May 2023

Holy God, you are the beginning and the end,
the source of all that is
and the hope for all that is to come.
You hold all things together
and everything that is exists under your shadow.
Shape our world, our communities and our lives
by this conviction.
By your grace and mercy made known in Jesus
and emboldened by your Spirit,
help us to bear witness to all that we know
and experience of you. Amen

From the Mothers’ Union Thy Kingdom Come 2023 Midday Prayers

Thy Kingdom Come 2023 will take place from 18th-28th May and is a call for Christians across the world to pray for more people to know Jesus. In the Lordsbridge Team, we mark this with our Annual Pilgrimage. We would love to invite you to join us for some or all of this special event on Friday 26th May. Please see the end of the page for further details.

Worship with us across the Team

Details of services and events across the team, as well as our worship at home resources, are available each week on our website.

Our Sunday Zoom Church meets every week at 11.00am at the following link:
Everyone is welcome.

The PCC of St Mary’s Hardwick have had to take the difficult decision to shut the church for a time, due to safety reasons. A large section of plaster fell from the ceiling of the building and concerns about further falls have led to the decision to close temporarily. Substantial repairs are required to the internal fabric of the church and money will need to be raised to make this possible.

In the meantime, Sunday services will be relocated to the church’s hall (The Cabin) and weddings and funerals will be spread across the other team churches. Please pray for the PCC and congregation of St Mary’s, as they raise the funds for this vital work and restore their church building for use.

Do you have a question about faith, life or God that you’d like us to try and answer? Send your questions through to David Newton ( and we will pick three to answer in a short podcast published on our website. No question too big or too small!

Our Organ Scholars, and friends, will perform a short concert of
music showcasing their skills on various instruments.
Tea and cake will be served from 3.30 pm in the Church.
There is no charge for admission, but voluntary donations
will be given to the Disasters Emergency Committee.

This May we will be celebrating our new King’s coronation. For many of us, this moment in our nation’s history will be our first experience of such an occasion. At its centre will be a Christian service in which His Majesty will be anointed by the Archbishop of Canterbury as King. It is a ceremony rooted in longstanding tradition and Christian symbolism. Part of every Christian’s life is the commitment to a life of service to God and to one another; a commitment the King has exemplified throughout his life. 

At St Peter and St Paul’s Dry Drayton we will be celebrating this historic occasion with a special Choral Evensong on Sunday 7 May at 5:30pm. All are welcome to join us, people of all faiths or none, as we pray for the King and our nation as we start a new chapter in our history. And as we celebrate, let us give thanks to God, for His steadfast love and faithfulness. 

A new service, every third Sunday in the Village Hall, Highfields Caldecote, suitable for families and all ages. All are most welcome to join us for music, coffee, cake, craft activities and a bible story; a space for prayer, worship and friendship. A place to make new friends and to discuss life and faith.
