Would you like to help to look after our beautiful church?

There are several regular jobs which village people volunteer to do, for example, dusting the pews. As well as the satisfaction of making the building clean and welcoming for all who use it, I find that time spent on these jobs can provide an opportunity for some quiet time in lovely surroundings. Cleaning can be seen as a mundane occupation but the end result can be satisfying and pleasure taken from a job well done. Church cleaning can provide a time for peaceful reflection and prayer while working in the empty building. It is also a pleasure to meet others from the village and visitors from further afield who come in while you are working.

For centuries our church must have been cared for by all sorts of people and we now have the chance to take our turn to cherish this beautiful place for ourselves and our village community in “this our generation” and for those yet to come within its walls. If you would like to join in this care or would like to ask any questions about it, please talk to the churchwardens or myself.  The list of jobs on the rota each month is up in church, please sign up for the jobs you would like to do.
