Sunday Services – 30th August

Dear all

The usual ‘heads up’ for worship in the Benefice tomorrow…
In Church:
8am Holy Communion in St John’s, Tatworth – Rev Judith
10am Outdoor Communion for all – St Mary Magdalene’s, Cricket Malherbie – Rev Philip
If you are coming to the outdoor service, whilst there are some chairs available, it would be preferable if you could bring your own camp chairs or the like!  It will be an informal service of Communion.  I would like a few voices to help with the reading – if you are coming and would like to say a line either reply now or catch me tomorrow!  
The readings and talk from the above service will be available online tomorrow around lunchtime.  
The next live online service will be on 13 September.
