Bumper April Newsletter

Glyn has put together a bumper newsletter for April.  There is a lot going on in our villages – particularly as we move towards the Jubilee Bank Holiday.

You’ll have had a copy through your door but here’s a pdf version.

The newsletter is a very good way of telling locals about activities that you are planning.  If you want an item including in the newsletter give Glyn a call on 01664 841184   or email  [email protected]

Changes to how the local church parishes work together

The Church in Gaddesby comes under the Framland Deanery – the group of parishes in the North East of the Leicester Diocese.   As it looks ahead to 2020 the Deanery needs to grow and increase its mission work in the villages.  A plan (see link below) has been formulated to make the best use of the people involved.  The plan proposes to:-

  1. divide the Deanery into three parts, or families, where the parishes will work together
  2. establish a “Deanery Pastoral Committee” – to help them do so
  3. determine who are the specialists focusing on a particular area of the Church’s mission and ministry across the Deanery and
  4. encourage each church community to provide an annual ‘plan’ for its own mission and ministry.

 The three proposed families are:-

  • North    – Belvoir; High Framland; The Ironstone Villages
  • Middle  – Old Dalby; Asfordby; Ab Kettleby; Holwell; Melton Mowbray Team; South Framland
  • South – The South West Framland Group (including Gaddesby); Whatborough; Loddington

 The report and the map can be seen by following the links below.
