Baptism Tea Party 2014

 

Each year St Mary’s holds a Baptism Tea Party for children who have been baptised in our church in recent years.

This year’s Party was on Sunday, 16th November.

The afternoon started in Church with singing, then the story of Daniel in the Lion’s den, led by Fiona Dawson, in the absence of an ‘ill’ Rector.

                    

 

 

Followed by craft activities…..

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Then, everyone adjourned to the Church Hall for tea and, for the children, the opportunity to play with some of the toys.

Remembrance Sunday at St Mary’s

 

St Mary’s church was full on Sunday for the annual Remembrance Service. The Act of Remembrance took place in front of the memorial to the 94 members of the parish who lost their lives in the 1914 – 1918 war.

The Remembrance words were spoken by Jim Beaumont, a veteran of the Second World War. Jim is photographed below with fellow veteran, Norman Bebbington.
