March Newsletter

Dear Friends,

It is wonderful to see so many daffodils emerging, brightening up our hedgerows, gardens and churchyard. I am looking forward to warmer and longer days in the coming weeks! Looking ahead, we are once again fundraising for the church at Childerley Hall’s Open Gardens on Easter Monday, from 2-5pm – please see ‘What’s on’ below, for further details. Childerley gardens are particularly beautiful in the Spring, and all are most welcome to come and explore the grounds and drop in to the chapel for tea and cake!

We are nearly at our half way point in Lent, with Mothering Sunday on March 10 this year. Please do join us at one of our services in the Lordsbridge Team, as there will be no church service in Caldecote this year. Mothering Sunday is a time for us to celebrate, honour and give thanks for our mothers and for all who have cared for us. For many of us, it’s a hard day as we may be remembering those no longer with us; or we may have no immediate family. No matter what our circumstances, we all belong to God’s family. A family which stands by one another and looks after one another, no matter what.

I hope you have a wonderful March, and a very Happy Easter!

God Bless,


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