News from Biddlesden

REVEREND LIZ - As you will have seen throughout The Link this month, fellow benefice villages have been saying their thanks and farewells to Reverend Liz. On behalf of Biddlesden, I’d like to add our thank you’s to Liz for her time and effort in preparing and taking or helping arrange services, Christenings, weddings and funerals. And for her efforts in setting up and helping other groups held outside of Church, such as the Toddler Church and Bible Study groups. She will be missed, especially by the children, who have enjoyed making Easter gardens or baking with her and joining in with harvest and Christmas Eve services. We wish Liz all the best in her move to her new home and parish.

Please contact Carole or me if you would like to attend Liz’s goodbye party on 25th August and can bring some food, or if you would like to contribute to a leaving gift.

SERVICES - There are no services at Biddlesden St Margaret’s for the rest of the summer. However, you will be very welcome at any of the other benefice services.

From September until a replacement Vicar can be appointed, there will be fewer services across the benefice, particularly Communion services. However, benefice PCCs will be working hard to keep up as many of the current services as possible.
