BRING & BUY COFFEE MORNING
Avril and Sylvia would like to express their gratitude to everyone who came and supported their recent coffee morning in Salwarpe church and contributed items for sale. Thanks are also due to their friend Judith for helping with the refreshments. The event raised £142 for our church funds – well done to Avril and Sylvia for all their hard work in organising such an enjoyable morning.
Please put the date in your diaries for this year - Sunday 7 October
CHANGES TO OUR SERVICE PATTERN
Please make careful note of the services shown on our Services page, as we continue in our winter pattern until the end of March to save on heating bills. There will be no 8.30am Morning Prayer service at Salwarpe, which means that for two Sundays we need only use one church.
PARISH FELLOWSHIP LUNCH
Our next Fellowship Lunch is on Tuesday 20 March at 12.00 for 12.30pm at Churchfields Barn Café. Further dates have been arranged for Wednesdays 11 April and 16 May. Please let Barbara Jauncey (01905 454396) know in advance if you would like to come - transport can be arranged.
The final amount of cash raised from the Burns Night came to £1,280.00 split between Droitwich and Salwarpe, £640.00 each - a good result from a good evening.
Thank you to everyone who supported the evening and helped to make it such a success. However, should we have another such event, I think we all need to brush up on our ‘Strip the Willow’ technique!
MIDSUMMER MUSIC EVENT - 2 JUNE 2018

PALM SUNDAY SERVICE
Procession from Salwarpe Village Hall at 10am
The Palm Sunday procession on 25 March to St Michael’s church, Salwarpe will be led by a very special guest. Jinx the donkey will be there to remind us that Jesus rode into Jerusalem on a donkey. Jinx has been involved in Palm Sunday services for many years at Salwarpe, famously refusing to budge when the Bishop of Worcester took the service some years ago. Jinx lives a very happy life at Gloverspiece Mini Farm, an 11 acre canal-side property at Ladywood near Droitwich, which is home to a variety of rescued animals (http://gloverspieceminifarm.co.uk).
