Prayer for the Day

Mighty God,
by whose grace Elizabeth rejoiced with Mary
and greeted her as the mother of the Lord:
look with favour on your lowly servants
that, with Mary, we may magnify your holy name
and rejoice to acclaim her Son our Saviour,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
Amen.

Together in Prayer

Recent reports in the media have indicated that 1 in 4 people in our nation are now tuning into our online worship opportunities and that 1 in 20 people are turning to prayer, many of them being young adults in our society.

A PRAYER FOR ALL THOSE

AFFECTED BY CORONAVIRUS

Keep us, good Lord,

under the shadow of your mercy.

Sustain and support the anxious,

be with those who care for the sick,

and lift up all who are brought low;

that we may find comfort

knowing that nothing can separate us from your love

in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Zoom – There have been Zoom parties, Zoom drinks, Zoom conferences, Zoom choirs. Prior to March 23 it was a name barely heard of but now everybody seems to be using it and it has proved a very useful tool for coping with lockdown. It has certainly helped to achieve a little bit of social contact although it looks as though self-isolating rules are gradually being relaxed for many.

Compline Worship & other service details

 

MondayCompline - at 6.00pm via Three Valleys Team Facebook page (Rev. George Moody)

Community Life

 

Thank you from us all in the Wriggle Valley to the NHS and vital Key workers.   Residents of every age, throughout the benefice have expressed their gratitude to the above people from their homes in many colourful and creative ways to say ‘thank you’. Rainbows have long been believed to be a promise of good things to come and they are seen as a symbol of hope and promise. The posters that we see when we are out and about serve to remind us of how important these individuals are to us, ensuring whilst we stay safely in our homes that our post continues to be delivered, shelves are stocked with supplies, bins emptied and our sick ones cared for.

 

The Wriggle Valley Mothers’ Union

 

A coffee morning is planned on October 24th in the Methodist Church, Yetminster to enable them to do some much needed fund raising. The above charity, like so many others have suffered due to the Covid-19 epidemic. If you have time, do take a look at their wonderful range of cards plus other things that can be ordered on-line. I understand that delivery is very prompt and efficient.

 

Yetminster & Ryme Garden, Art & Craft Society

 

It was good to hear that the annual Plant Sale took place recently but in a different format this year! A handful of members generously offered to share their surplus plants with those eager to fill the gaps in their flowerbeds. Stalls were set up on doorsteps and with everyone keeping to the social distancing rules, a lovely selection of plants were offered without charge to those who got there in time!

And finally, Thank you!

 

Many thanks to George who delivered last Sunday morning’s service. Next Sunday at 10.00am it will be Richard Kirlew, and once again it may have to be pre-recorded and uploaded onto the Three Valleys facebook page, because of the difficulties currently being experienced with so many using ‘Zoom’ on a Sunday morning - please remember to watch.

 

 

Phase 1 of re-opening of churches has now began and Clergy only are able to go into their churches under new guidance issued by the House of Bishops, however this is only for limited purposes such as prayer and the streaming of services.

It is hoped that Services in the Three Valleys will return to normal in the not too distant future – as soon as we have news to share regarding this we will communicate this with all of you. There is a ‘draft’ plan of Services in the Three Valleys which is in place and currently on hold for the months of May/June. We are just waiting to be told that services may resume in our Churches and that we may open them once again for worship.

 

Prayers for the Climate

Bishop Nicholas, as C of E lead for the environment, and Archbishop Thabo Makgoba of Cape Town, the Anglican Communion's lead for the envi the first day of every month. They are asking people to consider joining them and Christians across the world. Learn more at www.prayandfastfortheclimate.org.uk

You may wish to use the weekly pattern of short readings given below, or choose a passage of your own. Here are a couple that I have extracted for you.

Sunday Morning

But now thus says the Lord, he who created you, O Jacob, he who formed you, O Israel: Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you. For I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Saviour. Isaiah 43.1-3a

Monday Morning

Do not let your hearts be troubled. Believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house there are many dwelling-places. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, so that where I am, there you may be also. And you know the way to the place where I am going.’ Thomas said to him, ‘Lord, we do not know where you are going. How can we know the way?’ Jesus said

And finally, you may like to light a virtual candle -Light a candle using the following link: -

(churchofengland.org/our-faith/light-candle)

By lighting a virtual candle, you're making space to pray.

You can light a candle online to pray for yourself, for a loved one
or for a situation. Whatever is going on, make space to pray in your life.

Lighting a candle can be a helpful way to pray.

Take a moment to quiet your mind and remove all distractions from around you.

