CHURCH SERVICE: The service on Sunday 1st September was “Songs of Praise” conducted by Lay Reader Joan Herrington, commencing at the usual time of 9:15am. After a very warm welcome and the declaration of general notices to hand the service entitled A celebration of lives in Christ began! Various readings took place involving members of the congregation including: Rosemary Woodgate, Monica Hockenhull, Lynne Tweed, Shirley Stokes. Readings for today were read by Fiona Pagdin and prayers were led by Janet Webb. A lesser turnout than normal in church today with various members on holiday at this time! Today was a special occasion for one couple present as today’s Officiant Joan Herrington and husband Harry were celebrating 66 years of wedded bliss.   The congregation congratulated the happy couple and wished them well. Hymns chosen by the pair, their favourites over many years were sung with conviction and great gusto by those present making a very warm and far reaching service enjoyed by worshippers. Following the concluding prayer and blessing parishioners were invited to remain for refreshments.

You can find more information about the church on the Sutton website here, and it also has its own facebook page here.

ST. BARTHOLOMEW’S DAY: The local church’s event to celebrate St. Bartholomew’s day on Saturday 24th August was deemed a success and attracted a large amount of people on the day! As it was the church’s Patronal Festival Day they celebrated by opening the church during the day for refreshments, Bells rung as scheduled, unfortunately an attempt to ring a quarter peal on the day was lost but did not dampen the enthusiasm of the ringers, who were on hand to ring again for service on Sunday morning. A service of “Holy Communion” was held at 3:30pm in the afternoon and the display of the plans for the proposed new toilet and kitchen, attracted a lot of attention as they were perused during the event. Having a raffle , serving afternoon teas all added to the days event which appeared to be appreciated by those in attendance. This special event was held to aid the  building fund and get the local community involved with the plans. Thanks must go to all concerned for their time and efforts.
