MEET THE NEIGHBOURS: A group of forty plus were in attendance when the neighbours group met on Wednesday 20th February in Sutton Village Hall for a communal lunch. Star of the show was once again the villages own chef and caterer Nigel Bower who produced an excellent meal for the gathering. The usual quiz took place, a bit more difficult than normal, but with some surprising results. The raffle with a plethora of prizes donated by the members also attracted a lot of attention on the day! Members went home happy and well fed, some with a collection of prizes! Thanks to the efforts of Joan Reiter and helpers for supporting the local community.

CHURCH SERVICE: On the second Sunday before lent, Sunday 24th February, the “Worship for All” service took place at St. Bartholomew’s Church in the village at the now established later time of 4:00pm. Worship for all being appropriate on this occasion as ages in attendance ranged from infancy to some of a more mature age group taking part in today’s service and all very welcome! The service itself was conducted by the Reverend Cora Yarrien who also did the intercession : Organist: Geof Webb. The day’s sermon revolved around storms and hope and the outcome of such events, this being highlighted greatly by a true life family adventure in the same vein narrated by parishioner Monica Hockenhull, both ending in a satisfactory conclusion. Hymns and prayers continued throughout the service, with the highlight of the day being a selected song by the school choir, somewhat depleted due to the half term holiday, but never the less very good! As the service concluded the gathering were invited to remain for refreshments, teas coffees and sandwiches, and hot soup and bread rolls provided and served by the incumbent.

COMMUNITY CHURCH BUILDING PROJECT UPDATE: A great turn out for the first project meeting in church on Tuesday 19th February at 2:00pm, conducted by the Reverend Cora Yarrien assisted by Church Warden Dylan Boddy and open to the floor for constructive comments. Plenty of ideas on how the church building can be used more widely in the community along with ways to raise money for Phase 1 of the building project which will see a toilet and kitchen installed.

The next step is to have plans and a survey completed which will be done by the church architect. A great start to a very exciting time for St Bartholomew’s church and the community. Anyone wishing to donate money towards the Building Project can do so by cheque (at the moment) and should be made payable to Sutton PCC, with Church Building Project written on the back of the cheque. This money will only be used to fund the current project in St Bartholomew’s church.
