Sun shines for outdoor service and parish barbecue

Fortune favours the brave!

Thank you to everyone who supported our first attempt (in recent times anyway) at an outdoor service followed by parish family barbecue. It was a great success, with well over 125 people attending on what was a lovely, warm, dry afternoon. Worshipping outside, followed by social fellowship, was a very apt way to mark the end of what has been a fabulous summer and to start looking forward to autumn. Particular thanks go to Lynn and Frank Gunning and their crew who looked after all the cooking, and also to everybody who contributed “tray bakes” for the “afters”. We’re determined to make this an annual event – on the first Sunday after the schools go back.
