our services during Holy Week include the traditional Walk of Witness between Ducis and Kingston on Good Friday, starting with a short service at St Andrew's at 10.00am and finishing with hot cross buns at Kingston Village Hall after the closing service at St Mary's. This Walk always sends a powerful message to those travelling along the busy A338. There is a Savernake Team Service of Light at St Michael's Tidcombe at 7pm on Easter Eve and out Easter Service will be st 9.30am, followed by the usual Easter Egg hunt for the children after the service.


We shall be meeting on 2nd April at 10.30am.

This is an informal gathering for mums, grandparents, carers with young children to come along and enjoy a coffee and chat and join with their young one in doing some craft activities and/or music.
There will only be one meeting this month because of Easter celebrations.

Everyone is welcome.

Tea Afternoon

There will be no drop in afternoon teas in April but you can always drop in for Lent lunch instead.

Annual Parish Meeting

Advance notice is given of our Annual Parish Church Meeting at 7.30pm on 10th April with refreshments available from 7.15pm. This consists of two short meetings following each other, the first to elect churchwardens and the second to answer any questions on the various reports provided by the current holders and to elect new Church Council members. The reports will be available in the church for you to see during the week before the meeting.

It is great to see our new Team vicar, Rev Jo Reid, living and walking her dog around the village. She was given a warm wlecome at her Licensing service and first service in St Andrew's last month and we very much look forward to working with her this Eastertide and beyond.
