The weekend of Saturday 5th October and Sunday 6th October, from 10.00am to 4.00pm is Thanksgiving Weekend. On Sunday at 10.00am there is a Harvest Thanksgiving in the church — all are welcome to thank God for the life and witness of the church for nearly 900 years, and its continuation today, with an opportunity to give to support the future of the church and graveyard.
There will also be a display of the history of St Nicholas Church, an activity table for children, tea, coffee and biscuits and a chance to pray in the chancel and to light a candle to remember someone you love.

It’s that time of year again, when the benefice begin to think about the Christmas Boxes — last year they managed nearly 40. This year, once again thanks to the generosity of one of our supporters, there will be no need for folk to provide their own boxes or indeed to wrap them. They shall be able to supply anyone or group of people who is interested in filling a box with flat pack boxes, already decorated, which simply need folding.
As you may be aware, these boxes should contain toiletry items (no liquids of any sort), toys, drawing equipment and general stationery, sweets with a best before date well into Spring 2019 (no chocolate), woolly hats and mittens, also mostly provided by one of our generous supporters, and anything that kids who have almost nothing would like. Boys and girls boxes are kept separate, and there are three age groups: two to four, five to nine and 10 to 14, and all items should be new. Hand-made toys are not permitted and all soft toys must carry the ‘CE’ label. This is due to customs regulations and concerns the fillings.
If you are interested and would like further information, please contact Janet Carlisle on 01777 870058 or email janetmaryncarlisle@btinternet.com.
