Church tomorrow

There is one service and it’s in church, St Peter’s, at 9.30am.  It’s a service of Holy Communion which we will celebrate with social distancing.  Please bring a face mask unless you’re exempt.

Tomorrow is Rogation Sunday when traditionally church congregations walked around the parish boundaries, even in the rain!  It’s a time of prayer for the crops and preparation for the Ascension when Jesus ascended to heaven.

All welcome in church.

Thank You

Val, Simon, Phil and Rosie want to thank everyone for their support over the last few weeks, and especially on Tuesday. It was very much appreciated to have so many friends and villagers at the church to welcome the funeral cortege, with special thanks going to the Parwich Oddfellows who gave a guard of honour for John.

There is an audio recording of the eulogy given by Mick Edge which we will try and post somewhere when technology allows, for those who were unable to come into the church and hear it in person.

Donations received are to be split between Ward 216 at Royal Derby and Cancer Research UK, the total currently stands at just over £800.

Thank you again x
