Postponement of Rise and Shine at St Michael's Church

Due to current circumstances at St Michael's Church we have decided to postpone the start of Rise and Shine (our planned new monthly worship for all ages to be held monthly 9am on the First Sunday). We had hoped we would start at the beginning of February but we will start later this year. On Sunday 6th February we will hold a 9am Communion Service in St Michael's. I'll keep you posted on the start up time for Rise and Shine!. 

With apologies and best wishes, Rev Alison

Fake Heritage - solving mysteries

I've been made aware of a new publication which looks at fourteen archaeological mysteries/controversies arising out of fakes or misrepresentations over the period 1830s-1930s.

One of the chapters is devoted entirely to Pen Pits. It focusses on the row between Winwood and Kerslake and is an important turning point in…

3 missing Hens

Hi, if anyone has seen 3 hens, (they have disappeared from The Croft on Chapel lane), please can you let us know. We have a white one, a black one and a brownish one with white speckles. They are quite independent and often potter up the lane and along the verges but always come home - except they didn't return on Monday evening and we haven't seen them since. Thanks, Helen

Thank you

A huge “Thank you” from St Michael’s Church to everyone who so generously contributed to our Harvest event on Sunday, from decorating the church, setting up, providing food, cooking, serving, eating, or just plain spending money, and then clearing away at the end.  It was an enormous success and of course we must not forget the blessing of perfect weather too.  

We raised £293.37 from church, auction and gift aid donations which will be donated to the Royal Agricultural…
