We have installed a lovely new double oven in St Disen’s Hall. No more burnt pizzas!! It will be used for the first time for our Spring Lunch on February 26th. Add your name to the list in church if you would like to join us — £7.00 per head, 12 noon, after the 11am service.
On Sunday, 15th January we held a special collection for theBradninch Refugee Support Group. As a result of this, the team were able to purchase £150.00 worth of nappies, soap and other toiletries to be sent to RAFT. Thank you so much to all who donated.
Collections of food and toiletries continue on March 4th from 10.00am to 12 noon at St Disen’s Hall.
Congratulations to Justine and Christopher who celebrated 21 years of marriage by coming together with family and friends at St Disen’s Church on 10th December to renew their marriage vows.
Advent, the season of the church’s year when we prepare to celebrate the birth of Christ, begins with the lighting of the first candle on the Advent Wreath.
Our lay-led service took as its theme the need for everyone to ‘stay awake’ and be ready to welcome Christ when he comes.
Following the service, almost fifty people enjoyed a fabulous three-course meal in St Disen’s Hall.
Following the Act of Remembrance at the Guildhall, we welcomed almost 200 people, including the Mayor and members of the Town Council, to our Remembrance Service. The service was conducted by Revd. Keith Gale, who took as his text ‘Blessed are the Peacemakers’.
Standards were presented by Scouts, Cubs and Beavers.
St Disen’s church is (finally) putting together a website. Let’s hope it will be a great resource.
