About us

Mission Action Plan Workshop
Sunday, 25th November • 3pm – 5.30pm • Fitz Village Hall
We would love to invite you to spend an afternoon with us as we encourage
each other, celebrate God at work in our communities, think about how we
might develop and grow new ministries and... wait for it... eat lots of cake!
Our aim is to construct a Mission Action Plan together – a helpful and living
document that sets out who we are, what we do as Severn Loop, and where
God is leading us – both as a whole, and as individual communities. Please
do join us – we are hoping for good representation from all of our churches.
In order to help us get the levels of cake just so, please do let Mary-Lou,
Hannah or your Church Warden know if you intend to come along. Rest
assured you'll be home before Strictly!

From 2nd December Montford Nativity Diorama
This diorama will be on display at Montford Church from Advent Sunday, 2nd
December. This hand-made miniature in six scenes, which brings the
wonderful Christmas story to life, can be viewed each Sunday in December
from 11am – 4pm. Admission is free, there will be refreshments and the
church will be warm.

Dementia-Friendly Churches
You'll see we now carry an extra logo on the Loop! All our PCCs have agreed
three action points for the next year to help us continue growing in this area
of our mission. We have appointed Joyce Jagger as our Severn Loop Coordinator,
we will be placing information about living with dementia in the
churches, and we'll be displaying the logo. All of that means we have been
granted a Diocesan Certificate. Look out for your church’s on display!

Illuminate: your local Christian Bookshop
Illuminate is the Christian bookshop on Wyle Cop and they are asking you to
pay them a visit and to bring to the shop any Christian books you no longer
need which can then be sold on. The Bookshop is under threat of an increase of rent so it is up to Christians and others to support it.

 Prayer Shawls

If anyone needs a knitting project, we could do with a few more prayer shawls.  Ask Mary-Lou (01743 851375) or Joyce Jagger (01743 236517) for details


If you have any church-related announcements to go in the next or future
editions of Loop, please send them to me before the third Sunday in the
month prior to publication month. Thank you.
