CHURCH NEWS: We had a lovely Holy Communion service on Sunday September 7; our thanks to Reverend Neville Manning. On Sunday we welcome Reverend Roger Dalling who will lead our service of Mattins (BCP). Refreshments after in the church and all are welcome. Tomorrow, Saturday, the church will be open to welcome walkers and cyclists who are participating in the annual Ride and Stride. As I explained a couple of weeks back, this event raises much needed funds to help maintain the ancient churches such as ours. It is organised by The Historic Churches Trust and anyone is welcome to pop along and visit us or even join in.

Next week we welcome Tim Fogden who will lead Mattins.
