Parish magazine September 2020

September is a time of new beginnings. In many respects, this year is no different and yet, oh so different! At last our churches are open again for worship “almost as usual”! And we’re all beginning to settle a little and adapt to this new world. The summer hasn’t been as busy as usual, although…

Parish magazine Summer 2020

Who’d have thought that we’d have a third issue completed during lockdown! We thrive on personal contact, so it’s a big challenge to share our thoughts when that contact is so drastically curtailed. And yet our lovely band of contributors continues to write and we, once again, have a Parish magazine full of news and…

Parish magazine June 2020

Here we are with a second issue of this magazine completed during lockdown! I know a few of our usual contributors met my reminder email with a sigh, wondering what they would write…. and I have to admit that I researched a few extra articles, just in case…. But I needn’t have worried, as you’ll…

Parish magazine May 2020

There was never any doubt in my mind that, during these unsettling times, we wouldn’t publish a Parish magazine. I hope you enjoy the varied contributions in this issue. There are lots of stories of what we’re all up to (and the gems we’re uncovering as we clean and sort!), an interesting commentary on isolation…

Parish magazine April 2020

So much has happened in the last month. Who could have predicted that our churches, schools, pubs, clubs, restaurants and other public venues would be closed, that we would all be at home, practising social distancing and thinking carefully about how we shop for food and other essentials. We have a whole new vocabulary – social distancing,…

Parish magazine March 2020

After a packed and busy magazine for the beginning of the year, this March issue has a gentler, more settled feel – perhaps appropriate as we are in Lent and in a time of prayer, contemplation and thoughtfulness. That’s not to say there haven’t been events and gatherings in all our churches – and lots of…

Parish magazine Lent 2020

They say that if you have 20/20 vision, your eyesight is ‘perfect’! I don’t know about ‘perfect’ but from the wide and varied contributions I’ve received for this magazine, I do know that there are lots of you that are very good at looking back and looking forward! Thank you all for your amazing contributions. Many of the articles look back at…

Parish magazine December 2019

It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas! Although I have to say, it’s quite strange to see election leaflets and posters vying for space with the usual Christmas cards and decorations. As they say, “we live in interesting times!” And this month’s magazine is full of interesting things – a real mix of content…

Parish magazine November 2019

It’s a good job I like jigsaws because this month’s magazine has been just that. Thank you so much for all the amazing contributions this month – it’s certainly kept me quiet piecing it all together! The usual news from across the Parish is particularly chatty this month and Deborah’s talk at the Mothers’ Union…

Parish magazine October 2019

Harvest is a time of celebration and we certainly have lots to celebrate in this issue. Once again, the pages are packed full of goodies from across the Parish. It’s been a month of food and fundraising too. Cream Teas, Coffee Mornings, Cycle Rides and (Half) Marathon Running! Busy people and lots of monies raised…
