Message Raughton Head Parish Magazine Rose Castle
Happy Easter everyone. It feels a bit like we have nearly got back to normal although I have been having a lot of conversations about trying to remember what we would do when things were normal. We have had "in person" Easter services when 2 years ago we stumbled into our first attempts at Livestreaming with Maundy Thursday and Good Friday filmed in my study (with one of them filmed at a 90 degree angle!) and our first Church in the Garden was filmed that Easter Sunday. Last year our Easter services were also quite weird with a walking Good Friday and a 10 minute communion in each of our buildings.
Raughton Head parish is part of a broader benefice of 4 churches with a plan for 1 more to join. Our benefice is made up of Dalston with Cumdivock, Raughton Head and Wreay with Ivegill hopefully joining soon. We have been unable to hold our traditional united service because of worries of cramming everyone into a small building so we have been looking at innovative ways to join together. One of these is a walk and picnic on Rogation Sunday,
22nd May, topped and tailed with short services. Everyone is welcome to join us. Each of our churches will have a short service and then walk together to Raughton Head where we will have an outdoor communion and picnic (anyone who would prefer to can drive instead). Raughton Head will host, hopefully joining walkers part of the way and then hosting a service and lunch shortly after 11.00 am. when everyone from each of the churches has arrived. I hope you can join us.
Every blessing

New Volunteers Wanted
All Saints Church is very much loved in our community and very much used.
Not everybody realises that our church is entirely funded by local gifts and run by volunteers. For us to continue to offer the service we do we need some new volunteers. Over the coming year, we are particularly looking for a new warden and treasurer.
Please contact our vicar or current
