On Friday 30th September from 9 till 12, we will again be holding a coffee morning at Castle Combe Village Hall, in support of Macmillan. This wonderful charity has directly touched the lives of people in the village this year, and with your support, we hope to make this event an even greater success than last year. Even better, it’s not onerous!! Come, bring friends, munch your body weight in cake, and donate what you can.

Kington St Michael Teddy Challenge

Kington St Michael Teddy Challenge

Enjoy a cream tea, face painting, teddy stall and bring and buy.

All proceeds to church funds.

We very much look forward to seeing you there.

Prayer to use during the vacancy

The Ministry Team has developed the following prayer for use at services and church meetings during the current vacancy period which we invite you to use.

Heavenly Father,
During this vacancy,
guard and grow this Benefice as we serve you together
in this period without a Priest in Charge.

Lord Jesus,
We know that you have plans for us
and that these plans are good.
We ask now that you will help us to share responsibility,
grow in faith, love one another, care for those in need,
reach out to others, and welcome newcomers.

Holy Spirit,
Please guide those who are seeking the right person for us,
and those who are seeking the right place for their ministry,
that together we may discover your way for the future
and see your kingdom grow.

Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
