  1. A message from Michael White:

    Once again, Iwan and I would very much like to invite you to sing in the choir for the carol service which will be held on the evening of Sunday 20 December. Rehearsals for this will take place on Sundays 22 and 29 November, and 6 and 13 December at 4.30pm in the New Church. There will, of course, be a final rehearsal on the day of the carol service. Ideally, we would like you to attend all the rehearsals but please try to come to as many as you can remembering that the final rehearsal is compulsory.

    We are holding an Advent carol service on the evening of Sunday 29 November but are intending to include mainly solo items so that the choir can concentrate on the carol service music.

    We have not yet finalised the repertoire but will let you know as soon as we can.

    Please could you let me know if you are able to sing in the choir at the carol service and also if you are planning to attend Midnight Mass on Christmas Eve because, depending on numbers, we would like the choir to sing at that service too if possible. It would also be useful if you could give me an indication of which rehearsals you are unable to attend.

    So just to recap, dates are: Sunday 22 November, 4.30pm Rehearsal
    Sunday 29 November, 4.30pm Rehearsal
    Sunday 29 November, 7.00pm Advent Carol Service
    Sunday 6 December, 4.30pm Rehearsal
    Sunday 13 December, 4.30pm Rehearsal
    Sunday 20 December, 4.30pm Rehearsal
    Sunday 20 December, 7.00pm Carols by Candlelight
    Thursday 24 December 11.30pm Midnight Mass

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    There was a huge response to the call for donations for refugees in Calais via St Mary's and the Rose & Crown. This was all taken over at the end of October to some of the people who need it. This is a photo of Flossie sorting it all out at the back of church.

  4. AllSouls

    We held a moving service for All Souls in The Old Church yesterday evening. Remembering our own loved ones who have died; that they are held by a loving God. We particularly remember George Mills, long-standing member of St Mary's, who died recently.
