New Family Service!
Eastington Church has recently started a new style of informal and relaxed worship with our Rector Steve Harrison. This service differs from our usual approach to worship, but will have many of the essential ingredients that you would expect from a Church service, such a time for prayer and reflection, as well as traditional and modern music. We will also share the communion during the service, and have the opportunity to meet friends after the service when refreshments will be served.
This is an exciting time at Eastington Church as we begin our journey to offer something new to your community. We hope that as many of you will get involved so that our worship is shaped into what you would like from your local parish Church.
Our next informal communion service with audio-visuals will be on Sunday 19th May at 11.15am, followed by refreshments, where everyone will receive a warm and friendly welcome.
Upcoming Church Services
There are a number of services taking place at Eastington Church and across the Stroudwater Team during the next couple of months. In particular, we are pleased to be joined by the Bishop of Tewkesbury on Palm Sunday. (see below)
In addition, there are a number of services taking place across the Stroudwater Team throughout Holy Week and Easter Day, further details of which are on the Notice Board at Eastington Church.
Eastington Church Annual Meeting
Thursday 4th April 2019 at 7pm
Our Annual Meeting will take place on Thursday 4th April 2019 at 7pm at Eastington Church. All parishioners are encouraged to attend to discuss and vote upon matters which will have a significant bearing upon the future of the Church within our village.
There will be two vacancies for Churchwardens and nine vacancies for the Church Council, including a Secretary and Treasurer. At present, we do not have anyone who is intending to stand as Churchwarden or Treasurer. Therefore unless individuals are willing to come forward to stand as a Churchwarden or Treasurer, the Church faces an uncertain future.
If you would like to offer whatever talents you possess to ensure our Church is conserved, maintained and enhanced for the enjoyment of present and future generations, please come along to our Annual Meeting at Eastington Church on Thursday 4th April 2019 at 7pm, or alternatively you are invited to have an informal discussion with our Rector Steve Harrison, who can be contacted on 07466 858975 and at email@example.com.
