On Sunday November 5th All Saints’ welcomed Rev Paul Thomas, the Archdeacon, to lead the worship at this service of thanksgiving. All donors and organisations who had generously given to the cause were invited to join in and celebrate. Due to their generosity and the hard work of members of the church and local community the bells are now safe and dry and the tower is prepared for future generations. As the Archdeacon recalled in his sermon the fundamental and metaphorical significance of a roof is immense. We warmly thank him for taking part in this special service.
The service was also a cause for celebrating Angela Price’s contribution to the church over the past 50 years. As a mere dot of a girl Angela joined All Saint’s choir in the 1960s and has been singing ever since! She was presented with flowers and gifts in recognition of her service and Emily Madge had made and decorated a delicious chocolate cake that was shared by all!
