Next Messy Church Sunday 7th October at 4.00pm - theme - Harvest; Sunday 4th November at 4.00pm - theme - Light
Messy Church is held on the first Sunday of the month at 4.00pm at St Chad's Church. Come along and join our growing congregation - this is a new and exciting form of worship. Messy Church is a fun based family service for people of all ages. Each service includes a number of craft activities, songs, a story and some prayers, all based on the theme for the day. We start with coffee, tea or juice with biscuits and finish with a shared buffet-style tea at 5.00 - 5.30pm
The increase of the size of the village means we have had to increase the number of Over the Wall magazines to be distributed. As a result we need more people to deliver them. Please, can you help in this important job? If you can please contact the Vicar on 270270. Thank you

A Time to Remember Service
St Chad's annual 'A Time To Remember' Service will take place on Sunday the 28th of October at 6:30pm. This service has hymns, poems and readings and gives the opportunity to light a candle for a loved one or friend who has died. Refreshments will be served after the service.
Let's Not Forget - A Concert at St Chad's
To mark the 100 years since the signing of the Armistice, St Chad's will be putting on a "Good Old Days!" style concert on Friday 9th November at 7pm. This will be an evening of nostalgia for the whole family, with sing-along Music Hall songs, poems and readings from the Western Front. There will be rations during the interval and much flag waving. Do save the date and come along to this community event. Dressing in period costume optional!
This year marks one hundred years since the ending of hostilities in 1918. To mark the occasion St Chad's will have a Said Communion Service at 9:30am followed by an Act of Remembrance at 11am at the War Memorial and a Church Service will then follow on after that. As part of the Commemorations, the church bells will be rung from 12 noon until 1pm, as they did in 1918 when war ended. All Churches throughout the country have been asked to do this as a mark of respect for all those who gave their lives that we may enjoy the freedoms that we have today.
