Scenes of Somersham Calendar for 2018 – these cost £5 and are now available to purchase from Eddie Howlett or on eBay.  Only 100 calendars have been printed, so make sure that you don’t miss out!

Christmas Quiz  John Sissons has produced a quiz about sweets and the winner will be announced in mid December. Quiz Sheets are now available to purchase from John or Jean Draper and cost £1.

Christmas Tree Festival – advance notice  Planning for this is underway and the event will take place on Saturday and Sunday 25th & 26th November in the Church. Help will be required with stewarding and refreshments and rotas will be available later in the month for volunteers to sign up. As we did last year we will have two Christmas hampers for the raffle and there will be a list at the back of the church of items that need to be donated in order to fill them.

Voices of Old Hurst  This inclusive community group will meet on Monday 6th and 20th for an hour from 7.30pm in St Peter’s for everyone who likes to sing.

Sunday Sing and Praise   “Sunday Sing and Praise” embraces a style of worship unlike any other in our benefice, appealing to those enjoying an informal and slightly unconventional approach to short punchy lay-led services with cake and coffee available throughout.  After July’s successful service it has been decided to continue trialling this for at least the next six months every 3rd Sunday at 10.30am.
