Sidesmen Rotas 2018-19

Sidesmen Co-ordinator: Liz Hill (Tel: 07736 067564)

Gravestone Re-positioning

With the approval of the PCC and with a Faculty obtained from the Diocesan Advisory Committee we are proposing to re-position 15 gravestones from their current location at the front of church to a new site in the memorial garden.

The gravestones which date back approximately 200 years are at present lying horizontally and when moved to the new site they will be relaid in a vertical position to avoid further deterioration of the stones. The work will be carried out in a professional manner by Rawsons and is expected to commence in September.

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

Give me the grace, Good Lord To set the world at naught.
To set the mind firmly on You and not to hang upon the words of men’s mouths.
To be content to be solitary.
Not to long for worldly pleasures.
Little by little utterly to cast off the world and rid my mind of all its business.
Not to long to hear of earthly things, but that the hearing of worldly fancies may be displeasing to me. Gladly to be thinking of God, piteously to call for His help.
To lean into the comfort of God.
Busily to labour to love Him.

View from the Vicarage – A Man For All Seasons

One of my very favourite films is the adaptation of Robert Bolt’s play, A Man for All Seasons. It is set in Tudor England and is concerned with the final years of St Thomas More. I still have the copy that I bought when I was in the UVIth at School. I guess that the...

Mothers’ Union

Our Mothers’ Union exists to “work with people of all faiths and none to promote stable marriage, family life and the protection of children through praying, enabling and campaigning. ”

Our members work to bring hope and practical support to people every year through our parenting, literacy and community development programmes and as part of the volunteer base of local churches.

We are not stuffy!

The services mostly follow the pattern for Holy Communion and we are supported by an able & highly motivated laity. We have an excellent organist and a well established choral tradition.