Reflect on where you are in life, what you would like to pray for and the promise God has made to you.

Ask God to comfort you and speak to you.

Risen, ascended Lord,

fill your Church on earth with power and compassion,
that all who are estranged by sin
may find forgiveness and know your peace,
to the glory of God the Father.
Amen.

THE SEVENTH SUNDAY OF EASTER (THE SUNDAY AFTER ASCENSION DAY)

 

Together in Prayer

Salisbury Cathedral are currently promoting the following which may be of interest to some in the Benefice. As part of Thy Kingdom Come, the 10 day global wave of prayer starting May 21st, they are inviting you to pray together with the rest of the Diocese.

We want everyone to be Together in Prayer on Sunday 31st of May, Pentecost Sunday.

You can do this alone, with your family at home or with your wider family or church, via social media or Zoom.

From the "Five ways to get involved in Thy Kingdom Come 2020' Resources, to local ideas like a prayer tree or a book of prayers.

The national resources also feature a proposal to Light Up your Town or Village in Prayer and we are being encouraged to light a candle in a window and also in our gardens on the above evening.

This global wave of prayer that takes place every year in May is focusing this year on prayer and care in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.

Spirit of God, You established the dance of Creation;
bring life out of death
bring order out of chaos.
Call us to radical action:
  to care for the web of Creation
  to share our resources justly
  and to work for the renewal of our Mother, Earth.
Amen.

The Diocesan Environment Group has produced special prayers they have produced on Advent Sunday, which falls on the eve of the Summit. Bishop Nicholas urges all Churches in the Diocese to use them.

Salisbury Cathedral celebrates 800 years

On the 28th of April 1220 the first foundation stone of what was to be the new Salisbury Cathedral was laid and 800 years later, despite coronavirus the Cathedral has been celebrating this special anniversary.

While the present lockdown had put pay to many of the planned celebrations, the largest ever contemporary art exhibition held at the Cathedral has still been put in place and can be accessed virtually, and the anniversary itself was celebrated with a special online Service of Thanksgiving.

Although it is not possible to visit the above Cathedral at present it is possible that you may still go to their live streaming ‘Daily Reflection’ at 17:00 hours from Monday-Friday plus share in their Sunday Services – more details on the Salisburycathedral.org.uk/worship site.

Community Life

Many villages in the benefice seem to have witnessed a renewed sense of community and sharing of ideas: some of these include children’s toys, puzzles and activities, exercise routines and ways to keep fit, gardening tips and recipe exchanges. Long may it continue!

Thank you from us all in the Wriggle Valley to the NHS and vital Key workers.   Residents of every age, throughout the benefice have expressed their gratitude to the above people from their homes in many colourful and creative ways to say ‘thank you’. Rainbows have long been believed to be a promise of good things to come and they are seen as a symbol of hope and promise. The posters that we see when we are out and about serve to remind us of how important these individuals are to us, ensuring whilst we stay safely in our homes that our post continues to be delivered, shelves are stocked with supplies, bins emptied and our sick ones cared for.

 

And finally, Thank you!

 

Many thanks to Richard & Liz who tried very hard to deliver last Sunday morning’s ‘Rogation Service’ by ‘Zoom’.  Sadly, there were technical issues - so many all over the country, were trying to connect to Zoom at the same time. Richard has uploaded onto the Three Valleys facebook page the ‘paper notes’ giving the above service details if you wish to read these. Next Sunday it will be Tony who plans to pre-record and upload the service onto the Three Valleys facebook page - please remember to watch.

Phase 1 of re-opening of churches has now began and Clergy only are able to go into their churches under new guidance issued by the House of Bishops, however this is only for limited purposes such as prayer and the streaming of services.

We are just waiting to be told that services may resume in our Churches and that we may open them once again for worship.

Mothers' Union

A little information about the above organisation follows: -

We are a movement of over four million Christians in 84 countries worldwide. Mothers' Union is unique because our members work as volunteers in local communities, putting their faith into action by acts great and small, giving individuals in need a helping hand and enabling communities (of all faiths and none) to have the confidence and skills to transform their lives in a sustainable way.

The movement was started in 1876 by Mary Sumner to support mothers as they brought up their children as Christians.

Working with people of all faiths and none in 84 countries to promote stable marriage, family life and the protection of children. Prayer, resources, enabling, campaigning.

Our Mission:

  • To promote and support married life
  • To encourage parents in their role to develop the faith of their children
  • To maintain a worldwide fellowship of Christians united in prayer, worship and service
  • To promote conditions in society favourable to stable family life and the protection of children
  • To help those whose family life has met with adversity

 
Holidays available at Sidmouth and Rockley Park

Clergy and others working with families are invited to refer them for a week away by the sea at Sidmouth. Mothers' Union also has a        caravan available for referred families at Rockley Park. 

