We are marking our Patronal Festival in several ways this year.

We begin on Friday 26 with a sleepover in the Vicarage garden for our children and young people (8 years and over). I must be mad to have suggested it, but it seemed like a good idea at the time. I am hoping there might be at least a little sleep involved … Parents need to fill in a permission form if they want their children to take part.

On Saturday June 27 we have an organ concert by Keith Hearnshaw. He will be bringing a big screen on which the audience will be able to watch him playing, so if you’ve ever wondered how organists manage to produce such a wonderful sound (and play with their hands and feet at the same time!) this is the event for you. The programme will be of popular organ classics, so there’s sure to be something for everyone in it.

Tickets (on the door) cost £5 for adults and £2.50 for children and profits go to church funds.

On Sunday 28th we’ll be celebrating the feast of St Peter and St Paul in our morning communion service. In the afternoon there’s a Strawberry Tea in the Vicarage Garden from 4- 6pm. We finish the weekend with an evening service of readings, hymns and prayers celebrating the lives of our patron saints at 6.30 pm
