Please join us for our Service of Holy Eucharist on Remembrance Sunday November 14 at 10:00 am. Our readings are 1 Samuel 1:4-20, Hebrews 10:11-14, 19-25, and Mark 13:1-8. The Rev. Douglas Robinson will be preaching and Rev. Chris Easthill presiding. The bulletin is here.
This Sunday is Remembrance Sunday, the day traditionally put aside in the United Kingdom and all Commonwealth countries to remember those who have given their lives – not only in the First World War but in all subsequent conflicts – to give us the freedoms and peace we enjoy today. As in the past we will be supporting The Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal and poppies will be available at church on October 31, November 7 and 14.
You can join our worship services either in church, or live online via YouTube live. All you have to do is follow this link. The Livestream will start at 9.45 am.
If you are coming to the service, please download the bulletin to your phone or tablet, if you can, as we are printing fewer paper bulletins to avoid wastage.
Please also note that a medical mask (surgical, FFP2 or DIN KN95/N95) must be worn until you take your place.
If you want to include prayers for yourself or another during the Prayers of the People at any of our services, please send me an email

Poppies are available at church. All donations of whatever size will be gratefully received. The poppy is worn during the weeks leading to Remembrance Sunday and Armistice Day.
For some years now we have been making Christmas (shoe) boxes with Christmas gifts for children in Romania. If you would like to take part, please fill your shoe boxes with selected items from the list (available from the office). Please bring your (wrapped and packed) shoe boxes to church on Sunday, December 5 (Advent II). We have a list of children by name, age and gender. That way, the boxes can be individually addressed (perhaps even with a little card).
