Going deeper in to God - Transforming Communities - Making new Disciples
Services, a Quiz Night and other events.
Sunday’s morning service of Holy Communion last weekend was conducted by the Rector, the Rev Alex Wheatley. During the service, the Rev Alex announced that as from next Sunday, the Church Choir would return and would lead the congregation in singing hymns and also sing once more from their repertoire of anthems. This announcement was greeted with a round of applause as we have had little music since the first lockdown last year so it will be good to hear our own music back in our church in place of the recorded music we have been relying on. Next Sunday, the morning service will again be Holy Communion with the Rev Alex.
September 17th is the new start date for our First Steps baby and toddler group. It is held in St Mary’s church hall opposite the church and starts at 9.30am. Entry cost is £1.50 per family which includes refreshments. For further details, contact Sandy on 01767 260340. In the evening at 7.30pm, also in the church hall, the Craft and Chatter group will be holding their next get together for anyone who has a craft based hobby and this will give them a chance to meet up with like minded people to chatter about it! Entry is £3 which includes refreshments.
On September 24th , don’t forget to listen to the Biggles FM Breakfast Show on Friday morning, at 8.15am as Nick Wilson, St Mary’s Church Organist, will once more be the speaker giving his fortnightly Thought for the Day and news of all events and services coming up at St Mary’s or elsewhere in the Benefice. One of these events is the same evening when our events team are holding at 7pm a QUIZ NIGHT ITALIA in St Mary’s Church Hall.

Finally, the ladies of our church who ran a Tombola stall at last weekend’s Potton Show, raised the grand sum of £341 for St John’s Hospice at Moggerhanger. Well done ladies, a great effort.
