Dates for your diary
16 October 2018 – School Harvest Festival
4 November – 6pm Service of Remembrance and Thanksgiving
We are in need of a few more people to come on to the rota. There is no need to be an “arranger”, just a bunch in a vase would be fine. If you would like to know more or volunteer please speak to Ann.
We know that many of you put your contributions into the store facility when you do your shopping. Contributions to the church collection on the third Sunday have fallen off recently and we would like to know if there is still a need for this. Please let the churchwardens know your thoughts.
In the Benefice

Oberammergau Passion Play 2020
Every ten years the people of the Bavarian village of Oberammergau fulfil their oath to God and perform a Passion Play. It dates back to 1633 when the village was spared from the plague and as a token of thanksgiving the oath was made. Seeing the play and experiencing the village is an unforgettable experience. Pam will be leading a group to the Tyrol and the Passion Play from 30th June – 7th July and has extended an invitation to the Benefice for us to join them. For more information or a booking form don’t hesitate to get in touch with her – soon! Pam McKellen 0776 254833
If you have any questions s about this please speak to the Churchwardens, Karen, Cynthia or Ann.
