Churches Together in Lichfield
24th August 2020
As some of you already know sadly the Reverend Paul Brothwell, Vicar of Whittington from 1971 and also Weeford from 1978 to 1991, passed away on Thursday 6th August 2020.
He passed away after the sudden onset of a very rapid and aggressive form of lymphatic cancer.
Unfortunately due to COVID-19 restrictions Paul’s funeral will be a small family one. However there will be a Memorial service next year for those who wish to attend. I will keep you posted on that.
Paul was of course as well as our Vicar founder of St Giles Hospice, Whittington.
We all have our own memories of his time with us.
After the wonderful memories and tributes compilation I was able to pass on to Martin Iball's family from many of you, if you wish to send any memories of Paul to me I will put them together to send on to his family.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Paul’s family at this time.
Stay safe everyone and God Bless,

I am looking to recruit someone who may be willing to host over the phone (probably one to one or very small groups) or over FaceTime (small group) sing-alongs for older people.
It’s a little obscure I know but I think it would be great for peoples wellbeing but would need the right kind of person to deliver it.
Is this something you may be able to help us promote?

The main voluntary organisations I have been working with over the past 3 months (ie they received the most volunteers) have been Christian based. They are Live at Home (Methodist Housing), Lichfield Foodbank and Burntwood be a Friend (St John's and St Anne's Church are the lead members).
I am keen to get more people to volunteer locally as I know it is a very simple way of showing our faith in action.

This is for URGENT circulation around the Churches, calling especially for signing the Avaaz petition which now has one and a quarter million signatures. Letters to Michael Fabricant are also recommended. The proposed annexation of the Jordan Valley and large areas of the West Bank by the apartheid state of Israel is not only immoral but illegal under international law, therefore a criminal act. The proposed annexation is about to happen - at the beginning of July. Any queries to me 01543 255292/ 07779898878.
