Notes from the Vicar
Now, I know this is the dreaded ‘C’ word in October but; before you all go buying your Christmas cards we thought that environmentally and economically it seems unwise for us all to exchange cards with other members of the church family when we will be seeing them regularly in the festive season. This year in each church there will be a large communal Christmas card in which you can express your seasonal messages for the church family and the money you have saved you could pop into the collection which we will send to the Children’s Society.
