Dear Friends,

Christmas is fast approaching. Are you ready? Maybe you are feeling overwhelmed by all the things that ‘have to be done?’ Or maybe you have been thrown off course by something unexpected? In our busyness and bustle, it’s important not to miss: Jesus’s arrival changed the world. It changed lives. And it changes us too. Advent is a precious time of preparation and reconnection with God. The Christmas story reminds us that even in the darkest times we are not alone because God, in Jesus, is with us forever.

God Bless, 
Revd Clare Coates,
Lead Minister for Dry Drayton, Hardwick and Caldecote with Childerly

Communion update: We re-introduced the common cup on Sunday 27 November. You are most welcome to take communion in both kinds if you would like to. If you would prefer to take only in one kind, that is, just the wafer, please be assured that this is a full communion, and is absolutely fine.