If there is anything that you would like for me to mention in the Pew Sheet please email the office This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. asap. I am hoping to continue working at the office on Monday mornings and Tuesday afternoons for the foreseeable future. Jeanette

A Message from the Clergy Team

There has been some concern expressed that the clergy are not seen so much in the villages during the lockdown. We are aware of this and want to assure you that we are still available for telephone consultations or via skype, zoom and all the other electronic methods of communication

Salisbury Cathedral celebrates 800 years

On the 28th of April 1220 the first foundation stone of what was to be the new Salisbury Cathedral was laid and 800 years later, despite coronavirus the Cathedral has been celebrating this special anniversary.

While the present lockdown had put pay to many of the planned celebrations, the largest ever contemporary art exhibition held at the Cathedral has still been put in place and can be accessed virtually, and the anniversary itself was celebrated with a special online Service of Thanksgiving.

Although it is not possible to visit the above Cathedral at present it is possible that you may still go to their live streaming ‘Daily Reflection’ at 17:00 hours from Monday-Friday plus share in their Sunday Services – more details on the Salisburycathedral.org.uk/worship site.

Community Life

Many villages in the benefice seem to have witnessed a renewed sense of community and sharing of ideas: some of these include children’s toys, puzzles and activities, exercise routines and ways to keep fit, gardening tips and recipe exchanges. Long may it continue!

Thank you from us all in the Wriggle Valley to the NHS and vital Key workers.   Residents of every age, throughout the benefice have expressed their gratitude to the above people from their homes in many colourful and creative ways to say ‘thank you’. Rainbows have long been believed to be a promise of good things to come and they are seen as a symbol of hope and promise. The posters that we see when we are out and about serve to remind us of how important these individuals are to us, ensuring whilst we stay safely in our homes that our post continues to be delivered, shelves are stocked with supplies, bins emptied and our sick ones cared for.

And finally, Thank you!

 

Many thanks to George for last Sunday morning’s service. Next Sunday it will be Richard – please remember to watch & join in! Richard is going to be transmitting this via Zoom (a Rogation Service with a difference is planned!) Remember to send an email requesting code to Richard if you wish to join in

Phase 1 of re-opening of churches has now began and Clergy only are able to go into their churches under new guidance issued by the House of Bishops, however this is only for limited purposes such as prayer and the streaming of services.

It is hoped that Services in the Three Valleys will return to normal in the not too distant future – as soon as we have news to share regarding this we will communicate this with all of you. There is a ‘draft’ plan of Services in the Three Valleys which is in place and currently on hold for the months of May/June. We are just waiting to be told that services may resume in our Churches and that we may open them once again for worship.

VE day celebrations - many of us enjoyed celebrating VE day on Friday 8th May (75th Anniversary Celebrations) and there was a great deal of coverage to watch on our TV’s regarding all of this. It was also lovely to see bunting and flags displayed in many villages, whilst many of us enjoyed the sunshine plus tea & cake from our gardens!

If there is anything that you would like for me to mention in the Pew Sheet please email the office This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. asap. I am hoping to continue working at the office on Monday mornings and Tuesday afternoons for the foreseeable future. Jeanette

The original Salisbury Cathedral was completed at Old Sarum in 1092 under Osmund, the first Bishop of Salisbury. In 1220 the foundations were laid for the Cathedral at the site it is today. The Works Department use many of the same materials and techniques to maintain and restore their building that were used by the craftspeople who built it 800 years ago.

The choir have stopped meeting during the ‘lock down’ but a few have been kept busy by recording a version of Somewhere Over the Rainbow in tribute to all our keyworkers. You can watch this on YouTube search Wriggle Valley Voices.

 

And finally, Thank you!

 

Many thanks to Tony & Nicola for last Sunday morning’s service. Next Sunday it will be George – please remember to watch & join in! George is going to try an informal style ‘Zoom Service’ so please contact George for Access Code.

It is hoped that Services in the Three Valleys will return to normal in the not too distant future – as soon as we have news to share regarding this we will communicate this with all of you.

There maybe some news next week regarding a ‘Rogation Service’ – more details to follow.

VE day celebrations were due to have taken place in many villages on Friday 8th May (75th Anniversary Celebrations) and now plans for this may well have been put on hold, but another idea that is being suggested is to decorate your front gardens with bunting and flags, get out your best bone china tea service, maybe listen to ‘Vera Lyn’ and enjoy a traditional celebratory tea with your family. Remember also to chat to your neighbours and friends over the fence, take lots of photos and make some memories.

