HOUSEHOLDS OF HOPE

WITH BROTHER SAMUEL SSF

I’m writing to alert you to some exciting changes to the Pewsey Deanery Prayers and Reflections as we move into Advent. For the first week, from Monday 30th November to Friday 4th December, you will receive a daily email from us. The short email will contain a link to a talk by Brother Sam (poster above). An Anglican Franciscan, Brother Sam is one of the most inspiring and gifted figures in the Church of England today, a much loved and deeply wise man. We are incredibly lucky to have him share with us his Advent message of hope.

Please join us for the Zoom meeting which will take place each evening at 6pm when Brother Sam will join us for further talk and discussion.

Remember – “Church” traditionally refers to the people who make up the congregation.  So although our buildings are closed “the church” is very much open.
