Service of Remembering
Our annual All Souls Service of Remembering will take place on Sunday 31 October at 6.00 pm in church. If there are any last minute additions to the list of those to be remembered by name, please contact the Parish Office by first thing on Friday 29 October.
Winter Warmer Lunch
It was good to see our Fun(d) Raising Group back in full swing at the Harvest Lunch, after their initial summer event. Likewise the Flower Team in a beautifully harvest decorated church. Don’t forget to book your place for the Winter Warmer Lunch on Sunday 7 November at 12.00 in the Hall - see p. 11 for details.
As well as our normal Parish Eucharist on Sunday 28 November, we shall also hold our usual service for the beginning of Advent on that day at 6.00 pm – it’s entitled “The Light at the End of the Tunnel”, a service of readings and music for Advent.
St Andrew’s Day
The service for our patronal festival, Tuesday 30 November, will be an evening Sung Eucharist at 7.30 pm, led by our choir. Details in the weekly newsletter or on-line, as usual.
It is with sadness that we mark the passing Sharon Middleton, wife of one our servers, Martin “Spud” Middleton. We extend our love and prayers to Spud and his family at this difficult time. Sharon’s funeral will be at Hatch Beauchamp Parish Church on Wednesday 3 November at 1.00 pm.
It was also good to be able to give thanks for the life of Joyce Izzard, who died on 26 September, not many months after her husband Mike, and whose funeral was held at Taunton Crematorium on 18 October. Joyce was another faithful member of the St Andrew’s church family. Joyce was always positive even in the face of adversity and always a pleasure to visit. We extend our love and prayers to Nigel, Carole and all the family.
