Our Table Top Sale

The Table Top Sale  held on Saturday 24th August was  a great success and we are very grateful for all the support and help we received from members of the congregation and their friends.  As it was part of the Bank Holiday weekend there were a large number of visitors to the village and strong advertising of the event (including a yellow and black banner on the bridge over the Dane stream all week) helped to increase the numbers coming to the sale. We had a steady stream of visitors all morning and they and the stall holders benefitted from...

Refurbishment Update

Refurbishment Update The new Pulpit Fall has arrived and I am sure that you will agree that it is lovely. We have to thank John Paddington (an adherent and partner of Dorothy Williams) for the very smart new notice board at the back of the church and for his carpentery skills on rescuing the leaflet boxes . These remain in the foyer/front entrance hall. The new pulpit light has been raised so as to allow a pulpit fall to be positioned below it. The carpets are down, the meeting room chairs and tables have been delivered  and the rubbish has...
