PARISH FELLOWSHIP LUNCH
Our fourth season of Lunches at Churchfields Barn starts on Tuesday
9 October: we meet at 12 noon for 12.30pm for a two-course meal with coffee.
Further dates arranged for 2018 are a Breakfast at 10.00am on Monday
3 December and our Christmas meal on Tuesday 11 December.
Please let Barbara Jauncey (01905 454396) know in advance if you would like to come to any of these events - transport can be arranged.
As you may have seen on TV and be aware there is a request for all church bells to be rung at 12.30pm on Sunday 11 November 2018 to mark the historic occasion of 100 years since the Armistice was signed to end World War I. At Salwarpe we only have 2 defined Bellringers and I want to try to increase this to at least 6, as we have 6 Bells. I am willing to teach people at any time, morning/afternoon/or evening, as I am now retired.
Please be aware it takes time to ring a bell safely, not just one period. I would suggest that the person is aged over 12 years (because of ringing the bells up) and be able and willing to climb the spiral staircase, which is accessed by a door at the rear of the church.
If you wish to try, please contact me, Brian Wetherall, using the enquiries@ button on our Contact page, to arrange a visit and see if you wish to continue.
COMMEMORATION OF THE FAITHFUL DEPARTED
As part of our service on Sunday 4 November we shall be remembering loved ones no longer with us.
If you would like the name of someone who has died to be read out during this service, please give name(s) to Barbara Jauncey (01905 454396) by 28 October at the latest.
