Many thanks to those who turned out last month in the pouring rain to help clear the overgrown part of the churchyard. We achieved a lot, but will need to return for another session early next year.
As Christmas approaches we encourage you to participate in the various festivities in the Parish. The services above include carol services at Ducis and Everleigh and at Ducis the Come to Bethlehem service on Christmas Eve and Family Communion on Christmas Day. As we all know, Christmas is an especially exciting time for all children and so do come and share this excitement with them at their school Advent and Carol services and get them to dress up for the ever popular Come to Bethlehem service on Christmas Eve, where the Christmas story will be told by actors of all ages, and please get involved yourselves - details from Tish Leigh (850867). Do join us for mulled wine and mince pies after the Carol and Come to Bethlehem services.
The decoration of our church will start at 10.00am on Saturday 20th December and the preparation of the christingles for the Come to Bethlehem service will start at 10.00am on Tuesday 23rd December. As always any help with these tasks will be welcomed. If you cannot make services at St Andrew's, it could be that the services at St Mary's in Kingston may suit you better.
Trussel Trust Food bank
As you will have read in our newspapers, there are an increasing number of people who are struggling to make ends meet and are turning to food banks for help. Please remember them this Christmas and consider donating to the Trussell Trust food bank in the box provided in the church porch. The Trust like to include Christmas treats in addition to emergency food and have asked particularly for tinned ham, Christmas pudding or cake, boxes are bars of chocolates, snacks & nibbles and Christmas crackers. They were most grateful for our donations after our Harvest festival services.
and Afternoon Tea
Support for SCAMPS and afternoon teas seem to have waned now as the days close in and so we are discontinuing these meetings in the church for now, but will be happy to start them up again if there is wider interest and demand. The last SCAMPS meeting in the church will be the Christmas Party on Wednesday 10th December 10-11.30am. In January they will combine with the Toddlers' Group who meet every Monday 9-11.30am in the Village Hall during the school term.
