The Remembrance Sunday service was well attended even with some of our regulars away. The centenary of the end of the First World War made it a specially thought provoking time. As well as the wreath and the named poppies for more recent conflicts, several members of the congregation laid individual poppies. The choir also sang.


In December the Carol service will be on the 23rdat 3pm. Everyone is most welcome and there will be refreshments afterwards. On Christmas Eve, a Monday this year, there will be a 10 pm “midnight” service.


On the last Sunday in December there will be a team service in Shirwell at 11am to celebrate the passing of the old year and to welcome 2019.
