The Benefice of

This Week In our Church


By Dave Thompson


Please note: This is the item for inclusion in the CHRONICLE NEXT FRIDAY. When read before Friday, days and dates might not appear correct!



The Morning Service last Sunday was the Shorter Holy Communion with the Rector, The Rev Gill Smith. The Rev Gill explained the way the shorter service works, mainly for newcomers to understand the various elements of Holy Communion but in a simplified format. The Children use a Treasure Box with little models inside to help them understand in a more practical way.


The morning service next Sunday will not be in church but we will be joining with other Potton Churches for a Churches Together service in the Party on Potton Big Marquee. The service starts at 10.30am and all are very welcome. For those wishing to take Holy Communion, there will be a Benefice service in St Mary’s at 9am with the Rector.


Morning Prayer services will be held next week, at  Sutton Church on Thursday, and on Tuesday and Friday at St Mary’s, all services at 9am. All are welcome.


Our popular Craft and Chatter group continue to meet throughout the summer and will next meet at 7.30pm this evening, August 24, in the church hall. Details from 01767 260792.


Looking further ahead to September 9, at 6.30pm, we will be holding a special “Pets Service” in the Potton Show Marquee. Bring your pet along to receive a blessing at this unusual service just for your little furry, or feathered, friends. All are very welcome.


The first of St Mary’s Autumn functions will be on September 14 and it will be a Hawaiian Evening with a 3 course meal. More information in the coming weeks about this.


All other church activities, and any changes, can be found on the website: www.pottonparishchurch.org.uk and on our Facebook page with the very latest updated information.
