NEWS FROM THE PEWS! :

There wasn’t a PCC meeting in June and the July meeting, so news from the pews will have to wait until next month.

Just a reminder that we are considering having an Open Gardens Weekend in Barford next year (probably late May or June) following the success of the ones held in Wasperton. If this is something you might like to be involved in, then please put a note in your diary for September 10th when there will be a meeting in church (with lunch provided) where the plans will be discussed in more detail.

As before the church services are timetabled on this website and other key dates and events will be detailed or advertised separately.

We invite you and the family to join us at our monthly Coffee Morning. It's an opportunity to get to know us better. We serve complimentary refreshments including coffee, tea and hot chocolate along with a selection of breakfast items such as bacon butties, hot waffles and warm croissants.

We also support Fairtrade so come and have a look at the items on our Fairtrade table. When you purchase any product with the FAIRTRADE mark on it you are supporting farmers and workers as they work to improve their lives and their communities.

CHILDREN IN CHURCH :

Do you have small children? Do you worry about bringing them to church in case they make a noise? We understand this concern but would like to reassure you that at Barford there are toy bags for children and you are welcome to take one to a corner at the back of the church and let them play there. At Sherbourne too there are toys for children at the back of church.

We would be happy to welcome you at any of our services but you may find 9.30am services on the second and fourth Sundays of the month at Barford to be most suitable for young people and third Sunday services at Sherbourne at 11.00am.

We look forward to welcoming you and your children.

David Jessett
