REGULAR EVENTS

On the 2nd Monday of each month, a Julian Group will meet. A Julian Group meet in the Quiet Room of the Church Centre at 2.30pm for contemplative prayer and meditation using an extended period of silence (around 30 minutes).

A newly-formed Prayer Group will meet in St Mary’s Church Centre to pray for the life of the five churches in our Benefice during the Vacancy, for those taking on responsibilities during the Vacancy and for those who may respond to our need for a Rector. Dates and times yet to be decided upon.

On the 4th Monday of each month, Soup-er Lunch from 12noon until 1.30pm. Soup, bread and cheese will be offered in the downstairs hall of the Church Centre. All welcome.

Every Tuesday, in St Mary the Virgin, Bishops Lydeard: Bellringers Practice for young bellringers and/or learners from 6pm to 7.30pm. Main Practice is from 7.30pm to 9pm. PLEASE NOTE THAT, AT PRESENT, THE BELLS CANNOT BE RUNG DUE TO DAMAGE TO THE STONEWORK PINNACLES ON THE TOP OF THE TOWER.

Every Friday, in St Mary the Virgin, Bishops Lydeard: choir Practice from 5-6pm in the Church

On the 1st Friday of every month, in the Church Centre at St Mary the Virgin, Bishops Lydeard:

Coffee Morning, from 10am until 12noon.

On Wednesdays, every three weeks, in Combe Florey Village Hall:

Bookmart from 2.30 to 4.30pm.

On the 1st Tuesday in every month, in West Bagborough Village Hall:

Coffee, tea and cakes plus a Bookmart from 10.30am until midday.

MONTHLY QUIET DAYS

Dates: usually the last Friday in the month, but due to unavoidable circumstances the NEXT PROPOSED QUIET DAY FRIDAY, 3rd MAY – 10.30am-3.30pm, SUBJECT TO WEATHER CONDITIONS. THEREAFTER, THE LAST FRIDAY IN EACH MONTH. Everyone welcome.

Place: 20 Lethbridge Place, the home of Penny and Michael Gale. There is a number limit of 10 participants.

Time: 10.30am until 4pm with either a “talking” lunch, or a silent lunch, and ending with a Eucharist, followed by tea and cake!

Cost: no charge. Drinks are provided, but bring a packed lunch. Some people like to chat over lunch, although there is provision for a silent lunch if that is preferred.

These quiet days are usually led either by Penny Gale, Revd. Maureen Young, Jenny Greenwood or Margaret Gover. The Archdeacon of Taunton has offered to lead one of our Quiet Days, but no date has yet been decided upon.
