The Grapevine December 2023:January 2024


Christmas is coming and the New Year is ahead, hopefully one that will bring peace to us all.

Our Christmas double issue gives details of our many seasonal events and there are Christmas greetings from a number of the congregation.  There is an item on our Service of Remembrance and a short feature on the church garden, lovingly tended by one of our members over many years, sometimes with a little help from his friends.  There is news of a new artist with ArtPeace, Panashe, whose work has already been exhibited in Holland and Germany, and we look forward to receiving some of his work soon.  We are encouraged to save stamps which can be donated to Save the Children Fund.  The local MENCAP Christmas Fair was a resounding success and raised a record amount of £2,800 to the delight of all who organised it.  There is a piece on the local Food Bank which, although in what is considered to be a relatively affluent area, is still much in demand and we are encouraged to contribute (including dog and cat food!).  Our new Facebook and Instagram pages are up and running and we hope that it will prove popular, encouraging outreach in different ways.  We wish you happiness at Christmas and all the very best for 2024.
