Rector’s Weekly Update

The Beaminster Area Team
From the Hub update Friday 24th November 2022

Just a couple of reminders to begin with.

This Sunday 27th November we are holding the Team Advent Carol Service at St Mary’s Netherbury starting at 6pm. This is a wonderfully atmospheric service which will be led by The Beaminster Church Choir under the direction of Dr Peter Nardone and accompanied by Peter Aves. We would love to see you join us.

Monday 28th at 2pm, is the funeral of our late Team Partner Priest Rev Elfrida Savigear in St Mary’s Beaminster. I hope that many will join her family in giving thanks for her life. The service is being live streamed and you can view it the following address:

Thank you to everyone who attended last Saturday’s Quiet Day, especially to Dr David Campbell for his outstanding talks on Watching and Waiting for Advent and to Jacky Bush for all of her help in organising the day and providing four different soups and homemade breads. Thanks also to Peter Aves for manning the sink and dishwasher.

Saturday 3rd December at the Comrades Hall in Broadwindsor is their hugely popular @Three Churches Coffee Morning. There will be the usual Cake, Tombola, Bric-a-brac, books and Christmas stalls. The fun begins at 10.15 am and runs until 12.15pm. Come along and bring a friend. Admission is £2.00 which includes coffee/tea and mince pies. 

Please note the dates for Advent Sunday and Elfrida’s funeral are wrong in the Pew News below, the correct dates are in the text above.
