The Vicar's Monthly Message

01/04/2018

Easter Day is on Sunday 1st April, so we’ll begin this month by wishing each other “a Happy Easter”. At the 9.30am Service at church that day the bells will ring out and we shall sing the lovely Easter hymns. In the Bible, the 40 days after Easter were a time of tranquillity for the Apostles and after the long hard winter we look forward to spring flowers and warmer weather.

Our thoughts turn to our homes and gardens – to spring-cleaning and planting out. In the parish, we have our church to care for. All Church of England churches are inspected every five years and we have just received our Quinquennial Report from the Diocesan Architect.

For a building of its age (and there has been a church here for a thousand years) St Michael & All Angels Church is in good shape. There are, however, some defects and signs of wear and tear to put right. We have recently installed more efficient light-bulbs and improved the lighting in the nave and we hope to install a new light in the sanctuary.

It would be good also to have better heating; and a speaker-system would be an asset at large services, weddings and funerals. But these are ideas for the future and would require a great deal of fund-raising. We shall be discussing church matters at our Annual Parochial Church Meeting in Church on Sunday, 22nd April at 3.00pm and all on the electoral roll are welcome to attend this.

Spring-time is also a time when our thoughts turn to spring fashions and new outfits, so do come to the Fashion Show in the Parish Hall on Saturday, 28th April - 7.00pm for 7.30pm.

One thing we can be proud of in our village church is the bells and Jo Beavan has written an article about them. A delight of English village life is the sound of church bells on a lovely sunny day!
