This morning at our Parish Eucharist, we celebrated the dedication of our Church. St Mary our Lady was founded and dedicated in the 13 century, and there has been continuous Christian worship here ever since, truly a cause for celebration! The service included an anthem by the choir 'Glorious and Powerful God, by CV Stanford. In his sermon Father Stephen reflected on the generations who have had custody of our Church, and pointed out to the young people present that this was their future responsibility!

We are pleased to report that the Off Centre Concert last week raised £355 for the New Parish Rooms project, many thanks to all who took part and made donations.

Next weekend please do come to the service to mark All Souls day on Saturday at 6:00pm, when the Faure Requiem will be performed as part of the liturgy. On Sunday afternoon we have a concert of saxophone music from Fresalca   at 3:00pm followed by tea!

If you would like to join us on Advent Sunday afternoon in the Church Hall to make an Advent Ring, please sign the list at the back of the church so that we can order the materials and arrange the tea!! The cost this year is £12:50, payable to the Church Wardens or on the afternoon.
