  • A lovely Harvest Festival was held in the church on Sunday 4th October. As ever, there were some beautiful floral displays in the windows and church porch, so a huge thank you to our flower ladies who decorate the church so beautifully for such special celebrations: Liz Simpson; Jan Powley; Sue Hatcher; Karen Baines; Pat Roome; Jane Moubray and Debra Thatcher;
  • Remembrance Sunday will be marked with a service of Holy Communion, conducted by Rev’d Jenni Duffy on Sunday 8th November at 9.30am;
  • Christmas Hamper: following the success of last year’s Christmas hamper raffle, we are planning to repeat this again this year. You will all receive a flier shortly explaining the details, so please keep a lookout;
