The Church of England - - THE CHURCH IN ENGLAND -

A film partly shot in St Mary Mag­da­lene Church in Huck­nall, telling the story of Lord By­ron’s daugh­ter, was show on BBC4 on Thurs­day. Ian Raynor, church­war­den at St Mary’s, said: “As well as hav­ing Lord By­ron buried in our church we also have his daugh­ter, Countess Ada Lovelace. We had a film crew in church for a whole day a few weeks ago and we are look­ing for­ward to see­ing it.”

* Bishop Paul Wil­liams, pic­tured right, joined a dio­cese prayer walk, vis­it­ing ev­ery church in the River Idle Benefice. The com­mu­ni­ties of Bawtry, Auster­field, Mis­sion, Ever­ton and Mat­tersey, were cre­ated a year ago, and Bishop Paul joined the Rev Jonathan Strickland and prayer walk­ers to par­take in Mis­sion, a fam­ily ser­vice and Holy Com­mu­nion at ev­ery sta­tion. “It was a fan­tas­tic day,” said Mr Strickland. “We walked and stopped to pray and in ev­ery church in the benefice we had prayer and wor­ship. “We are one church meet­ing in five lo­ca­tions and I am try­ing to en­cour­age the con­gre­ga­tion to think like that; to­gether we can do things which we can­not do sep­a­rately.”
