Reformation Day

On 31st October 1517 Martin Luther published his 95 theses, criticising the corruption in the Church at that time.  On that date this year, the 500th anniversary, Shrewsbury Roman Catholic Cathedral hosts an ecumenical celebration.  First, the Annual General Meeting of Churches Together in Shropshire is at 5.30 pm at Orchard Café in Belmont, behind the Cathedral.  This is followed by Ecumenical Vespers in the Cathedral.

Autumn Book

A good read: “'Does the Bible Really Say That? Challenging our assumptions in the light of Scripture” by Mark Woods, published by Monarch Books.   Look for the date when we discuss it.  Ask for help to get a copy if necessary.

Remember

A service when we remember those we love but see no longer is to be held at 3.00 pm on Sunday 5th November at Leaton Church.  Look in all our churches for a paper on which you can add the names of any you would like mentioned at that service.

Last year the collection in the Severn Loop Churches of nearly-new clothes raised

over two thousand pounds for the work of Red Cross with Syrian refugees.  Diana

Barnett is now organising a collection of - books - long-play records - and CDs

for the work of Oxfam overseas. 

Please bring them to any of our churches from Sunday 1st to Sunday 15th October.

Oxfam’s appeal is for many projects round the world including the Mexico earthquake victims.

Thank you.

What a great opportunity to thin out that huge collection of things you are never going to refer to again!
