September Newsletter

Dear Friends,

I hope you had a good summer and are now feeling refreshed and renewed, ready for all that is in store this Autumn. The festival of Michaelmas, or St Michael and All Angels has been celebrated in parishes throughout Britain for centuries. Michaelmas is also traditionally seen as one of the quarter days of the calendar, marking, in medieval times, the end of the farming year with the harvesting and gathering of crops. Falling on September 29, near the equinox, it is also associated with the beginning of Autumn and days gradually getting shorter. Celebrating Michaelmas is one way to remind ourselves of the changing pattern of the seasons. For Christians, it is also a reminder of the light of God’s love shining into the darkness as we approach winter.

I look forward to seeing you soon.

God Bless,


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