We are very grateful to Iain Ross for including Church items in his excellent magazine. If you have anything for publication do send it to him.

Bishop Karen Gorham visited the chapter

After shorter 10.00am services everyone will gather in the Church Rooms to hear about necessary changes so that upgrade of the church building can proceed. The sustained ​growth in CafĂ© Church means we need to cater for extra numbers.

Fri 11 Nov, 10.45am Upwey Station Remembrance
100 years ago many families and friends waved their menfolk off as they boarded troop trains taking them to fight in Europe. Tragically for millions it was the last time they saw their loved ones. Railways stations are appropriate places to remember the cost of our freedom.

The next baptisms at the Springhead
After Sutton Poyntz' traditional 6.30pm open air carol service on Monday 19 December, there will be some baptisms in the Springhead pond. If you are interested please get in touch.

Rugby baptism for Noah
A healthy gathering of family and friends welcomed the start of Noah Jacob Clark's journey of faith. After the celebration the family posed for a picture at the chancel steps. His father Roger is a rugby coach, so Tim enjoyed putting in a few teasing references to the game and the challenge of faith.
