Back with you all after the summer break – what summer many will be asking. It has been awful. Fingers crossed we may have a drier autumn.
We had two events on the Village Green during July starting with St. Michael’s Garden Fete at the beginning of the month which following the recent pattern of other churches had a smaller attendance than previous years however was successful.
A new venture came a couple of weeks later in the form of Scrufts Dog Show (my apologies I wrongly named this in the last edition of The Broadsheet) which I understand went to plan. Brave organizers – never work with children or animals being a moto I remember.
A new school or new class or the first day for those with years ahead will be coming soon and once I start to receive information from Wark school I’ll keep you informed. They always have a full and varied programme of events.
Over the summer a number of children have been welcomed into the church through Baptism in St. Michael’s and we send blessings to them. The thoughts and prayers of all parishioners are extended to all those recently bereaved in the parish and beyond.
A reminder to PCC members the next meeting is on Tuesday 12th September at 7.00pm in church.
A service of Holy Communion will be held in St. Michael’s on Friday 29th September at 7.00pm to celebrate the festival of St. Michael and All Angels, our patron Saint.
Last time I promised you Harvest Festival details but at the moment I don’t have them. There will be notices around the village once the arrangements are completed.
Until we chat again,

Love to all JOHN xxx
