Messages from around the Benefice

Sunday May 3rd undefined

Thanks for the service on the website, reminding us that we are still in Eastertide, but also that this Sunday’s Gospel is all about Jesus the Good Shepherd. This was the theme of Rev Samuel’s address in the service on YouTube from Magor Ministry Area – I’m sure many of us will have watched it – or saved it for later, that very useful feature of catch-up TV!

The link on the website to Bishop Cherry’s weekly message is also very encouraging – do have a read, it’s well worth it – so good to have her in the Diocese.

Keep safe and well everyone – and maybe see you at the Magor Morning Prayer 10am on Wednesday, or at one of the Chepstow services, or perhaps you’re enjoying the services from Bishopstow – there’s so much to choose from!

Warmest Easter greetings


Thank you letter received by the Church and Benefice wardens

Dear Steve,
I was delighted to hear that your parish has paid its Q1 Parish Share in full. This is a tremendous achievement in the present circumstances and I am extremely grateful for the level of commitment to our diocesan life that this represents. Please pass on my thanks to your congregation(s) for their generous giving. As I said in a previous letter, this readiness to give signals your willingness to share what you have to support the life of the wider church and does much to cement our life togther as a Diocesan family. Thank you.
Be assured of my prayers in this difficult and challenging situation, and my thanks for all that you are doing to sustain one another in your prayer, worship and Christian fellowship.
