‘All the leaves are brown…’

Well ‘all the leaves are brown’ and fortunately (or unfortunately?!) the steep descent towards Christmas has begun-if you are anything like me it is good to look forward to some cheer, celebration and good news after the difficult times we have been going through.

However, there is lots to occupy us before then of course, bonfires and fireworks and the more thoughtful reflection and gratitude of Remembrance Sunday on 14th November. As was tradition before the interruption of Covid last year, the church service will begin at 10.30am and we will gather at the monument for 10.50am for the act of Remembrance.
Just before then on Sunday 7th November at the more usual time of 9.30am Ms Hampson from the school will be starting a regular (monthly) ‘messy church’ for young people, in addition to the ‘hey-ho’ group for families that meets on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month at church. These groups have been very well received, do come along if you would like and you’ll be made very welcome.

Having mentioned Christmas full details will follow in next month’s magazine but some highlights to look out for are the Christmas Fayre at the school on Friday 26th November (3.30-6pm), the famous ‘carols by the Christmas tree’ at the church gates on Sun 19th Dec (4pm), and of course the Christingle and late-night services on Christmas Eve.

Sorry for all the dates and arrangements-on the other hand it is nice to feel busy again and that events can happen as long as we are respectful and careful. I hope that this message finds you well, and look forward to meeting you perhaps at one of these events in the next few months.

With very best wishes

Ian Hopkins
(Interim Vicar)
