October Services

A new pattern for services in church in October We are going to double the number of Sunday morning services in each parish church. This has necessitated a change in both the time and pattern of services.

Volunteer Position

Visitor Co-ordinator for the Buckingham Archdeaconry Clergy Charity The Archdeacon of Buckingham’s Clergy Charity is a small Charity set up to provide financial support to clergy in the Archdeaconry, also their widows in times of need.  The Trustees comprise the Archdeacon of Buckingham, the Bishop of Buckingham and three Lay members.  Whilst the needs of the clergy are generally well known to the Archdeacon, the clergy widows are personally visited by lay people in order to provide both pastoral support and to establish if the Charity can help with any specific significant financial issue. Currently there are six visitors based in different parts of the county who have been co-ordinated on a voluntary basis by a Visitor Co-ordinator for more than a decade.  The Co-odinator now wishes to relinquish the voluntary Co-ordinator's role though will continue to visit a small number of clergy widows.  The Trustees are therefore looking for someone to continue with this valuable work.  Specifically, this entails the responsibility...

Messy Church – 12th July

Now that public worship is once again allowed, we are delighted to announce that we will be holding a Messy Church this Sunday (July 12th) at 4pm until 4.30 Of course, it won’t be able to look the same as we will still need to follow social distancing guidelines.

Please stay...

Children’s Prayer

This is a prayer that the 7-8 year olds at Cuddington and Dinton School helped to write. I thought you might like to read it. Thank you God for change, it helps us grow. We know things happen when we are not expecting them, but we always learn from them. Change often happens when you are not ready for it. You need to stay calm and take a deep breath because change can be good, Lord help us to stay calm. Sometimes we worry about change and this worrying can be unhelpful. Worries feel like a jumble in your head. Help us to remember that worries are often just inside your head and you need to let them float away on a cloud. We are thankful for the time we have spent with our families and we are grateful for how hard every one has tried to make things as normal as possible. Amen...
