CHRISTMAS TREE FESTIVAL

CHRISTMAS FARE AT ACRES DOWN FARM SHOP

ALL SAINTS CHURCH 
Last Sunday’s delightful 5 Candles Service was taken by Gill Gibbons for the 54th time!  Thank you, Gill, what a record!

All Saints’ Church Christmas Tree

Again this year an invitation to share the remembrance of a loved one at Christmas.   The tree is decorated and in church already.  Fill in a name tag (names will not be read out) and help to decorate the tree.  Blank tags will be in a box on the front left pew on the nave, or use your own.  This year our service of readings and carols is at 4pm on Sunday 16th December.  Please do join us in a joyous Christmas celebration.

See All Saints for further information about services and events.

Follow All Saints Church on Facebook and visit the Benefice website for more information.

CAROLS ON THE GREEN

Don’t forget there will be Carols on the Green outside the Trusty from 6pm on Saturday 22nd December.  We are expecting Father Christmas to make an appearance on his sleigh at about 6.30pm to give out presents to the well behaved.

(parents please leave with the Trusty beforehand, value below £5).

This will be followed by a show by the world famous Mummers of Minstead led by Nick Mellersh.  Curious?
