Wednesday 23rd August
Everyone is welcome to attend the quiet study day hosted by East Akeley Mission Partnership to be held at Prestwold Church.
The day will be led by Val Joyce
who is a member of the Diocesan Spirituality Team.
Please bring a picnic lunch and we will provide drinks.
There is no need to book and no charge.
Can you please consider car sharing as the car park for the church is not that large, and the Mission Partnership is made up of 10 churches
(Swithland, Woodhouse, Woodhouse Eaves, Quorn, Mountsorrel x 2, Barrow, Walton, Wymeswold and Prestwold)
The full address is Prestwold Hall, Prestwold Lane, Loughborough.
Post Code is LE12 5SQ. For info when you turn in through the large gates, a short way down the drive is a turning on the right. This is the car park for the church. If you come to a fork in the drive, you have missed the turn!

Another year and yet another Good Friday Walk. We got a bit spread out at times but regrouped at the four churches for a short reflection on this year’s theme of the stations of the cross. Followed by a must have hot cross bun and tea! According to Revd Rob’s phone app it was 8 miles from Barrow to Wymeswold via Walton, Prestwold and Hoton.

When did you last dial 999 for the Fire and Rescue Service? Probably, you never have done. Although many of us will have called Police or Ambulance in an emergency, it is fortunate that we need Fire and Rescue less often.
But whether it is for a large factory fire in Leicester, or a road traffic collision on the M1, or a chip-pan fire at home, firefighters are ready to respond. They risk their lives to save life and property.
The first fire chaplain was appointed in London in 1844. We are there to offer support to the firefighters, their retired colleagues and their families. They support one another extremely well, especially after very traumatic incidents, but we are there for them too, showing God’s love and care for them, at their local station.
