#409: catch your bin lid as it blows past you

Hello! Bertie here, still buzzing from the New Year’s Eve fireworks I saw on the tele. They were epic, although I couldn’t keep up with all of the changes in the soundtrack. I felt quite dizzy about that. So new year, new cheese cellar to open up and relish. I can’t wait to see what lies behind the wax seal under the church. I feel just like Indiana Jones, only with a better waistcoat. Anyway, here is the news…


This Sunday we are keeping the feast of the Epiphany, when we remember the arrival of the Magi at the manger. Services at 9.30 (all-together), 10 and 11- and the 9.30 and 10 are available online, as usual. It will be great to have John Edwards preaching at St Paul’s and then taking the service at St Nick’s, which will allow Richard to take the service at Bearwood at 11. See you then!

The Parish Roast Lunch is on the 14th of January in the Rooms- it would be hugely helpful if you could book for it this weekend. We are keen to make sure that everyone who would like to come is able to and made welcome- if the price of the lunch is in way an issue, please have a quiet word with Richard who will give you a ticket or a discount.
