Benefice Newsletter – 25th December

Dear Congregation and Friends of St Mary Longcot,

Please find attached the Benefice Newsletter and associated documents for Christmas Day. 

Christmas Eve Mass.  Christmas Eve Mass tonight will be led by Norma and will begin at 11.30pm.  Our thanks also to Chris Gotch who has kindly agreed to act as sidesman for the service.

Last Sunday’s Village Carol Service.  The PCC would like to thank all those who attended last Sunday’s Carol Service and especially those who contributed to the celebration, including the bell ringers, the flower arrangers, the iPad operator, those who read lessons and lit the candles, and of course to Canon Paul for taking the service.  It was a wonderful event and with the bell ringers in the Mezzanine we were able to show off the new build to good effect.

A Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to everybody,

Dennis

Benefice Sunday Service.  Tomorrow is the fifth Sunday in the month, so there will be no service at St Mary. Instead there will be a Benefice Holy Communion service at St James, Bourton.   The service starts at 10am.

Forthcoming Funeral/Celebration of Life.

  • The funeral for Simon Dalton-Morris will be held at the Kingsdown Crematorium at noon on Monday 1st November.  Simon has been a stalwart member of the St Mary’s gardening team over many years and will be greatly missed.  Shirley has said that everybody is welcome to join the family at both the service and afterwards at Stanton Hotel, Stanton Fitzwarren, SN6 7SD.  Our thoughts and prayers are with Shirley and her family.
  • The family of Joan Turner have arranged for a celebration of Joan’s life to be held at St Mary’s Church, Longcot, at 12.30pm on Wednesday.  Joan and her late husband, Godfrey, were a mainstay of St John’s Church Fernham for many years.  Our thoughts and prayers are with her family.

The Torriano Ensemble

An opportunity to enjoy a live performance of Beethoven’s masterful Septet for clarinet,
horn, bassoon and strings in the beautiful surroundings of the newly converted church.
The performance will be preceded by a brief talk with musical illustrations. The Torriano
Ensemble are a group of professional musicians who have been playing together for many
years and specialise in performing some of the lesser-known pieces for clarinet and string quartet alongside the great classics of the genre.
