The Bishop of Monmouth's Lent Appeal
The Bishop writes:
"This year I am asking you to set aside some money to support the work of the Eden Gate project in Newport. As patron of the project I have recognised its work of mission to bring help to the poor, the homeless and those affected by drug abuse. There are major challenges to our national social services and charities such as Eden Gate provide essential support for those who often fall beween the gaps. Jesus healed those on the edge of the crowd and I am grateful for Eden Gate for offering that Christian presence. Please read their story at www.edengate.org.uk and give generously this Lent."
Our local churches hope people will support this Annual Appeal by the Bishop. Perhaps you could give the equivalent of a meal on Fridays - or something comparable. If you collect it in a jar or similar we will produce special Gift Aid Envelopes which will enable the charity to make the best use of your gifts.
Michael Smith, Grosmont Church Treasurer.
Archery in the Nave
Sandy Ireson has started her acclaimed Archery Lessons in the Nave on Friday evenings. These are suitable for all age groups (within reason!). Why not explore a new venture with her? All profits go to support St Nicholas, Grosmont.

Rent the Nave for your Event!
Grosmont Nave is one of the finest in all Wales. It makes a wonderful venue for all kinds of events. Do not overlook it!
Further information from Andrew.
St Nicholas Church is a fine medieval building but, much more than that, it is also the people of the community who live and work in our beautiful parish. The church stands as a powerful reminder of what community life meant to the people of past centuries; today it remains a symbol for shared experience and the spirit of community.
In ancient times the church was an important community space; it was only much later that the building was reserved exclusively for ecclesiastical use. We are lucky still to have the dramatic original nave of St Nicholas with its fine acoustics. We are also fortunate to share with the parish community the vision of restoring the nave to its central and original community role.
Jean Prosser is Priest in Charge of the Grosmont Group of Parishes. Jean was centrally involved in the huge achievement of preventing the imminent collapse of St Cadoc’s Church at Llangattock Lingoed, which now stands restored and beautiful. We see this restoration as a metaphor for how we take forward the life of our worshipping community. Under Jean’s leadership the ministry team, the PCC and the whole congregation look outwards towards the wider community to engage with it and share our Christian vision. We are an ecumenical congregation and welcome everyone who wants to meet and talk with us, question and challenge us, share our vision and join us.
