Tewkesbury, Apperley & Winchcombe Churches are reopening on 23rd May !!!
For those of you who don't know - Debs Harrison is a lay preacher and a professional sculptor. We were due to have an exhibition of some of her pieces at church in June 2020 - it would have been a fantastic privilege for TMC to have her work in our church - she is such a talented lady. Let us hope we can rearrange for the future.
The is a photo of a bird with wings outstretched which Debs was working on when we were there. The finished result is quite spectacular!
The video is particularly good and revealing of Deb's character and how she interprets each piece of stone (and beautifully filmed by one of our ministers Phil Summers).
Blessings everyone, particularly for this Easter time.
To mark RemembranceDay, twenty cast members from AnticDisposition's First World War adaptation of Shakespeare's Henry V have come together to record, in their own homes, the song 'Non Nobis' from the production.

Making equipment for Care-Home workers
A lady in conrtact with Winchcombe contacted care homes to see what they needed. The answer came back asking for headbands to protect their ears from the face masks they are having to wear. Their ears are getting very sore and headbands with buttons mean they can loop the face masks round the buttons rather than their sore ears. They need 30 - 40 because they need to wash the reusable equipment regularly.
Many Care homes are crying out for headbands and masks and they can use home made cloth ones, hospitals seem to only able use headbands.
Please conctact you local Care homes and Hospices near you to arange delivery, they will be greatful for your support.
