Church news

There seemed to be so much going on at the end of last year, and now seems a good time to take stock, and get back into routine.

To sum up The Bazaar was a great social event bringing the village together and into the church. Although by the end of the day we were all starting to get a little chilly. Thank you to stall holders, helpers and visitors, the proceeds being shared amongst the village groups. The ‘Darkness to Light’ Service was an inspiring start to the Christmas celebrations, and a Candlelit Carol Service well attended on 23rd December and Christmas Day Service at 10.30am

We wish Bill, Rene and Val speedy recoveries from their recent operations, and send our love to Rev’d Jane awaiting her operation.

Sadly our Parish Magazine ceased printing in December and so we only have an online presence.
