Our Associate Vicar, Marcus Brown, writes:
The Church continues to be a quiet and safe haven for villagers and visitors seeking peace in the middle of a hectic life. It would not be such an attraction without the myriad of faithful supporters who clean the building and fill it with the most stunning flower arrangements. As a centre of village worship our numbers are fairly steady and over the Christmas period we were encouraged by the attendance at the Christmas Carol Service, which was nearly double that of last year.
Our Rector Geoff has gone through a period of poor health but he is now on the road to recovery, which is a great blessing.
Together with the rewards there are always problems with looking after an old building. We have had an oil spill, and the lintel to our side door is not as sound as it should be, so we will be looking at fund-raising opportunities in the village to help with the remedial work in putting these issues to rights. On the other hand we have been offered substantial support in getting our bells back to a position where all six of them can be pealed, whereas at the moment only three can be chimed.
On the whole we are blessed, and this blessing extends to our whole community, to those of all faiths and none.
