Wigboroughs’ February Church Update

Wigboroughs’ February Church Update

In the entrance porch of St. Stephen’s Church, Gt Wigborough, we now have a Prayer tree. If you have a prayer request for yourself, or someone else, you are invited to hang a leaf upon our prayer tree with your request and we will include it in our prayers on a Sunday morning. You will find the leaves and pens in the porch. Your request need not be named; we can still pray for you.

Another new event is the Café service which we are starting on 28th February!  This will be relevant for all ages, with particular activities for children.

The services planned for the next few weeks are…

  • 31 Jan., 10am, Benefice service at Rowhedge church (postcode: CO5 7EB), led by Revd Patrick McEune
  • 7 Feb., 11am, LW, Holy Communion led by Revd Brian Snelling
  • 14 Feb., 9.30am, GW, Morning Prayer with Bible discussion led by Anne and Peter Owen
  • 21 Feb, 9.15am, GW, Holy Communion led by Revd Patrick McEune
  • 28 Feb, 10am, GW, Café-style all age worship with activities for children, led by Anne and Peter Owen

Messy ChurchThe next Messy Church will take place at 2.30pm on Saturday April 2nd at St Stephens church, Great Wigborough.  This is the weekend after Easter, so hopefully lots of families will be able to come!  We are planning this event together with Peldon, and will be holding the following Messy Church in Peldon at Harvest time.

L33 Zeppelin in LIttle WigboroughPlans for the Zeppelin Commemoration event around Copt Hall, Little Wigborough, on September 24 and 25 are progressing, with the National Trust keen to be involved.  Contacts from the WW1 Aerodrome at Stow Maries are also helping us.  Please let us know if you would like to volunteer and be involved in any way!


With best wishes,
Anne and Peter
