Services this month at Buckland Newton

The church is open every day from 9.30 am thru’ 5.30 pm every day for private prayer. Traditionally there is NO all-age service in August, however, following the successful Activity Day last year, there will be a similar event in the second week of August. Last years activities included clay, music- making, storytelling, singing, collage and rubbings. Details will be promoted nearer the time via flyers, emails and the Buckland Newton Community Facebook page. As last year, we plan to round off the mornings activities with a picnic lunch. If interested in helping or bringing your children, it would be helpful to know, either ring Helen 345401 or Jan 348627 or email hrlsimpson@yahoo.co.uk or Jan on greystonebn@yahoo.co.uk PS * All-age means just that, the service is aimed at everyone young in age or heart, you don’t need to come with a child or be one to qualify!

With the new heating system the church has a more welcoming atmosphere and seems therefore, easier to clean, and we are trying a new approach of a group clean every few months. It is proposed that in- between the BIG CLEAN there is a fortnightly rota to ensure everything stays in order. To this end a group of us met recently and beavered away removing the dust and cobwebs of the last year, which had gathered during the three lockdowns, the church having to be locked had prevented the usual regular attention. We would welcome any new recruits, as ’Many hands make light work’. If like me you find housework irksome and a chore I can assure you that it’s much more rewarding and enjoyable to work in a group, taking just one area in which to concentrate one’s efforts. And as if a gleaming brass isn’t enough of a reward there’s a slice of Liz’ delicious sponge to accompany a well earned cuppa with a chat to round off the afternoon. Please join us....and thanks for reading this far!
