Malling

TRINITY SOUTH MALLING: (Parish Church). This Sunday there is a service of Morning Praise, led by the Associate Vicar Revd Jeremy Bamber, who will be preaching on the final Chapter of Revelation: Chapter 22. Somewhat surprisingly (from the book’s reputation) this has been a very interesting, even impressive sermon series and is all set to end very positively. On a sad note however, regular members of the congregation will be sorry to hear of the death of Peggy Jones on Monday Morning (October 22). Peggy has been a Malling resident and a member of the congregation since she moved from London in the early 1980s. A while ago, she left her home in Spences Field and moved to a flat in St Thomas Court in Cliffe. In her last few weeks she has been cared for in Baron’s Down Nursing Home. Those who know her will remember her as a loyal and outspoken Christian woman, a regular and determined attender, often leading the prayers in church and always identifying the right subjects and a model of clarity and succinctness. Details of her funeral will be reported when available. It will be at Trinity South Malling Church.
