Easter Experience Roadshow

A group of volunteers from across the Benefice have donned costumes and gathered props to tell the Easter story to the children of our First Schools from the perspective of by-standers to the story. Starting with the woman who saw Peter in the courtyard of the High Priest’s house and ending with the Gardener who witnesses the Resurrection of Jesus on Easter Sunday, we take the children through a series of scenes with ‘living statues’ who come to life and tell their story.

This has been a great opportunity for members of different churches in the Benefice to come together and create something a bit different, with lots of people volunteering to make costumes, create props and scenery and write scripts. And then we have our fantastic actors, bringing the story to life. Well done everyone!

60 Years of Service

Bishop Graham presenting Mike with his letter of thanks

The Rt. Rev’d Graham Usher, Bishop of Dudley, presents our organist Mike Selby with a letter from the Bishop of Worcester congratulating Mike on his retirement after 60 years of playing the organ at Cleeve Prior and the Littletons.

Mike began as organist on his 16th birthday in January 1959, and has played at worship on almost every Sunday since. He has also served as Bell Ringing Master, Tower Captain and Church Warden. Along with his wife, Julia - who is also a bell ringer - and their children, the Selby family have made a huge contribution to the life of our church, and we mark this occasion with deep gratitude. Well done, Mike!
