Sociable Strollers

The Strollers became The Striders for the day when we supported the Ride and Stride Day on 9th September. We visited four churches on Portland: All Saints, Easton; Easton Methodist; St George’s and St Andrew’s (the “Avalanche” church) – though Easton Methodist was not strictly on the “approved list” – and were warmly welcomed in each one. We had guided tours of all the churches and a much-appreciated coffee stop in the Methodist church. All four churches amply repaid the time taken to visit them and I think we all found things to enjoy that we had not spotted in previous visits.

Speaking for myself, the Methodist church was an undiscovered gem; I had never been inside and I urge you to pay it a visit if you have not already done so: it is a real delight.  It contains a wonderful frieze of The Last Supper, carved from a single piece of Portland stone, and a delightful statue of the Madonna and Child carved out of stone by one of the inmates of the Verne in gratitude for the kindness shown to him by the church congregation.  Avalanche church contains a beautiful window designed and installed by Jon Callan, who is an ex-Diocesan glazier who still looks after our own windows at Holy Trinity. 

Our circuit ended with a lunch at The George, on Reforme, where we were delighted to be joined by one of our ex-churchwardens, Josie Butcher, who is currently the churchwarden at All Saints, Easton.

Our next walk will be the last for this season and will be on October 14th, starting from the Brewers Arms in Martinstown.  See “Whats On” for further details (including our Christmas lunch on Saturday 2nd December 2017 at the Nothe Gardens Cafe) as they become available.

    Thought for the Week 24th June 2018

    It seems strange that the disciples should turn to Jesus for help during a storm on the sea of Galilee. After all they were the fishermen. They knew the angry waters and the gusting winds. Jesus was a landlubber with no touch of the sea in his veins. How could he help? Somehow they had a glimpse of him as Lord of the wind and sea, as Lord of all. We are challenged by our gospel today to call on him, to have faith in him, to live by that faith with boundless confidence in him because he is our Father.

    Holy Trinity Church Roof

    All the scaffolding is down and we can report that the roof is now, as far as we are aware, waterproof. This of course came with a huge cost but needed to be done. We are now applying for grants to see if we can cover more of the cost of £40.000 to pay for it. Last December we received £10,000 from the Muton Trust for which we are extremely grateful. Any kind donations thankfully received! We are about £12,000 short of our target.

Vicar’s letter for June 2018

“CLOSE ENCOUNTERS When Moses came down from the mountain his face shone. He had been close to, and had spoken with, God. (Read Exodus 34:29-35.) Elijah had a similar experience, again, on a mountain top. After a raging storm he recognised God’s presence in the calm and peace, in the ‘still, small voice’. So we sing: ”
