Music in Lyddington presents Stringfever - CANCELLED

Coming from a family of musicians it was always likely that the Broadbent boys were going to follow their fathers into the music profession. Giles and Ralph studied at the Royal Academy of Music and Graham at the Royal College. Giles went on to play lead violin for several West End shows. In 2004, their Youngest brother Neal was due to study cello at the Guildhall School of Music...but instead he was kidnapped by his brothers to be the cellist in the new group Stringfever!

Please visit: www.musicinlyddington.co.uk or click on the flyer for more information, pricing and ways to book.

Deanery Briefing Programme - Moving on from the Lockdown …. the Theological Perspective

After coping with the effects of being isolated and, for many, changes to their jobs and financial situation or new working practices there seems to be a shift in the way folk view life. There seems to be a greater appreciation of the things that make life worth living.

The Covid-19 restrictions and the resulting lockdown has both constrained and provided new opportunities for our mission and ministry. Many churches and deaneries have been creative in the way they have provided worship and ministry that has touched folk far beyond their parish or deanery.

  • How do we build on these relationships and what is that we can offer to make the most of these new opportunities?
  • What can we do to nurture these new contacts and continue to minister to our existing church communities in a post lockdown era?
  • What can we glean from scripture and then what practical steps can we take?
    Lindsay will reflect on the theological perspective of the responsibility to be agents for engagement with the communities we have touched and are touching as we emerge into a new era of our mission and ministry after the Covid-19 limitations.


There will be opportunity for questions and discussion with Lindsay.

Bishop's Walk and Talk - Overnight Retreat at Launde Abbey

23 September to 2pm 24 September

Clergy only for the overnight retreat

Get some fresh air, enjoy the countryside around the diocesan retreat house - and take the opportunity to ask Bishop Donald any questions you'd like! 

The walk will commence at 10am on the first morning. After lunch, there will be time to talk to Bishop Donald. The rest of the day is free to enjoy the Abbey.

On the next morning, Bishop Donald will present a talk about the English Civil Wars.

This talk is open to both clergy and laity.

Our time together will finish after lunch. For those who wish, a trip can be arranged to visit nearby Withcote Chapel, currently under the protection of the Historic Churches Trust.

If you have mobility issues, please feel free to enjoy the Abbey rather than taking the walk.

Speaker: The Rt Revd Donald Allister was installed as Bishop of Peterborough on 17 April 2010. He is committed to seeing people and churches grow in love and service to Jesus Christ.

The Theological History of the Civil War

Speaker: Bishop Donald Allister

Where did the divine right of kings come from? Why did Charles try to impose episcopacy on the Scots? Did Laud cause the Civil War? Why was the Act of Uniformity so strict? And what can we learn from all of this?

The talk will be at the diocesan retreat house of Launde Abbey and follows on from Bishop Donald's well received talk at Canons Ashby last year. Lunch will be taken at Launde Abbey and afterwards there will be an opportunity for a trip to nearby Withcote Chapel, maintained by the Historic Churches Trust. The cost, to include hot drinks and lunch, will be £25.00, payable to Launde Abbey on the day.

About Launde Abbey: Launde Abbey was founded as an Augustinian priory in 1119 by Richard Basset, a royal official of Henry I. Thomas Cromwell liked the Abbey and although he never lived there, his son Gregory did so, and he is buried at Launde.
