Celebrating Harvest

The church was beautifully decorated—a huge thank you to the Flower Team for all their hard work. We had wonderful service it was good to welcome so many with splendid homemade cakes and drinks!

The gifts of fresh produce were given to Gloucester House and the groceries were given to Swindon Food Bank. Our plate collection is going to Tear Fund (find out more on the Tear Fund website) and we were pleased to send a donation of £200.

The School Harvest Service was excellent and it was such a joy to be able to share this with them in our church. It was the first time we used our new microphones and it made a huge difference.

When you are thinking about Christmas gifts don’t forget that South Marston Church Tea towels are still for sale £3.50 or 2 for £6, 4 for £10—contact Vicky Fleming .

The Annual Meeting.

Donald Page and Richard Sansum were elected as Church Wardens once more. William Hiscocks is Treasurer and Tina Hiscocks is PCC Secretary. We are very grateful for their commitment to continue in office. Also elected as PCC members are Diane Gambles and Shirley Wildern. Diane is also our Deanery Synod Representative. Our vision continues to be helping people to explore faith, serving the community through our links with the school, Meeting Point and sharing the joys and difficulties of life when called upon. We want to repair and renew the guttering and downpipes but raising the money for this necessary maintenance is proving very difficult — will you help us?
