|Sunday 30th||6.00pm||St Andrew's Day Hymns of Praise|
A big thank you to the DEVS Committee for the generous donation made to the church from the money raised at this year's show and to the Parish Council for their grant towards the maintenance of the churchyard. Our funding campaign highlighted the considerable maintenance and running cost needed for the upkeep of our ancient building, which all has to be shouldered by the village, and we are most grateful for this welcome support.
The church was looking particularly lovely for our Harvest celebrations and thank you to all those who were involved with the decorating and donating of food and produce, which were gratefully received by West Farm Care Home and the Trussel Trust afterwards.
This month Scamps will be on Wednesday 12th and 26th November at 10.30am. If you enjoy these informal meetings with families with young children, please encourage your friends to come too. Of course grandparents or carers will be very welcome as well and it provides a good opportunity for the children to interact together. Further details can be obtained from Lindie Rogers (CD850283).
Monthly drop in afternoon teas will be on Wednesday 26th October at 3pm. Do join the regulars who will always be pleased to see you.
Deanery Autumn Adult Studies
Another of the Deanery Autumn Adult studies is to take place at St Mary's Church Collingbourne Kingston at 7.30pm on Tuesday 18th November. This will be an evening of exploration, discussion and reflection on the significance of Jesus Christ for people today. Further information can be found on the church notice board or by contacting Alan Deboo (CD 850683)
Remembrance Service on 9th November 2014
This year it is Collingbourne Kingston's turn to host the Remembrance Service at 10.45am on Remembrance Sunday 9th November. The school will be holding their usual short ceremony at the Collingbourne Ducis War Memorial on Armistice Day itself (Tuesday 11th), assembling just before 11.00am, and everyone is welcome to join them.
Graveyard clean up
It is planned to have another go at clearing the SE corner of the graveyard, which had become very overgrown with ivy and saplings, a task we were unable to complete in July. We intend to tackle this on Saturday 8th November starting at 10.00am and any help will be much appreciated. We can also make sure the War Memorial area is cleared of leaves for the school's Armistice ceremony.
St Andrew's Day Hymns of Praise
We will be marking St Andrew's Day on Sunday 30th November with a celebratory Hymns of Praise at 6pm. This will be an opportunity for you to choose your favourite hymn and so please let the Rev Jo Reid or the church wardens know your choice and why you have chosen it by 24th November, This will allow our organist time to practice it! The service will be followed by light refreshments and gluwein and we hope you will stay on to enjoy this with us.
