On Sunday November the 25th we held our Advent Wreath making afternoon. The completed wreaths were blessed by Father Roger and everyone partook of an excellent tea. It was a very successful event, enjoyed by every one and also raised £200 towards the New Church Rooms project. Many thanks to Anwyl, Shirley who provided tea, and Chris who donated the candles.

The New Rooms project is going forwards, fund raising has been very successful, please look at the notice board in Church to see the current total, over £200,000 so far. The committee who are guiding the project have had a busy year working with the architects and the authorities including the Diocesan Advisory Committee and English Heritage on what will be practical, aesthetically acceptable, and fulfil the needs of the congregation and the wider parish. We are making progress, and have received useful guidance from the authorities. We are undertaking an archaeological survey of the proposed site, and look forward to moving through the process of design and approval for the New Rooms in the New Year. Please keep watching the website, and attending the fund raising events, which we hope you are also enjoying!

A list of events for 2013 will appear here and in Church straight after Christmas.
