Carols by Candlelight

Our traditional candlelit service of lessons and carols will be held on Christmas Eve at 6.30pm.

Please note that this is a very popular service, often with standing room only so take your seats early.

Crib service, Christmas Eve, 3pm

As we had so many young children at our carol service last year, this year we are also having a Crib Service on Christmas Eve at 3pm. This will allow anyone that doesn’t want their children to be up at the later carol service an opportunity to join in the Christmas services.

We will build a crib scene in front of the altar with new large and robust figures which the children can handle, and we plan to sing carols and songs that they know as we tell the story and build the crib. Safe LED candles will be used!

The service will last about 30 minutes and biscuits and juice will be available afterwards.

Harvest supper update

Our village Harvest supper was once again held in the Church on Friday 15 September. We raised over £450 for church funds, so thanks to everyone who attended. The food was once again delicious.  Gordon and Wilma’s raffle and auction went down a treat!
We welcomed new residents from Rhodd’s Farm to the village.

We look forward to seeing everyone again at the Harvest events in October – the coffee and craft morning, Harvest Festival and tea, and the Quiz Night.

Harvest Supper – Friday 15th September

Our village Harvest Supper will once again be held in church on Friday 15th September at 7.30pm.

Tickets are £6 and available from Diana Fawcus and Mary Carter, or on the door.

Buffet and refreshments are provided and we will be holding a raffle. 

If you can help with the buffet, please do see the Churchwardens. 

 

Flowton Fete – thank you

Many many thanks to all who came and supported the Flowton Fete on 16th July. We only had a light shower this year (last year was a 2 hour downpour!) but we were well prepared. We had an amazing live band to support us, and some great games – the ladder game even required a throw off between John Prentice and Derek Mayhew to decide the winner.

There was a children’s and adult’s tombola run by Joanna Thomas which always is a great hit, bric-a-brac, a whole host of games from marble runs, key lock games, croquet and more, an amazing craft and jam stall from Susan Woods, plant sales from the Rawleys and so much more. We ventured away from the cream teas this year and sold slices of homemade cake with refreshments, plus takeaway options. This was a roaring success, mostly down to the coffee and walnut tray bake!!

We couldn’t do it without the support of all those who help – the cake bakers, Nick and his amazing signs, all those who gave up their afternoon to run the stalls and our crafters. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

We raised over £1000 this year which is a truly fantastic amount and will go to support the work of St. Mary’s Church in our community.

Jyoti Seva – our Christian Aid charity

We received a lovely reply from Jyoti Seva – our Church’s chosen Christian Aid charity for this year, following our donation. Do open their reply (click on the link below) and have a look at what they said. We choose to donate directly to support their work so 100% of the amount raised benefits the charity.
