 News - January

Christingle Service.

 

The Christingle service on the 3rd December was well attended. As always the children brought their gifts and toys for the women’s refuge, which were taken to them and were gratefully accepted, with sincere thanks to us.

Our collection for the Children’s society amounted to £103.87.

Thank you to everyone who came and supported this worthy cause.

 

Tea and Chatter.

 

Our tea and chatter this month, together with a Christmas stall and raffle raised £108.

 

Ajay the Magic Medic.

 

AJ’s visit on Saturday the 16th was very entertaining, as always, and together with a bran tub and raffle we made the sum of £102.

 

A very big thank you to everyone who helped for the above events.

 

Nine Lessons and Carols.

 

On Sunday 17th we held our traditional service in candlelight which added greatly to the atmosphere of this well-loved service. The service was well attended and afterwards everyone enjoyed mince pies and mulled wine to add to the festive occasion.

 

Tetney School End of Term Service.

 

On Tuesday 19th Tetney School came for their end of term service. The children confidently read the nativity story interspersed with carol singing by the large congregation.

How wonderful it was to see the church so full and with so many children.

We thank the teachers and children for sharing this with us.

 

Commemorative Plaques.

 

Could anyone who may wish to order a plaque for one of the church chairs please give details to either John Clark or Diane Lukehurst by 21st January 2018 as it would be helpful to order any required all at once. Full details were in the December newsletter.

 

Wishing everyone a very happy New Year.

May it bring peace.
