In Memoriam of Gordon Foote

 
The bench and engraved stone placed in Holymount Orchard in memory of Gordon Foote was dedicated by the Vicar of Tottington, the Reverend Hugh Bearn on Saturday 17th November at 12o’clock at the Orchard. Following this there was a walk on the West Pennine Way to the Pack Horse at Affetside for lunch.

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, the ruler of all, who called your servant Margaret to an earthly throne and gave her zeal for your Church and love for your people that she might advance your heavenly kingdom; mercifully grant that we who commemorate her example may be fruitful in good works and attain to the glorious crown of your saints; through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen

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.
