CHURCH FLOWERS October: 2nd and 9th Liz Nunn

It is with great sadness that we mourn the passing of the Queen, who has served our country with such dedication. King Charles lll will mark the beginning of a new era which we pray will be a positive time for all people. 

We will be trialling a SHARING BOX in the church porch where people can donate food or take it if they are finding life hard . Please make good use of it, we want to reach out to everyone in the village. You don’t need to come to church to use the box. 

We are now able to keep the church open all Sunday. 

We are all looking forward to the Harvest celebrations on 9th October which were such a success last year. The service will be followed by an auction of produce and a finger buffet. We want to fill the church! Bring your family ,your garden produce, nibbles for after or just bring yourself. New people are especially welcome. I promise the church will look beautiful. Anybody keen on flower arranging come and help, with flowers or greenery after 9.30am on Friday 7th October.
