This year we celebrated the harvest on 25th September in St Joseph’s and were most grateful to Morrisons in Tewkesbury for providing the lovely Harvest Sheaf Loaf which was central to the beautiful display created by Angela Thompson and her team of flower arrangers.
Many thanks to the parishioners who supported refugees and asylum seekers living locally by bringing tinned goods, dried goods etc for issue via G.A.R.A.S.

It is with sadness that we report this week the death of Brian Johnson.
He will be remembered with much affection in the parish for his innate cheerfulness and stories of trombone playing days.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Jackie and his loving family and friends.
Holy Trinity have a Art/Craft Exhibition during the Mop Fair and have invited “Artists and Craftsmen” from other churches to take part. From:Holy Trinity Church, Tewkesbury You will remember that last year Holy Trinity Church, Tewkesbury held an Art Exhibition during Mop fair week. We are planning to do the same this year. The set up will be on Tuesday 4th October from 2pm. On Tuesday evening there will be a preview evening from 7.45 – 9 pm for you to invite family and friends.
The Exhibition will be open at various times during the week, including Friday and Saturday evenings when many people visit the church for respite and refreshment while the mop fair is in full swing! The Exhibition will be open from 12-2pm on Sunday and we will take the exhibition down from 2pm. It is important that you (or a representative appointed by you) are able to bring your work on Tuesday afternoon and collect it on Sunday afternoon as we cannot store any work. This year we are again inviting members of other Tewkesbury churches to exhibit their work. If you would like to do so please fill in the application form attached or get one from Holy Trinity (or your own church if you worship in another local church).
Do invite others (who are members of your church – we do have to have a limiting criteria!) to exhibit and that includes people of any age and ability – it would be good to have more children’s work this time! Exhibits must be original work in any medium, able to be hung or displayed and may be for sale or not for sale. We look forward to receiving your application forms soon Jean Herrick and Liz Foxen Closing date for entries is 26th September and application forms may be obtained from:- : email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
On Friday 30th September we will hold a coffee morning in the Narthex on behalf of MacMillan Cancer Support – joining with thousands of others around the country eating cake for this very good cause.
