From the Dragons’ Den
Here we are again! Although not quite as usual! Due to Covid-19, we weren’t able to enjoy our Christmas Tree Festival but, in its place, we experienced ‘Light Up Pontesbury’ when lots of people decorated their businesses and houses to light the village up in delightful Christmas displays. We enjoyed a Service of Lessons and Carols, Crib Service, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day Services when, although only our choir were able to sing, we were glad of the Good News of the birth of a special baby.
Here we are in a New Year, 2021. In the past year we have had to leave aside many activities, such a Little Dragons, Messy Church, Friday Club and even many of the church services. Now we live in hope that they all may be reinstated in the coming months. Several of our congregation members have been involved in new tasks such as leading services and keeping Members in contact with one another. Our Church Wardens and PCC have worked hard to ensure continuity, and our choir, despite that lack of a regular organist, have done much to keep their area of expertise alive and well.
Thus, time passes and we look forward to an increasingly wonderful, happy and fulfilling New Year, enlivened by the arrival of our new Rector, Reverend Gregg Smith and his wife, Fran. We look forward to their arrival in February and hope that they will soon feel at home amongst us.
Sending you every good wish for the New Year and for many years to come, Val Butterworth
