Christingle Service and Lighting of the Christmas Tree
Our second Christingle Service was very successful and £76.90 was raised for The Children’s Society. This was followed by seasonal refreshments and the lighting of the Christmas Tree in the churchyard. It was good to see so many people attend.
Children’s Nativity and Candlelight Carol Service
A lovely Children’s Nativity was held in church on Saturday, 15th December and the following day there was a full church for our Candlelit Nine lessons and Carols Service. A retiring collection was held for the replacement church roof fund and £197.95 was raised.
Church Roof Update
As you know, the lead from our church roof was stolen in mid November and we now have a temporary covering of plastic sheeting to prevent rain damage inside the church and to protect our medieval wall paintings. This is being monitored regularly especially after heavy rain/wind. A roof alarm is being installed next month – this will be undertaken in two stages. The first to protect the remaining lead on the roof and the second stage will take place to cover the whole roof when it is replaced. We will be applying for grants to help us pay for the replacement roof but we will also have to raise funds ourselves. If you would like to donate to our roof fund, the bank details are as follows : cheques to be made payable to St. Pega’s Church, or by BACS : Barclays Sort Code 29-97-34 and Account Number is 90704628. Thank you.
