Thrive Learning Group

933E6031-EBB5-4E3D-B9C6-B40924105F25A team from Holy Trinity, Tidworth and St James, Ludgershall have formed a Thrive Learning Community alongside other Benefices and Parishes in the Ramsbury Area. We met in the middle of June for two very long and full days that were focused on our journey so far, who were are and where we have come from. We began the course by using post-it notes and string to construct a bayeux-tapestry-style story of the small villages of North and South Tidworth being subjected to a serious of invasions by the British Army, first in 1914 and then again and again over the decades with the largest invading force coming to Tidworth this summer as the Army ramps up its re-basing program.
From the very start we knew that we were going to have fun on this course but we were all surprised by the boldness of our vision after only two days of reflecting on where we had come from and wondering where God might lead us next. To say that our vision for 2022 is ambitious would be an understatement of epic proportions but  there was something about the way that the course was run that freed us to dream dreams boldly and with a real sense of hope, even if the timescale might be unrealistic. It was a brilliant couple of days and we all came away from the course exhausted but encouraged, and looking forward to our next meeting at the end of November when we’ll be considering Leadership!

Remembrance Sunday 2018

Remembrance Sunday is always a very special day for our community here in Ludgershall and Faberstown, and this year was extra special, with the families of the Fallen from the Great War from this place helping us to dedicate and open the new Centenary Garden, following our service and Act of Remembrance at the War Memorial. Wonderful pictures of a moving day. Lest we forget.

Appointment of a new Priest In Charge

It is with great excitement that we can announce that we are looking forward to welcoming Revd Tim Laundon as our new Priest In Charge of the Benefice of Ludgershall and Tidworth in the New Year.

Tim and his wife Amy are currently based in Windsor and preparing for their move to Wiltshire. Please continue to pray for them as they make these preparations and Tim finishes his responsibilities there.

And also continue to pray for the PCC, Church Wardens and supporting clergy here, as we continue to serve Ludgershall and Faberstown during the remainder of the vacancy until mid January 2019, when it is anticipated that Tim will be installed here by the Bishop. We praise God for His faithfulness and goodness to us and His provision for us during this time.
