As part of preparations for welcoming Jesus again at Christmas Revd Ruth is suggesting that we might consider reading something through the season of Advent. The book chosen for this year is ‘Footsteps to Bethlehem’ by Bill Merrington. It is a gentle series of daily reflections for Advent, inviting you to journey towards Christmas on a pilgrimage of transformation.
Full details of the book and how to place an order are detailed on the accompanying flyer – click here for more information

The Revd Colby is currently Assistant Curate in the Benefice of Rothwell with Orton and Rushton with Glendon and Pipewell and Loddington and Thorpe Manor, a group of parishes near to Kettering in the Diocese of Peterborough. The licensing date is yet to be announced. Further information will appear on this website as it becomes available.

This is good news for us in the Fosse Group of Parishes as we have been working closely with Phil in the appointment process of a new Priest in Charge.
