Meet The Neighbours
Unfortunately, Meet The Neighbours did not take place on Monday 3 April due to other commitments for the Village Hall Committee. However, Lynne Tweed looks forward to welcoming you all back on Monday 17 April for the usual informal drop-in event 1:00pm to 3:00pm. This event will normally take place on the first and third Monday of each month in the Village Hall to provide an opportunity to come to our welcoming space and enjoy a change of scenery whilst chatting with friends old and new.
The club met as arranged on Tuesday 4th April at Barnby Moor village hall at the usual time of 7:15pm. On this occasion, Corin Tomlin addressed the group and demonstrated the finer points of Bonsai Forest Gardens.
The Post office operates in the Village Hall on Wednesdays from 10:00am to 12:30pm. Services offered include Banking, Cash Deposits, Cash Withdrawals, Bill Payments plus lots more.
St Bartholomew’s Church
On Sunday, 2nd April (Palm Sunday), a family Communion Service took place at the local church, conducted by Rev. Craig Hunt.
Epistle: Psalm 118. 1-2 19-29 read by Joan Herrington. Gospel: Matthew 21. 1-11 read by Dylan Boddy. Intercessions: Janet Webb. Organist: Geoff Webb.
Easter Services this weekend are as follows:
- On Friday, 7th April, a “Tenebrae Service” will take place in church at 7:00pm. A service of Love and Devotion.
Tenebrae is a religious service of Western Christianity held during the three days preceding Easter Day, and characterized by gradual extinguishing of candles, and by a “strepitus” or “loud noise” taking place in total darkness near the end of the service. Communion is often included in a Tenebrae service.
- On Sunday, 9th April (Easter Sunday), an Easter Day Eucharist will take place at the usual time of 9:30am with the Rev. A Pearce officiating. Everyone is welcome!
