After a wonderful summer and a very successful Patronal Festival at St Bartholomew’s in Maltby, the church is starting to plan for dark nights and cold days events. There was a lot of interest in the Patronal Festival. There were old photographs on display both of the church buildings over the years and of events in community members’ lives, including wedding photos and registers of baptisms and weddings over the last century. This made interesting reading!
The church hopes to attract as much interest in its WWI commemoration weekend on 3rd and 4th November. There will be war memorabilia and artefacts on display in church, including one of the moving perspex ‘Tommies’ in the church along with a model Tommie made by children in the model village. The display will be open on Saturday 3rd November from 11.00am to 3.00pm. There will be a special service on Sunday 4th November at 10.45am with the British Legion participating in the service. It is hoped there will be a church full of poppies (and people).
On 8th December St Bartholomew’s will be holding a Christmas Coffee Morning and Art Exhibition in church at 10.00am.
The coffee and chat mornings on Tuesday mornings in the church rooms continue to flourish. It’s free to come in, so come along and help to put the world to rights!
