You are warmly invited to attend this service, bringing with you your family and friends.  Refreshments will be served after the service.

During the service, for anyone who chooses it, the names of those you are remembering can be read out.  If you would like us to do this, please contact the church office.

At our recent Harvest Supper Mary Williams, Terence Hill and John Tresidder, who had all recently stood down from the Fabric Committee, were enthusiastically thanked by the church family for all their years of dedicated service on the fabric committee, notching up over 100 years of service between them! They were presented with a wonderful cake made by Heather Shackleton showing the three of them sitting on a bench outside the church.  The cake was then sliced and enjoyed by everyone attending the supper.

Rev Vikki Bisiker
