150th anniversary of All Saints – 16 December

All Saints celebrates the 150th anniversary of its consecration on 16 December.  The Bishop of Lincoln has graciously agreed to to lead the celebration service, which is at 11 am (not the usual 9.30).  This will be followed by a celebration lunch in the Village Hall.  Further details to follow but please mark the date in your diary now.

Celebrate Saints and Heroes!

Harvest Thanksgiving and supper

Around 45 people attended the Harvest Thanksgiving service on Sunday 30 September to give thanks to God for all His gifts.  The church looked lovely and a selection of produce was on display.  This was later auctioned at the Harvest Supper, Nicholas Bennett acting as auctioneer.  Another career beckons, Nicholas!  The supper was also well attended and featured local delicacies such as Lincolnshire chine, followed by the usual delicious crumbles and pies, and, of course, Lincolnshire plum bread with cheese.  Almost £400 was raised for the church restoration fund.  Thanks to all who donated produce or dishes for the supper, decorated the church, did the washing up or helped in any other way!
