A few of the lovely hamper prizes - see below for more details of how to donate and take part!!

Like many charities and organisations our Church has seen it’s income drastically drop during this pandemic.  Our regular and extraordinary fundraising events that are essential for the running and upkeep of this beautiful building, have been cancelled like everything else. 

So, this Christmas, instead of our fabulous Fayre, we are asking for your HELP  please by giving monetary donations and by way of  a thank you we will pop your names into a ‘hat’ for a LUCKY DIP PRIZE

We realise that some pockets are deeper than others even in normal times so we would appreciate anything you may feel able to give—there is no min or max donation! .

We will have several great prizes to give away including a Christmas Hamper, a Pamper Hamper, a Children’s Hamper and a Sweet Bouquet.

Christmas Memory Tree

For several years the big conifer in the Churchyard has been festooned with many white angels with personal messages in memory of loved ones inscribed on them. If you wish to have your own memory angel placed on the tree, this service will be available from Saturday 5th, 12th and 19th December between 9.30am and 12 noon.  Peter, Jennifer and their friends will be available either in the church or churchyard, depending on restrictions on those dates, so that you have the opportunity to remember loved ones in this special way.  The team are also offering home delivery  service for those whose circumstances do not allow them to come to the church.  Please do ring 822700 and it will be arranged with you at a mutually convenient time .  

The Angels will remain on the tree over Christmas until 12th Night.
