We now enter a period of the church calendar called Epiphany where we focus on the arrival of the Magi and the revealing of the importance of Jesus. This seems like a good time to start some new things.
Perhaps you might want to attend a service or have a chat about faith. We now have a new pattern of services which looks like:
Each calendar month,
1st Sunday 10:30 service with Communion
2nd Sunday 09:00 service with Communion
16:30 Prayer and a pint in the Blue Bell
3rd Sunday 10:30 Family Praise (No Communion) followed by coffee
4th Sunday 09:00 Service with Communion from the book of Common Prayer
5th Sunday (if there is one) 10:30 Benefice service at King’s Cliffe
February sees the introduction of a Non-Eucharistic (No Communion) service called Family Praise. This is where the whole church family can come together and join in worship. There will be hymns and worship songs, prayers, activities, bible reading and a sermon. This will be a less formal service and afterwards there will be an opportunity to have a coffee and a chat. Children are particularly welcome.
Please get in touch if you have any questions of comments and I wish everyone a happy, healthy and joyful new year.
Grace and peace,
Rev’d Keir Dow

Book & Games exchange
Read a good book lately?
Maybe you have, and although it was great you don’t want to keep yet another book. But you would like something else to read? Well, a solution is close to hand! The Church has a space set aside for a book exchange: there’s everything from picture books for the really young first reader, through to thrillers, romance, war, and just about every genre. How it works is simple – if you have books to donate, please bring them along and put them underneath the tables (just to the left of the inner doors) whilst we still need to take coronavirus precautions. Then, browse through the available selection and take a book or two away. You can, of course, bring them back when you’ve finished, so someone else can enjoy them!
And there’s more: there are also some games – and the same principle applies.
The Church is usually open from around 9.30 until 6.30 (or dusk when we get into the shorter days) every day.
