Coffee Mornings

Thank you to all who supported our recent coffee mornings in aid of our organ fund and the Childrens Society which between them raised some £400. But coffee mornings aren’t all about making money. They’re about meeting and making friends over a cup of coffee (or tea). So why not come and join us at our next Coffee Morning on Wednesday 22nd August at 10.00am in the Church Hall.

Christian Aid

Many thanks to all who donated to our collection during Christian Aid Week and especial thanks to those who collected ‘door to door’.

As a result, we have been able to contribute £1,035 to help some of the poorest people in the world.

A new name to the list

Revd. Olly Mears’ name has been added to the generations-long list of incumbents at St. Disens.

 

……. and the notice board has been up-dated, too!

 

Songs of Praise on 10th June

Come and join with the Gospel Hall, Baptist Church and St Disen’s Church as they get together for a joyful session of hymn singing outside the Guildhall on Sunday 10th June at 10.30am.

Commonwealth War Graves Commission Plaque

The Commonwealth War Graves Commission has put up a sign at the entrance to St Disen’s Churchyard as part of its First World War centenary project to increase awareness of war graves throughout the United Kingdom.  There are 8 war graves in St Disen’s Churchyard and another at the Baptist Church.

Although there are 8 war graves in the churchyard, there are only 7 grave sites as brothers, Private S. Elliot and Sapper V. Elliot are commemorated together.

 

 

Baptisms of Millie and Meadow

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.

A lovely church on a lovely day
