We are an Anglican
church with two lovely historic buildings in different parts
of the parish:
We share the following
Core Purposes -
Baptisms, Weddings and Funerals
Baptism and Thanksgiving
* One of them was baptised or
prepared for confirmation in the parish;
The funeral would be a service of
thanksgiving with a personal tribute to the person's life.
Because of time pressures at the Crematorium, I encourage
you to use the church for a short service. Obviously I hope
we never need to meet under sad circumstances but if we did
I want you to know that your church cares very much and
wants to support and comfort you.
THE RECTOR'S SEPTEMBER 2016 MESSAGE
over a year ago I moved to the tranquil village
of Hodnet to become Rector of St Luke’s and the Chapel of
the Epiphany Peplow.
I can honestly say I had no idea what that year would
bring. Within a few
months I was covering the Parishes of Shawbury, Stanton
Although it was a
bit hectic at times, I
have loved every day, while being encouraged and supported
by the Church

Covering five churches
means five times the paper work, and I could never do the
without the help of Claire Crackett, who somehow keeps me
To help with the workload the Bishop has appointed the Rev Andy Smith from Telford to work alongside me for the next year. I have no doubt Andy will be welcomed just as I was, as we work together to build God’s Kingdom.
Previously I had
announced that there would
be an Alpha course starting shortly, unfortunately it has
been put on hold as I
am having a hip replacement in September and will be out
of action for a few
Time passes so
quickly, already the “Summer”
is nearly over, I wonder did we miss it? Most of us love
the sun, it makes us
feel better and somehow happier, but it doesn’t last. Why
not take the
opportunity to meet the “Son” who will change our lives,
who will make us
happier, who will make us feel worthwhile in this world,
and who will never
I look forward to
the next year working
together in the parishes, and sharing God’s Love with you
