Hi everyone,

Half term is over and we really rounded it off with a great morning service and a really encouraging evening of prayer in the evening. All our groups and activities are back to normal now so I will hopefully see you soon around in the week.

I just wanted to say a big thanks again to everyone who came out for the High Littleton skittles night and to help with the Messy Church in Paulton. It’s great to have opportunities to spend time with one another and also to share fun, joy and the gospel in our communities.

This week we will be beginning to discuss the sermon on the mount at Men in Shed, so you are welcome to join us if you are interested in exploring this passage.

Also, just a reminder that some of us are off to New Wine in July (22nd to 28th). You are welcome to book as part of Paulton Benefice and camp with us if you want the full immersion experience. But I would encourage all of you to come for at least one day to experience teaching and worship on a huge scale!

Morning prayer is taking place at 9.30am Wednesday in Paulton and Thursday in High Littleton. It begins with 15 minutes of quiet reflection, followed by Common Worship morning prayer.

The Church of England have updated their Morning Prayer APP.  You can now listen to morning prayer from the app. I would encourage you all to take this up as a daily practice, it is a great way to grow a pattern of prayer and learn the rhythm of responses each day.

Every blessing to you all.
