Ministers Letter: New Year Hope

Dear Friends
If you are just recovering from a hectic Christmas and find yourself with a long list of New Year’s resolutions, just relax and take some time with a coffee or tea to read through Whitton Ways. All your tasks and new year promises will still be waiting for you when you finally put this magazine down.
January is the month of Epiphany. This is the time when we remember the visit by the three wise men to the Christ child. Epiphany means revelation. In this context, Jesus is revealed to the world as God incarnate; the long-awaited Saviour. We end Epiphany with the feast of Candlemas (forty days after December 25th) when we celebrate the presentation of Jesus at the temple.
At the start of a new year we can often find ourselves re-assessing our lives and our situation. We might think about moving jobs, or moving to a new house, or we might find ourselves seeking greater meaning in our lives.
Whatever our situation it is always helpful to find space to think and reflect. There will be several opportunities across the churches of the Whitton Benefice to join groups of people also seeking the answers to life’s big questions.
Along with the regular worship opportunities, a kitchen table alpha will be starting up in Ramsbury, and in Aldbourne, a monthly, ‘Reflective Spaces’ group, based on Iona worship, will also be getting underway.
For more details, check out our weekly pew leaflets to find out what is going on and how to join in. Everyone is welcome to come along.

Remember whatever your situation or worries God is always there for you.

Wishing you all every blessing in 2019
Revd Karen
