Our Church Roof - Work Safety, Update
The roof repairs are now complete. However the work to repair the damaged stonework will take longer to complete. Please be aware that the area at the back of the church remains restricted for Health and Safety reasons, and the whole area is to be avoided due to the possibility of falling masonry. Restriction Notices have been placed accordingly.
Christmas and Advent
Just a little reminder
Following a request today from a Causeway resident:
Please do not park in the triangle at the top of the Causeway in wet or icy weather as the residents find it difficult to get a run up to exit onto Hatley Road
Friends and Family Service December 3
Today's Family and Friends Activity Service, was I think our best yet. There were certainly many more people attending which was good to see, and everyone joined in all the activities and these were all about preparing for Christmas.
There was singing with Children's Christmas Carols, and the Story of the First Christmas read by the Rev Gill. There was plenty of table activities from decorating miniature Christmas Cakes to making decorations, but others made a very good job of decorating the Christmas Tree which this year had been kindly donated by Deepdale Trees. Overall it was a very Happy Service with everyone getting into the Christmas spirit. At the end, everyone present linked hands to sing the musical version of the Lord's Prayer.
Throughout the service, Eileen served up hot drinks and cake and her husband Geoff led the musical group from his keyboard.
Thanks go to all the organisers, especially Wendy, who at the very end introduced the Travelling Crib, and signed up more hosts for it's journey around the Town.
