Thoughts from the Vicarage 131


Lent Courses continue this week, both on Monday at Mellor Cottage, and Wednesday at 7.00pm. via Zoom. We don’t have any more of the USPG course booklets but understand that they are available online.
Next Sunday is Palm Sunday and there will be blessing and distribution of palms at both All Saints and St Michaels.
During Holy week there will be services every day around the Benefice as advertised in Village Views (full details here next week).
On Easter day (17th April) we are managing to hold an Easter Eucharist in all three of our churches, but with Julie’s absence and the unavailability of a priest from outside the benefice we are having to adjust service times slightly. The services will therefore be:
  9.00 am  All Saints, East Garston
10.15 am  St James, Eastbury 
11.30 am  St Michael & All Angels, Lambourn
(Please bear a thought for Christine as she rushes from church to church)
Please make a note of these as they are different to those previously advertised.
With the high incidence of Covid in West Berkshire, particularly in the Lambourn Valley, and the discontinuing of free Lateral Flow Tests, it is more important than ever that as many people as possible are fully vaccinated. Keep an eye out for Graham Jones our chemist in Lambourn as he does have slots available at times.
Best wishes
(aka Mr Vicarage)
