New Year 2020 issue

News from the Pews

I begin my notes for this edition with an up to date total raised during our “Shop Fortnight” in October. This was an amazing £8,191.84, which, when Gift Aid is added, will exceed £10,000. Well done everyone involved, especially our organisers.

Church Services

Fr Colin held a Healing and Reconciliation Service on 27th October, and a Taizé Style Service on 24th November, both on Sunday evenings.

There was also a Mass, (for All Souls Day), for the Faithful Departed on 2nd November and a Christmas Tree Memorial Service on Saturday afternoon, 14th December.

Our Advent Service was on 1st December, we sang carols in the Precinct on Saturday 21st together with other local churches, accompanied by the Salvation Army Band.

The Children’s Nativity Play was during the 10am Eucharist on Sunday 22nd, the Carol Service and Readings had a slightly different format that evening.

There was a Christingle Service as usual and Midnight Mass on Christmas Eve, plus two services on Christmas Day.

Fashion Show, 22nd November

Approximately 60 ladies arrived at 7pm ready for our Fashion Show which was due to begin promptly at 7.30pm. We were greeted with glasses of delicious hot punch and then settled ourselves on chairs lined up along the two lengths of the Church Hall.

Elaine, from Travelling Trends explained the Company’s ethos and introduced the five models - which included Mo Peters, Lesley Handy and Sarah Brewer from St George’s. Elaine described each model’s outfit and gave us prices and savings.

After the show we had one hour to try on any clothes we liked which were arranged on rails, plus there were accessories and bags on tables by the stage.

A table-till was set up at the door and they were happy to take cash or credit cards. It was a really great evening which was enjoyed by everybody.
