We had a very special Chapel service this week taken by Jan Marshall, who shared her hopes for Othona. You can read some of this on our faithbook page (https://www.othonaessex.org.uk/faith-book). Please do submit your thoughts and prayers to go on this page.

O God may the doors of Othona be wide enough to receive all who need love and compassion.

But narrow enough to shut out any spirit of selfishness and self-interest.

We are sad to note the death of Tony Sinden, an Othona member for many years, and one for
whom the Community has cause to be truly grateful. As Community Treasurer from 1988-1995,
Tony was in charge of finances during the major fund-raising project set up to establish the first
permanent building at Bradwell, The existence of the Norman Motley building is due in no small
part to the skills and dedication Tony brought to the task.

A holiday at Bradwell became an annual event in the family calendar and later their children,
