News for week of November 29

Mary and Joseph

News News As Mary and Joseph cannot travel round the parish during Advent this year we can all share the journey in our thoughts, with this prayer:
Heavenly Father,
we ask you to inspire us to be thinking people as we share this journey of Mary and Joseph through the days of Advent to the celebration of Your birth at Christmas time.
Please bless our homes, those who live in them, and all who enjoy their hospitality at this Holy Time, and always.
Amen

Fence maintenance

News News We are thankful for the repair of the broken fence at the back of the graveyard by church members who completed the work despite the inclement weather.

Remembrance

News News Due to the covid lockdown we were unable to hold the Remembrance service in church, or share the laying of wreaths at the war memorial. The service on November 8 was held on-line with the conventional two minute silence. A wreath was laid at the memorial by the churchwardens after the service.

All Souls

News News This year we were unable to hold a service as we usually do to remember loved ones who have died. Instead, as an act of remembering, all were invited to add a ribbon to the memory tree which was in the church grounds from Friday 30 October to Sunday 1 November. A service for All Souls was held on-line.
