To be a Pilgrim

Over the next few months we will be exploring what it means to be a pilgrim on our Christian journey.  There will be different opportunities and formats - pilgrims come in different shapes and sizes!  Rev Canon David White started us off on 22 January with his thought-provoking sermon on 'To be a pilgrim'.  For those who missed it, please click on the link below.

Christmas blessings

Perhaps during Christmas, more than any other time, we fail to hear God's voice.  Distractions abound, and at a time when our focus should be on our blessings and our Saviour, we're tuned in to other things that seem more pressing.  But on Christmas Day, make the choice to open your heart, mind, and spirit and listen for God's voice.

A very happy, peaceful and blessed Christmas to you all.

Carol singing

Thanks to all who supported Monday night's carol singing round the village - all those who sang (ably accompanied by David on the guitar) and those who came out to listen or gave us money. We raised just over £100 which is fantastic! This will be shared between the church and Hope into Action, a Christian charity supporting homeless people. Also a huge thank you to Lorna and Elaine who revived us with mulled wine and mince pies at the village hall!

Carol singing

Just a reminder about carol singing round the village tomorrow (Monday) - we are meeting at The Cottage care home at 6 pm before inflicting ourselves on the Main Street / The Green area. Mulled wine & mince pies in the village hall at the end! This year we are supporting Hope into Action, a charity working with the homeless.

Remembrance Assembly

A school assembly will be held in Nocton Church on Friday 11 November 2016, for Remembrance Day. The assembly will commence at 10.30 am. You are welcome to come along and join us, together with family and friends.

British Legion Poppy Appeal 2016

Our school is supporting the British Legion Poppy Appeal 2016.

This year along with the normal poppy badges, we have a selection of children’s poppy items, including snap wrist rulers, friendship bracelets, small boxes of crayons, reflector poppies and wrist bands. If you wish to purchase any of these, British Legion suggest a donation of £1.00 for bracelets and snap rulers and 50p for wristbands, reflectors and pencils.

Donations go towards a wide range of services and support for our veterans, serving personnel and their families.

Kind regards

H Bunting (Mrs)
Deputy Headteacher, Nocton Community Primary School

Dangerous gravestones

Many of the gravestones in Nocton churchyard are potentially unsafe and a few are in significant danger of falling. If anyone can help locate the families of the people on the linked document, please contact me or the Rector, Lorna Brabin-Smith, on 01522 794868. If we are unable to arrange with the families for the gravestones to be secured, we will apply for permission to move them. Thanks for your help - you will appreciate that moving the headstones is a last resort so we would really like to work with the families to get this sorted.

Update on Macmillan coffee morning

Latest news - the final total raised was £310.  Didn't you do well!  Thanks again to everyone who supported this.
