We travel by coach to our destination, usually by the sea, and arrive back in time for dinner at The Shropshire Inn.
The cost is £5 per person for the coach and dinner for the retired people of the village and a little more for others,
To cover the cost I manage two weekly lotteries, based on the National Lottery Lotto. There is one winner on each lottery and they each receive £40 prize money.
There are 49 people in each lottery and they each pay £5 a month which is collected by standing order.
People inevitably drop out of the lottery for various reasons, at this particular time I have a considerable number of vacancies on each lottery. In the past, I have been able to fill the vacancies but on this occasion, I would greatly appreciate it if anyone would like to contact me with a view to joining the lottery
The Outing has been running for more than 60 years. I took it over some years ago to keep alive the tradition started by Horace Wilshaw.
It would be most unfortunate if we were unable to continue with our annual day out, I think It has become an important feature in the life of the village.
If you would like to join the lottery please call me on 780550.
Some thoughts on home worship for TRINITY SUNDAY
This week's Bell Ringing is from Enville Staffordshire
The majesty of God. Holy, holy, holy is the Lord Almighty;
the whole earth is full of his glory.
HYMN: “Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty”
Pray the Collect of the day.
Almighty and eternal God, you have revealed yourself
as Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and live and reign in the perfect unity of love.
Hold us firmly in this faith, that we may know you in all your ways
and evermore rejoice in your eternal glory, who are three Persons in one God,
now and forever. Amen.
Read the Epistle from 2 Corinthians chapter 13 verses 11-13.
Read the Gospel from St. Matthew chapter 28 verses 16-20
Hymn: “A man there lived in Galilee”

Pray this prayer
Lord God almighty, you have given us a vision of your holiness, and thereby of our own unworthiness to be your witnesses; touch, we pray, our lips with your cleansing fire; so that cleansed and hallowed, we may go out into the world with the authority of your commission; for Jesus Christ’s sake. Amen.
And the Lord’s Prayer
Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come,
Your will be done on earth as in heaven. Give us today pour daily bread.
Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us.
Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom and the power and the glory are yours now and forever. Amen.
HYMN: “We have a gospel to proclaim”
Glory be to you O God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
You have power, wisdom and majesty: receive from us honour, glory, worship and blessing. Great and marvellous are your works, just and true are your ways:
Blessing and honour and glory and power be to him who sits on the throne,
And to the lamb through the one eternal Spirit, now and forever. Amen.
