The Flame continues on its journey
The Flame of Faith last week passed through the Claydon deanery. At a deanery service the candles were distributed. During the week the flame was welcomed at a Pastoral Care Session and a small candle went from there to a residential home. The torch was a great success at Messy Church in Steeple Claydon, and was part of the three services at the Claydons on the Sunday. The Flame also featured at the All Age Worship in Grendon Underwood, and was taken into Twyford, Grendon and Marsh Gibbon Schools. The Revd Mary Cruddas took a Flame of Faith assembly at Waddesdon School, with about 800 pupils present. The Heads of Years 7,8,9 and 10 are selecting two pupils in each year who have encouraged others to 'shine' and giving them a candle to remind them to keep shining. The light goes on and will be appearing in Westcott very soon too. This week the Flame of Faith is in Mursley deanery - so hopefully I will bring an update from there too, before it arrives in Stone (in the Aylesbury deanery) on Wednesday. That's when I am meeting up with it again, just a mile or so from home.
