St. Benedict’s Church (2018)

Christmas Eve

People came together for Midnight Communion on 24th December to share in the joy of the birth of Jesus.

Celtic Christmas Service 16th December

The Celtic Christmas Service on the Third Sunday of Advent was well-attended, and provided an experience for both the head and the heart. It was a candle-lit worship that gave people a chance to reflect, and to find peace, in the knowledge that they are loved.

Armistice Day 11th November

The Communion Service was held at 9.30am, followed by an Act of Remembrance at the War Memorial in the Churchyard. It was a very moving Act of Remembrance, and a Tribute to the 24 young men who used to live in this small country community, and were lost in the Great War. A named poppy was painted on slate, and each slate was placed below the War Memorial to commemorate those servicemen. We will remember them.
