It was good to see the church full on Remembrance Sunday. The collection raised £282.05p which appropriately will be donated to the Royal British Legion.
By the time you read this, it is hoped that the third stipendiary team vicar will have been appointed, following the interviews of the potential candidates on 26th November, but to be realistic it is unlikely that he or she will move into the vicarage and take on duties until around March.
Advent and Christmas
December heralds the build up to Christmas, starting with Advent, then the carol services at both Ducis and Everleigh, the re-enactment of the Nativity scene at the Come to Bethlehem service, the joyful reunion of families and the celebration of the birth of Jesus on Christmas Day, an exciting time for families, particularly children. Do come and join in the services and activities offered, whether by supporting our young at the school services, singing heartily at the carol services or entering into the spirit of Come to Bethlehem service on Christmas Eve by dressing up to play your part as shepherd, an angel, a King, a sheep, a star or whatever. This is a particularly popular service for young children and, of course, Granny and Grandpa will enjoy it too. We will be decorating the church on Saturday 21st December starting at 10.00am and so please come and help if you can - it is always fun!
As Christmas approaches, please remember there will be families struggling to make ends meet. There is a box in the church porch for food and every day items that is cleared regularly and taken to the Trussell Trust emergency food bank in Andover. Any donations for families in this position will be welcomed.
We shall be meeting on 4th December at 10.30am.
We will start again on January 8th and 22nd at 10.30am.
We wish you all a happy Christmas.
Our monthly drop in afternoon teas will be this month on Wednesday 11th December (Christmas Party) and then 22nd January both at 3pm. Do join the regulars for tea, cakes and a chat - they will always be pleased to see you.
Finally a big thank you to everyone who has contributed to the maintenance and running of the church during the last year, whether it has been cleaning, flower arranging, ringing our bells, playing the organ, financial support or whatever. It is all much appreciated. The PCC wish you all a very happy and peaceful Christmas and New Year.
