Benefact – February – March 2017

0 comments

Another two months has once again flown by and here we are now a month into a New Year. I hope that you all had a Blessed and Peaceful time and were not stricken by the “bug” as so many of us were.

 

First of all a catch up on previous events:

 

Advent Carol Service – This was a completely new service for most of us and involved the whole of the Benefice. A special atmosphere was created by the candle holders down the aisle of the church and readings were given from each in turn as well as other relevant areas such as font. Thanks to Rob and the team for arranging this special service and hopefully it will become an annual event.

 

The community meal on 30th November was enjoyed by almost 50 of us and was a very convivial time. Thank you Lesley.

 

Messy Church was attended by just a few families but was a very festive time followed by lunch and mince pies. Next Messy Church will be on 12th February

In Hadnall Village Hall at usual time of 10.30 am. Watch out for Posters.

 

There were so many events and Services over Christmas that it is impossible to report on each individually but so many families joined us for such events as Carols round the tree, the Coffee Mornings in the Hall and in the Church with the Hand Bells ringers and the Crib Service, that the church rang to the rafters with singing and praise. Thanks to everyone for Mulled Wine, Refreshments, decorations, floral arrangements, lights etc. and not forgetting the W.I for the Carol Service. Once again a very special time of Community, Worship and Praise. It wouldn’t happen without so many helpers and thank you all for your hard work.

 

Our Coffee mornings continue as usual on the first Saturday of the month in the Church (£1.00 for all you eat or drink) and the third Thursday in someone’s house. Unfortunately January was not as well advertised as we would hope but was still enjoyed by those who went to Jan’s on Thursday 19th. February will be on 16th at 1 Pool Drive. Saturday mornings are 4th Feb and 4th March. Do please come and join us at them all. Everyone welcome.

 

The 2017 Calendar of Coffee Mornings for the rest of the year (Thursday one’s) has still not been finalised so watch this space.

 

Our next Fund Raising Function is the U3A Ukulele Band Concert in the church on Saturday 18th Feb. Tickets are now on sale at £5.00 from PCC members.

 

Services revert to normal with Rob and Pat’s return on 4th Feb and we wish them a safe journey home.

 

Thanks to The Archdeacon and Canon William for leading our services in January during Rob’s absence and my apologies for not being able to cover all Morning Prayer Services as expected.

 

Finally a big thank you to everyone who helps to keep our church running in any way, shape or form. We certainly couldn’t manage without any of you.
