Sunday 27 December: a simple Sunday service of Christmas reflections at each church (9.30 at St James’, 11.00 at St Michael’s and 3.30 at St Gabriel’s). The weekly on-line service was released a few days early to cover both Christmas and the Sunday after Christmas.

Wednesday 30 December: Deborah Mullins’ coffin will depart from St Michael’s at about 10.10 and will pass St James’ at about 10.20 on the way to her burial; Communion is then being celebrated in St James’ at 10.30 as usual. Some people might like to access www.justgiving.com/deborahmullins.

Sunday 3 January: celebrations of Communion (with dedication at the New Year) at each church (9.30 at St James’, 11.00 at St Michael’s and 3.30 at St Gabriel’s). A fresh on-line service will be released.

We are sorry to learn of the death of Joan Robinson, a long standing resident of Stanbury and member of St Gabriel’s, and pray for her family.
