News from Cheap Street

Saturday 24th April 2021 was a very special day, when The Pod was officially opened in one of the two little shops that are part of the church property in Cheap Street itself, while the main church building is set back from the road.  The shop windows were bright and welcoming with The Pod sign at the top of each.  They advertised what was on offer inside, a Christian lending library, sticky church bags, information about many community projects, currently showing Sherborne Community Kitchen, The Rendezvous for young people, a knitting project and an appeal to support a new Breast Cancer Unit at Yeovil Hospital.

A good number of people gathered outside the shop from various community groups and from other churches as well as our own.  The Mayor of Sherborne, Councillor Jon Andrews, cut the ribbon across the doorway and spoke of the benefits of increased links between the Church and the community.  In addition to our own minister, Duncan, we were very glad to have the Rev’d Paul Arnold with us, who prayed that God would use The Pod for the work of his Kingdom.  We now go forward in faith, not quite knowing what might develop but ready to sow seeds of love.

We are so grateful to all those who have worked really hard to get to this stage, where The Pod is up and running, and most especially to Lynn Heaton, who enthused the Church in the beginning and who has given so much of herself to this project.  If you come to Sherborne, please come and see this new venture.  It will be open Tuesdays to Saturdays from 10.00am to 12.00noon and 1.00pm to 3.00pm.
