The Season of Remembrance will soon be with us, particularly poignant as we
think about the first year of World War One. The All Souls Service of Remembrance and Thanksgiving will be held on Sunday 2nd November at 3.00pm
and for those who come to that Service there will be an opportunity for the
names of people they are remembering to be read out, along with those whose
funerals have taken place during the last 12 months.
Letters of Invitation to the All Souls Memorial Service to the next of kin of
the people whose funerals have been held during the last 12 months have been
sent out but there are still a few to be delivered. Do encourage anyone you know
who would like to remember a loved one to come to this Service.
And the important season of Advent, leading to Christmas will then follow.
The Town Christmas Lights switch on is Saturday 29th November when we will
be holding our popular family St Nicholas’ Workshop.
The Advent Carol Service on Sunday 30th November.
Welcome to our Services today .
Tower Fund and Stone Sponsorship. If you take a walk around the base of the
tower you will spot some of the new stones being used in the reconstruction of the
South West buttress. Each is coded according to its designated place and eventually
the sponsors of each stone will receive a certificate identifying their area of sponsorship. There is also a model underneath the display board in Church.
There is a small team of stone masons working on the project and during weekdays
their tapping can be clearly heard. There are still areas of repair to be sponsored, with
our shortfall now reduced to £12,500. So please, if you haven’t already sponsored a
stone, please join with the townspeople and local community in ensuring that this project can be completed by mid December. Leaflets and forms are available in Church.
We have started our annual Committed Giving. Please collect your individual
envelopes from the back of church. More information coming shortly as to date for
return to church.
The Children’s Society Christmas Card Catalogues can be found on the table
near the Vestry. Margaret Bane is glad to take orders to save individual postage
costs. Contact her after the 10am service or on 01692 403758. Or at the Coffee
Morning onf Thursday 23rd October.
Don’t forget to put in your diary St Nicholas Quiz and Supper Evening to be
held on Saturday 15th November commencing at 7.00pm! Contact friends to
organise your teams. Tickets are available from Jill Bowyer and raffle prizes
would be gratefully received. For further information regarding contributions of
food, please refer to Helen Gosling, Anthea Wright or Lois Sherman.
