Carbrooke Church News for March

cof

The PCC are in the process of putting in another bid to the Heritage Lottery Fund, which sadly we were unsuccessful with last time due to the numbers of other churches applying. Please pray for us as we work towards restoring and maintaining our wonderful building as a haven of peace, safety, and community space; for prayer, hospitality or entertainment.
As I write, the snow from last week has just about melted, unfortunately we had to cancel the service on 4th March, as the church path was impassable, as were many of the roads leading into Carbrooke (for one reason or another!). Inspite of all the snow, I see the spring flowers are still making their presence felt – crocus’, snowdrops, aconites , hellebores and primroses, so we can provide some pretty little posies for Mothering Sunday. We have a busy schedule of varied services for the Easter Season, so please join us.

Our next event to look forward to will be
Village Fete on SATURDAY 30th JUNE
In the Church FLOWER FESTIVAL around the theme of the CARBROOKE TEDDIES
Something for everyone with Fun, Games and Stalls in the Village Hall and on the Millenium Green, with the Church full of Flowers and Teddies, and serving Teas and Cakes. We expect the Flower Festival to continue onto Sunday afternoon. Look out for more details later
