April Newsletter

Dear Friends,

Happy Easter! It is such a wonderful time of the year, with our gardens, hedgerows, churchyard and surrounding countryside bursting into life. The daffodils have been especially lovely this year. Spring has definitely arrived and it is so good to have warmer days and longer nights again after a rather wet and windy winter. We are now entering Easter season in the church calendar, a time to celebrate and rejoice, giving thanks to Jesus for all that he did for us.  Easter gives us great hope, encouragement, joy and peace, no matter how difficult things may have been for us over the past year. The Easter message – that Jesus is alive and has defeated death – gives us tangible hope that doesn’t disappoint; and it gives us the strength we need whatever we are facing. Easter is a reminder to us that just as spring flowers are bursting into new life, we too can look forward with hope. Jesus who was crucified has risen. By the power of God, Jesus rose from the dead and is alive, and in his rising allows us not only to start afresh here and now in this life but offers us the hope and promise of eternal life with him.

Wishing you a very happy April,

God Bless,


Clare Coates,
Lead Minister for Caldecote with Childerley, Dry Drayton and Hardwick
