Taize Chants during communion:


Eat this bread, drink this cup, come to him and never be hungry.

Eat this bread, drink this cup, trust in him and you will not thirst.


In the Lord I’ll be ever thankful, in the Lord I will rejoice!

Look to God, do not be afraid. Lift up your voices, the Lord is near. Lift up your voices, the Lord is near.

The Gloria:  We are singing a setting composed by our organist Andrew Elliott.

 Please Park Prettily

Would all churchgoers please park ONLY in Church Meadow (not in the road to Palace House) and also ensure that they leave access to some of the disabled spots in the Meadow close to the Church, for those with        limited mobility. The very few spaces in the car park  close to the Church Hall are normally reserved for clergy, and for blue badge holders. Thank you for your understanding.   FJ/PM


As you know, Peter Hackston will be relinquishing the post he has held for ten years. We are immensely grateful for the commitment and dedication he has brought to the task over these many years. There will be an opportunity to thank Peter publicly on Sunday 2nd September, his last Sunday in post. The Churchwardens are arranging a collection. Gifts may be directed to Sally Brearley or Peter Melhuish.   Fr John


This evening 6.30pm, in the Abbey Church, led by Hugh Ashley, followed by tea and cake.

 Family Picnic

Following the dramatic change in weather on the weekend of the   29th July, postponement looked the sensible option, however we kept faith and decided to go ahead with the event, albeit in the Abbey Hall and not my garden. Our resilience was rewarded with a successful and enjoyable afternoon. Thank you to Jane Noble, Flavia, Jenny & Miranda for their efforts and enthusiasm. We are planning more family events - the next probably near 5th November.                               FJ


Well done to everyone who set up, dismantled, ran the stall, donated items and supported this event in any way. The amount raised was £1238.27.                       FJ

Items for collection is ongoing & any donations at anytime is most welcome, especially for UHT milk 500ml, dried milk powder, small jars of coffee, sugar, tins of steak or mince, tinned soup, instant mashed potato & toiletries for male & female.
