Christmas Fayre 2019

We made just over £2,300 which is £300 more than last year so a huge thank you to everyone! We could not have done it without those who generously gave of their time and donations in so many different ways. – as stall holders, setting up (particular thanks to Michelle and Andy for the Santa’s grotto and crib scene) clearing up at the end, giving goods/prizes to sell, and of course attending on the day. It really helped having Sticky Fingers with us this year which accounted for so many children and families who came, and both they and Perdiswell School sang which was lovely and added to the festive atmosphere. A heart-felt thanks to everyone and a Happy Christmas to all.



This year's 9 Lessons and Carols Service will be at 6.30pm on Sunday 15th December.  


Christmas Flowers

Can you help? The service of nine lessons and carols will be held later today at 6.30pm.
We usually start greening up the Church for this service, this will happen after the Praise Together Service this morning.


- Lovely assistants; many hands make light work!

- If you would like to donate towards the cost of flowers, please give your donations to Geoff Hill or Andy.
