Facts

Remember this? Humpty Dumpty to Alice in Through the Looking Glass: ‘When I use a word,’ he said, in a rather scornful tone, ‘it means just what I choose it to mean - neither more nor less.’ It’s no wonder Humpty ended up having a great fall. The point of language is...

Finding God

Really, it’s not our job to find God. He finds us. He never really loses us, but we hide from him or lose ourselves, and God finds us again. Maybe the first question I should ask is....do I want God to find me? Should I come out of my hiding place? Should I open my...

Safeguarding at St Annes' Church Tottington

The care and protection of children, young people and adults involved in Church activities is the responsibility of everyone who participates in the life of our Church.

Churchyard Reordering

Having gone through and satisfied all of the necessary legal requirements the Parochial Church Council has obtained permission from the Diocesan Chancellor to relocate a number of gravestones that are currently located in the Memorial Garden at the front of the Church.

For many years they have posed a real hazard in respect of personal safety; this is particularly so in the winter. The work of relocation will be undertaken with meticulous care by J Rawson and Son using specialist equipment and the stones will be sunk upright in front of the wall that separates the Parish Hall from the Churchyard with the inscriptions visible.

During the removal of the stones the Vicar intends to be on site. Added soil will then be placed on the memorial garden and this will be seeded.

If anyone has any questions or concerns please do hesitate to contact the Vicar.

Everyone is welcome

Do come and join us at our Sunday meeting at 10.15am, and pop in afterwards for a cuppa and a chat in the parish hall.

Prayer

O God our maker, whose Son Jesus Christ gave to your servant Bede grace to drink in with joy the word that leads us to know you and love you: in your goodness grant that we also may come at length to you, the source of all wisdom, and stand before your face; through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen

The Venerable Bede
