Our 2017 Plough Sunday Service
Our Plough Sunday was both very well attended and enjoyed by Children of all ages (!), finishing off with a a simple but hearty lunch of soup, hotdogs, cakes and coffee.
The offering at the service of £317.20 is being send to the RABI, the Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution, which is a welfare charity that supports farming people of all ages if they are in financial difficulty and of limited means.

A few members of the congregation that attended the service
The After School Club made this sleigh. They are only 5 - 11 years old so we think that they did amazingly well!
Carol Service Report
The Chapel was beautifully decorated with a tree, Yew, Ivy, bells, a Manger, and advent candles. The Carol Service was very well attended with friends old and new. The minister commented on the good singing which was led by the Soveriegn Band. Everybody said how much they had enjoyed the Service and we all stood around chatting, eating mince pies and drinking tea. It was such a joy to see so many people from the village joining us and as Revd. Roy said if we hadn't sang their favourite Carol we are sure to sing it in the coming weeks so be sure to come again!
The offering of £272 was given to The Chestnut Tree Children's Hospice
