Both our churches will hold services of Remembrance for this Centenary of the end of the First World War.
Debbie will lead the service in Pitton and the guest speaker is Colonel (Retd) Mike Hart, OBE, QGM. Please do bring your Tower of London poppies to stand with the silhouette of the Tommy in the churchyard. The Pitton Choir will be singing at the service.
In Farley the service will be lead by LLM Michael Barratt. Michael has planned a special talk. Both services will be followed by refreshments. I believe that both churches will hold their collections for the Royal British Legion but this will be confirmed at the services.
Please scroll down for the Team notices and please continue to pray for the Appointment process as we enter a second round of applications.
Thank you all for your support for All Saints’ and St Peter’s. It is the people who bring life to our buildings.
With very best wishes for a happy weekend from Jane and Sara

For the attention of Winterslow
If anyone would like to be part of a group to sing one or two extra carols at the service of Nine Lessons and Carols on Dec 23rd please let me know as soon as possible. I anticipate we would need two or three practices to be convened to suit those who want to come.
