Hagley Church Website : Do you have a little spare time to put towards helping our church from the comfort of your home? We are looking for someone to update and maintain our website. Once the site is refreshed, it would only be minimal updating each week. If you are confident with using computers, although the website we use is very straightforward, Sue at the Parish Office would love to hear from you.


Lent Groups: continue at St Saviour’s on Monday evenings at 7.30 pm, for 3 more weeks.  We will be following a York Course “God has no favourites”.  The course book is available at £5. It’s not too late if you want to join, please contact Sue at the Parish Office.


Beer Glasses: If anyone has any Pint or Half-pint beer glasses that they no longer want, please let Sue at the Parish Office know, as they would be helpful for the bar at the forthcoming Hagley Music Festival. Thank you!


Richard’s retirement.  Richard announced last Sunday that, after 28 years as Incumbent in Hagley, and also serving more recently in Clent as well, he is to retire in the summer.  His last Sunday leading worship will be Sunday 30 June, when there will be a Benefice Holy Communion service and farewell in St John’s.  He is then given a month by the diocese to move, without any duties, before officially retiring at the end of July.


Archdeacon Nikki has called a Preliminary Vacancy Meeting, which is an ‘extraordinary meeting’ for all Hagley and Clent PCC members, at 7.30 pm on Thursday 7 March in St Saviour’s Church.  Please pray for God’s blessing on our two parishes, as we enter this time of vacancy.
