The February Connected is available to download!
Canon David Winter reflects on gambling abdication in the UK today, and Christian values relating to the transfer of money. Tony Service notes that February this year is an ‘Ordinary Month’ except for Racial Justice Sunday which is held on 10th February.

Barbara Richardson provides information on ‘Away From It All Holidays’, a worthy charity supported by the Mothers Union gives free holidays to poorer families who wouldn’t be able to get away otherwise. Barbara, with Martin Millward, report on the Monday & Wednesday Home Groups at St Wilfrid’s. Both groups encourage Christian fellowship and provide support for those who may be insecure or lonely. Martin also shares his personal views on Prayers.

Claire Hodgson updates us on the work of the Wellbeing CafĂ© that continues to grow; from the outside it appears to be full of fellowship, fun, laughter and mutual support. Jean Goodenough recalls a talk given by Barry Walmsley to the Brayton WI on Civil Engineering. And finally I report on Linda Butler’s excellent Yoga Classes held in the Parish Hall – Downward Dog anyone? I also report on the mission of the Church Cleaners, and share some guidance on surviving the isolation of village life.
