Plant and cake sale – thank you

A huge thank you from the Ladies Guild to everyone who supported our home made cake sale earlier this month – we hope everyone enjoyed their purchases! We raised £254 from the cake sale and a fantastic £880 from the plant stall up to and including the plant and cake sale day. Proceeds will go towards further repairs to the Church and to the Michael Hardinge Trust.

Caroline would also like to thank everyone who purchased plants and gave sponsor money during the last two weeks to Duggie for his (and her) 10 mile walk for the Katherine House Hospice, which raised over £400.

Thank you!

Big Clean thank you

Big Clean – Thank you!

A big thank you to all those who took part in the Big Clean of the church on Saturday morning.  It was a couple of hours of hard work, but what a difference!  Not a cobweb in sight (anywhere within reach at any rate – and that was quite a long way as you can see!)

We are thinking of having a quarterly Big Clean at key points in the year, e.g. around Harvest Festival, before Christmas and Easter and in early June before the wedding season starts. Volunteers are always welcome!

Singing at last!

Just to remind everyone that this Sunday we can, at last, sing again!

Our new Rector Alicia  has organised an outdoor Benefice Service at 5pm on 30th May at Hadsham Farm Horley with a hymn chosen by a representative from each of our eight churches.

Please bring a fold up seat or waterproof ground sheet if you find sitting most comfortable.

This is all age worship with everyone welcome.

Church News: Service on 2nd May, West Window Repairs and New Rector

The next Church Service will be on Sunday 2nd May at 11:00 – all welcome.

As you can see, there is still scaffolding at the Church whilst the West Window is replaced after it blew in during a storm last year. The surrounding stonework is also being repaired as it is crumbling in places.

In other news, our new Rector, Alicia Baker, is being licensed in Hornton on 4th May and the service will be streamed if anyone wants to watch.
