Ring out the Bells!
It is great not only to celebrate our return to church with song, but also to hear the church bells ring out once again. Listen out for the bells this coming Thursday, and Saturday, as we celebrate the marriages of Joshua Stitt to Annabelle Riches, and also Samuel Knight to Alexandra Merson. If you would like to try your hand at bellringing, the ringers would love to share their skills with you. It is convivial, friendly, and (incidentally) a great work out for your arms, shoulders and upper body. The ringers meet (in church) every Wednesday evening at 7.30pm for an hour or so. Just turn up, or if you’d like to ring ahead, call David Dickens on 681741.

Praise God for the Harvest
I hope your garden has been both inspiring and fruitful this year. Whether you wish to celebrate flower, shrub, or fruit, Sunday week (3rd October) sees a choice of Harvest services across the Team ministry. Do join us, wherever you are, to give thanks to God for his provision and to pray for all those involved in both the agriculture and the food industries. At Checkendon we welcome once again Frances and Steve from the Ways and Means Trust at Manor Farm, Peppard with their produce stall. Do come along and help us support our local mental health charity. At Stoke Row Revd Angela will be officiating at your harvest service and auction of produce.
May the Lord look kindly upon you and give you his peace.
