October 2019 News & Notes

A good farewell for Lorraine Dobbins included many goodbyes, a social occasion, a traditional Holy Communion, and a contemporary time of worship. Her family received prayers and a collection to speed them on their way. We continue to pray for Christ Church, Warminster as she begins her ministry. We also pray for St Francis during the vacancy, and that we find the right person to take things forward.

Thanks for beautiful churchyards and gardens which are kept in such good order by many hours of patient effort. We are always on the lookout for volunteers to share the privilege, so do get in touch if you'd like to help. Upkeep of individual spaces is the responsibility of families concerned.

Anthony Matthews and Anna Frith married on a Wednesday. They left the church through a guard of honour, and toasted each other's health at the lychgate.
Each couple is different, so no two marriages are the same. We take care to craft what is right for families concerned, and bookings are already coming in for 2021.

David Carr served in the Royal Engineers so it was fitting to honour his time with them by laying his ashes on their flag. After a reading, silence, and prayers we laid them to rest in the churchyard.
Grieving is a privilege for those who mourn loved ones, and all are welcome to join services to remember them.