I have copied the item below which I personally found quite interesting from The Diocese of Salisbury news page: -

On the end of the line

While the use of social media by our churches and their ministry teams has seen numbers engaging with worship, reflection and prayer increasing dramatically, for some of our community the internet is not a method of connection but something which other people do, or worse a source of frustration.

Original photo courtesy wallpaperflare

But this group is not being forgotten, and with churches closed and pastoral visiting not an option due to the social distancing measures, our ministry teams are being inventive.

In Royal Wootton Bassett, they have risen to the challenge and set up Phone Church.

The Revd Oliver Blease, Assistant Curate at St Bartholomew and All Saints Church explains:

"We have developed lots of online resources, however we identified around 100 households in our community who wouldn't have access to web resources or for whom this wouldn't have enabled the best connection to their faith and their church community.

"Often these are the most elderly for whom the telephone is a familiar and friendly piece of kit. It has provided access to family and friends throughout the decades and people with hearing or visual impairment are usually well set up with some form of better telephone access. So - the hardware was already installed, and the training done at the user-end, we just needed to mobilise the ministers!"

Oliver contacted the wider team, and some real collaborative ministry took place:

"We developed a plan for a new 'Phone Church' network. I used our parish records (with appropriate GDPR contact permissions) to divide those we identified as potentially welcoming and benefitting from this ministry into equal sized groups and distributed these details to individual ministers.

"Their experience also means there is no prescribed way in which the short acts of worship must take place, with each minister getting to know their congregation in one-to-one weekly phone calls and deciding what format would be most helpful to that person. Usually these calls are are 10 -15 minutes in length, including general chat and checking the person has everything they need, are feeling ok, etc.

"In this way we have adapted to make sure that no one is left out of our worship.

"I know of at least one household where the couple set up their home prayer space every week in front of the sofa, with a candle and a cross, so that they can worship together with the minister on speaker phone - for them this is their church.

"One parishioner said to me: "I don't feel alone" knowing that we have that phone service in the diary each week.

"So, while it can never be as good as in-person gathered worship, it is really good to know we're rising to the challenge and meeting people where they are."

Prayer for the Day

Almighty Father,
who in your great mercy gladdened the disciples
with the sight of the risen Lord:
give us such knowledge of his presence with us,
that we may be strengthened and sustained by his risen life
and serve you continually in righteousness and truth;
through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
Amen.

George Moody has a daily blog called Look Up in Lockdown, https://lookupinlockdown.blogspot.com

Five simple ways to deal with loneliness and isolation which I’ve copied from the Church of England website.

  1. Talk about how you feel. This may be difficult if you are self-isolating, but do use the telephone, internet, and social media. If you need to contact a counsellor this can be arranged by your GP, or via local agencies, or privately. The Samaritans are there 24 hours a day, every day, and it’s free to call them on 116 123.
  2. Focus on the things that you can change, not on the things you can’t.
  3. Look after yourself - physically, emotionally, spiritually. Plan in things that you enjoy at regular intervals during the day – a TV programme, a phone call, a book, a favourite dish, a game.
  4. Look after others. Even if only in small ways, but do what you can: a smile, a kind word, writing a letter or an email.

Prayer for the Day

Almighty Father,
you have given your only Son to die for our sins
and to rise again for our justification:
grant us so to put away the leaven of malice and wickedness
that we may always serve you
in pureness of living and truth;
through the merits of your Son Jesus Christ our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
Amen.

Message from the Reverend Tony Gilbert, Team Rector, 13th April 2020

Hi All

The clergy are going to respect the time honoured tradition of taking the week after Easter off.

Obviously we are modifying this to cope with emergencies etc but there won't be any evening prayers or thoughts for the day and we may be a bit slow(er) responding to e-mails.

I believe George intends to continue his blog because he has already prepared most of it.

Keep well.

BENEFICE PRAYER

Heavenly Father

In this time of great uncertainty,

we pray for our world, our nation, our villages and our neighbours.

In particular, we pray for those who suffer isolation,

that they may find friendship;

for those who have lost loved ones,

that they may find new hope;

for those whose work does not pay,

that they may find the help they need;

for those risking themselves to help others,

that they may find joy;

for those who give up time to care,

that they may find rest;

for those who have nowhere to go,

that they may find shelter;

for those with responsibility for leadership,

that they may know wisdom;

and for those who have lost all,

that they may find new life.

Finally, we pray for ourselves,

that we may know the saving, loving, peace-giving presence of Jesus.

Amen
