From Tim, our Rector:


Bleadon Church Notices: Sunday 8th May 2022

On Monday Craft and Chat will be open between 10am and 12noon in the Church Room.

For more information please contact Sara on sara.hughes6@btinternet.com or 01934 811 008

Also on Wednesday at 8pm you are welcome to join with us in “Night Prayer” either individually or on zoom.

Next Sunday we will gather at 10.15am in the church for a Sung Eucharist.

Jubilee Preparations:

On Sunday 29th May we will be holding our Civic Service of Celebration and Thanksgiving to mark the Platinum Jubilee of our Queen.

This service will start at 11am and will be our focal act of worship for that day.

  • As we are hoping that a good number of people will attend, we are offering to book reserved seating for any members of our community who especially need good seating because of mobility issues, frailty or illness. If you fall into this group and would like a seat reserved for you, please contact Sue Boddington via suesmithstepinside@hotmail.co.uk or 01934 813 200.
  • Also, for this service we are planning to gather a group of singers to sing some music written specially for the Jubilee. Thank you to all of you who have expressed interest. We want to get as many of you together as we can on Sunday 8th May at 4pm in the church room to have a run through together and get a feel of the music. All are welcome to come and join in. If you want to sing but can not come at that time, please let me know as I still want to include you. The music has been written so that it can be sung very simply or with additional harmonies etc. We need to work out what level is right for us. If you are used to singing harmony, please let me know as this will help us pitch it right.

On Sun 5th June, as part of the Bleadon big lunch, the organisers are planning some dancing and inviting all to join in! There will be live music on the day and the plan is to get lots of us line dancing!

Sue Boddington is helping us all find our feet and get ready.

On 9th, 16th and 23rd May at 7pm, Sue will lead some warm up dancing in the Youth Club. All are welcome at £5 each. All the money will be donated to the church. Please ring Megan on 07751 058 917 to join.
