He is risen indeed!  Alleluia!

Church annual meeting - 19 April

The Annual Parish Meeting (APM) and the Annual Parochial Church Meeting (APCM) - the church's AGM - will be held on Tuesday 19 April at 7.30 pm in church.

Why two meetings, you may ask?  The APM is to elect the two churchwardens who will serve for the following year.   Anyone on the civil electoral register – anyone entitled to vote in government elections – or on the church electoral roll may attend the meeting.   The APCM immediately follows and is to receive the accounts, the fabric report and the report of the Parochial Church Council (PCC), and to elect the PCC and sidespersons for the following year.  Anyone on the church electoral roll is entitled to attend.  We have six elected members of the PCC.

Please join us on 19 April! We promise not to elect you as PCC member or sidesperson unless you actually volunteer!

Valentine's night quiz

Thanks to all who supported this and helped in any way to make it such a success.  The magnificent sum of £323 was raised for church funds.

Morning Prayer

From this week, Lorna will hold a service of Morning Prayer at 8.45 am on Tuesdays and Thursdays at Branston, Wednesdays at Nocton and Fridays at Potterhanworth.  This is a formal service similar to Matins, not an informal and spontaneous prayer service.  Please feel free to join Lorna at any of the churches in the benefice for this quiet and prayerful start to the day.
