Pastoral and Education

Latest News

Lent is a period of reflection when we can take stock of what our faith means to us. To assist in this exercise, we will be running a Lent Course (the York Course) on Wednesday evenings throughout Lent. For more information, please contact the parish office or email office@tetburychurch.co.uk.

House Groups

We run regular bible study sessions as house groups. In these sessions we aim to share experience by studying scripture together, and learn from one another, growing in our fellowship. The most popular of these sessions are the Emmaus Courses, but we also run Alpha Courses periodically.

Home Visiting

We aim to maintain contact with all members of our parish, including the lonely (not necessarily regular church goers) and those no longer able to get to church due to age or infirmity. As well as home visits, we regularly visit three nursing homes in Tetbury. We can provide Home Communion as part of a home visit or at nursing homes, and we also have members of the congregation who are trained bereavement visitors.

Prayer and the Town

As a church, we have a strong belief in the power of prayer. We have a regular prayer circle. We maintain a prayer board in the church if you have a particular prayer request. We also pray for the town; we distribute leaflets and pray each week for a particular street.

Schools

The church has responsibility for St Marys Primary School, and we also maintain strong links with Sir William Romney's Secondary School. The "Open the Book" group visits the primary school and acts out bible stories as part of the school assembly. Additionally, the church funds a youth officer who works closely with the children in the secondary school.
