PAST EVENTS

PET SERVICE - SUNDAY 3RD SEPTEMBER - 3.00PM

The pet service was held on Sunday 3rd September 2017 in Church and was enjoyed by all who came along. A short informal service. The pets were welcomed into the church and Rev'd Barbara went around asking those of us there what our pets meant to us. They were all then invited up for a blessing, which I am sure they all enjoyed. To wrap the afternoon off refreshments were served. A thoroughly enjoyable afternoon. Here are some pics from the afternoon.

















MANY THANKS TO VENERABLE DAVID FLEMING

On Tuesday 20th September 2016 many of us were at the King of Hearts in West Walton to say thank you to David Fleming for all his help with the church during this latest interregnum. He has been a terrific friend to us all and to the church. Many thanks to you David. We very much look forward to keeping in touch with you and Elizabeth going forward. Many thanks also to Mike Wagstaff (one of our other interregnum priests) who remembered that David collected flags. Here are a couple of pictures from the evening.
