Family and friends came together on a beautiful May Bank Holiday Sunday to celebrate the baptisms of Millie and her baby sister Meadow. The service included ‘Morning has Broken’ especially chosen by Millie and Meadow’s parents and a song, with plenty of actions, about how wide, high and deep God’s love is for us.
St Disen’s Church looked its best for the day too, set against a brilliant blue sky and blossom on the trees.
Our coffee morning last Saturday raised an amazing £477.00. A big thank you to all who supported and helped in any way. The morning was in aid of our Organ Restoration Fund and thanks to you, we are now well on the way to raising enough money to pay for the repairs to the organ, so that it can once more sound as it did when it was first built in the 19th century.
To celebrate Easter, St Disens is holding an Eggstravaganza on Saturday, 31st March from 2.00-4.00pm.
There will be games, crafts, food, history, music and an Egg Hunt at 3.00pm. And hopefully the tower will be open too. Great fun for everyone.
Come and chat with our new priest, Olly Mears over a pint of beer (or whatever your tipple is) in The Castle from 8.30pm onwards.
Please note that there will be no Tiddlywinks this Wednesday, 3rd January. It will start up again on Wednesday 17th January, 9.30am. And on Wednesday 24th January we will be hosting our usual coffee morning from 10.30am.
Adults and children alike enjoyed our crib service on Christmas Eve as the stable gradually filled with woolly figures as the Christmas Story unfolded.
We were delighted to officially welcome Revd Olly Mears last evening, 4th December, when he was licensed by the Bishop of Exeter to serve as Priest in Charge at St Disen’s here in Bradninch and also as Pioneer Minister for St Andrew’s in Cullompton. Representatives from the parishes, neighbouring churches and the County Council added their words of welcome. We look forward to working with Olly as we put into action words from the Bishop’s address to grow our church.
We also take this opportunity to thank the PCC and particularly the Churchwardens for all their hard work in keeping the life of the church going during the 18 month vacancy.
