Words from our Rev. Jo:

If you want to speak to someone at this difficult time, please do get in touch. We can chat, listen and point you towards other resources you might need. The church in Broadwindsor is there for everyone and we are always open.
Do give me a ring on 01308 867816 or email me if you need me.

A prayer for our church and our Diocese:

God our Father, renew our hope. 

By the Holy Spirit’s power, strengthen us to pray readily, serve joyfully and grow abundantly, 

rejoicing in Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen. 

Thanks, Jo
