Can you sing in tune?   Do you enjoy singing with others?   Could you attend a choir practice on a Friday evening from 6 pm and Sunday services and weddings?

If you answered yes to these, would you like to join our Choir?   We have a junior choir (7+)  and a senior choir, so all ages welcome.   

The senior choir sings at the 11 am Sunday service (and Evensong when it returns), plus most weddings and the occasional funeral.

If you can read music that will help, but isn't necessary.  

Our Director of Music and Choir Master, Mr Kim Rawson would love to hear from you, please contact him on kim.rawson@btinternet.com

Music Sheets

If you buy things from Amazon, then you can raise money for our church on Smile Amazon each time you make a purchase - exactly the same as normal Amazon but donations made for every purchase to the charity of your choice.

Just select our church from the list of charities on Smile Amazon.   

If you don't receive regular information emails from us, but would like to do so, then please let our Parish Administrator have your email address and we will add you to our contact list.

FOODBANK.jpg

Our church supports this Foodbank.   If you would like to donate, please contact Rev. Stuart for information or leave your non perishable donations in the box at the back of church.    Please see letter below from the foodbank.

You kindly donated  42.75kg of food to Kingfisher Foodbank on 26th November. Many thanks.

 

These current difficulties seem to be continuing for even longer than expected and even more people are having to cope with financial difficulties.

 

Winter is here and the effects of coronavirus continue to trap people in poverty.

Families have been the hardest hit, accounting for nearly two in five households needing to use a food bank.

Many children are going to find they will not have the Christmas they are used to.

 

However, your kindness and generosity has helped support people who have never needed help before.

 

Thank you again.
