Over the last few months Christ Church has become the new home for a pair of Peregrine Falcons. They use the highest part of the tower for a 360 observation point, and a place to call home. The bonus is we see two magnificent birds and enjoy their calling to each other, the other bonus is the decreasing numbers of ferel pigeons that plague the Vicarage, the down side is the natural waste outside the front door of Church!
In the Parish we are now operating our services slightly differently, Midweek Eucharists are now to be shared by both Churches together, always on a Wednesday and at 10:00. We will alternate between Churches as follows:
Wednesday 12th, 26th at Holy Trinity
Wednesday 19th October and 2nd November at Christ Church
a fortnightly rotation is the new pattern, we hope not to become too confused!
We also have our joint Sunday services, 1st Sunday each month at Holy Trinity, and 3rd Sunday at Christ Church.
This year we are holding our special services to remember all those who have lost loved ones and whose funerals we have taken on a midweek night not on a Sunday.
Christ Church remembrance at 19:00 on Thursday 10th November and Holy Trinity remembrance at 19:00 on Thursday 17th November.
The Architect has visited Holy Trinity to make all measurements to enable plans for the rebuilding of the Parish Room, and has undertaken to inspect the Church to look at all the required work to bring the building up to standard, and hopefully a full redecoration.
Christ Church has received all the custom made lighting units and they will be fitted during the first two weeks of November.
Do you remember at Christ Church we had holding Crosses made from wood salvaged when the Choir Stalls were removed? Well we have aquired more Crosses made form our pews. These are available from myself or from Christ Church at a price of £10 includind a commemoration and a pouch to keep your Cross in. Happy to post these put to you if you would like one, do contact me on email@example.com
