September 2018 News & Notes

Hymns & pimms are a good combination, as shown by the fun on display at St Osmund's. Thanks to David Parsons for leading the music, and singing a poignant solo. Traditional hymns were in the majority, but a few contemporary pieces stretched the repertoire.

Annabel is part of Go Bellistica youth band of bell ringers which came third in a national competition. Tom and Trish Garrett taught her basic skills, call-changes [simple patterns], and method ringing [complex patterns which produce tunes and huge variety]. If you want to know more just Google their name.

Hallie and Bonnie Brook had great support when they were baptised at St Andrew's, Preston. It was a lively happy occasion which included Holy Communion and/or blessing. Afterwards clan and friends gathered on the Church Rooms steps for a record of the gathering.

9 Sep, a Pet Service for all is being hosted 10.30am at St Osmund, Osmington. It's a great opportunity to thank God for companionship with creation, and you don't have to own a pet to take part. We have amazing RSPB and Dorset Wildlife Trust reserves on our doorstep, so it may be you'd like to give thanks for our home environment.Sam and Zoey Alvey pose after their July wedding, held on a very warm day with gentle sea breeze. It was a unique occasion reflecting the couple's tastes. No two services are alike, for each couple is unique.

17 Dec, Our next Springhead baptisms take place after 6.30pm Open Air Carols, lead by the Salvation Army Band. If you want to know more please make an appointment to see Canon Tim.
