Church Service -10am    We will continue with our 10am Service in church.  If you wish to book a place please continue to let Janet know you will be attending (Please let her know on office@wroughton.com or 01793 812050 by Friday lunchtime).  Things will be different to normal, so please make sure you have and wear a face mask; and be aware that you may not be able to sit in your ‘normal’ pew!  We will of course be following all the government and C of E guidelines with regard to social distancing, cleaning and other advice…..

The 10am telephone service will still take place, so please do dial in as usual – you will actively be taking part in the church service, albeit remotely- the technology has been tested …. and we pray that it behaves on Sunday!

  • When prompted, enter the room number, followed by # on your telephone keypad: 60527473 #
  • Finally, enter the guest PIN: 2656 #
  • You may have to listen to some announcements, but you will then be automatically joined to the conference call. Join in with the responses in the liturgy as you would normally.

Calls to ‘03’ numbers are charged at the standard national rate and are included in your ‘free minutes’ if you have a call-plan.

Monday Bible Study Group

This will start again on Monday, 14th September at 10.30 a.m. as a phone conference until we can meet in person once more. If you would like to join us you will be very welcome.

Spring Harvest 2021

Having thoroughly enjoyed Spring Harvest Home 2020, but having missed the “going away” aspect, a group of us are hoping to attend Spring Harvest 2021 from 10th-15th April 2021 (“Minehead 2”), and we’d love you to join us. The theme for this year is “Why we worship” (Roman’s 12:1). There’s an e-brochure with all the details about the event on the spring harvest.org web-site.

Booking opens at 8am on Tues 22nd Sept, and there is a Covid guarantee of your money back if you cancel up to 72 hours before the event starts for any Covid related reason. Capacity is currently limited due to social distancing requirements, so it’s likely to sell out fast! Karen Harrison


The Traidcraft website has some lovely face masks that are available at a discount – £3.20 instead of £4.00 – if ordered through Sally Parker.  If you’re missing the Traidcraft goods that are normally on sale after church, then do look at their website:  www.traidcraftshop.co.uk   Orders for any items can be sent to Sally by email:  sally2002@live.co.uk, and the discount she receives will be passed on to you.

Dorothy Leo (Jean Leo’s daughter)

has been busy clearing Jean’s home ahead of putting it on the market.  She has given Jean Ford and Ross Fralley a box of various items: Birthday, Christmas and assorted greetings cards, boxed (unopened) children’s toys, boxed unopened wall clock, boxed unopened scented candle etc. With local charities not currently taking donations Phill has agreed we can operate a ‘honesty box’ in church. People can put in what they like (donation wise) for any item(s) they are interested in.  All proceeds will go to the church’s general fund. The box of items will be in the baptistry corner.

Filling Station Van

The Filling Station is about to start it’s work with the homeless in Swindon again, so the van will need to be prepared each week. We are short of one person on the rota for doing this. The job involves an hour’s work at Legge House once every 8 weeks, with two volunteers working together. If you might be able to help, please contact Joan Orman on joan.orman@btinternet.com.

Thank you

The man from ‘Ayrshire’, Peter Still would like to thank you all for welcoming him into our services.  Normal services resume in his own Church from Sunday.  We give Peter all our blessings as he continues his worship in Ayrshire.

Cheryl’s Ordination

Ember Cards – as I now have a date for Ordination, I have designed and had printed my ember cards – ember cards are cards which asks for prayers for those being Ordained and for the parish where curacy will be served. The cards also include on the back a Bible verse chosen by the Ordinand. If you would like a card, please send me an email to curate@westbury-parish-church.org.uk and I will pop one in the post to you!
