News from Braishfield October 2021Written by Carole Cox
How great it is to see our congregation back in church since our re-opening on 25th July. It is also wonderful to give a warm welcome to Annabel to our congregation. It is so good to have you with us.
Unfortunately, we still have some of our congregation, family members, and friends, who are not too well. Some are recovering from operations and some are receiving treatment. Also, some are having tests for various things and some are waiting for results. We send our love and best wishes to everyone feeling a bit under the weather at the moment.
Our Minister will have dedicated our new table and chairs, (which were given in memory of the late Alice and Andy Jack), for use in our church on 26th September. I hope to report on that service in the next magazine.
Our church was beautifully decorated for our Harvest Festival service, led by David Childs, on 19th September. It went well and our sincere thanks to go to everyone who was involved in any way with decorating the church. It looked lovely once again.
All of the food items brought to the Harvest Gift Service, together with any food items used to decorate the church, have been taken to the Food Bank in Romsey. Unfortunately, we were not able to have a Harvest Supper again this year. Let’s hope we will be able to do so in 2022!
We will be having a Church Meeting on 5th October at 7.30 pm in the church. We invite all members of our congregation, and anyone interested in our church, to come to this. Please come if you can and support the church here in Braishfield.
Last but not least, there are two important and lovely dates I need to tell you about. Our congratulations and best wishes go to:-
Kath who will celebrate her 90th birthday on 24th October.
Margery and Bill who will celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary on 30th October.
