I’ve been asked to let everyone know about the services and news as not everyone gets the Marshland Messenger or has chance to see the service times on the church notice board.
Since the retirement and sad passing on of the Revd. Ken, the Diocese has done some further fantastic work in trying to find someone to take on the Marshlands post. The result is that someone is showing great interest in the Marshlands.
There is a service at 2pm at Eastoft on Sunday the 6th (this Sunday) and then afterwards there will be a chance to discuss the post and the potential candidate in anticipation of an interview on Monday the 14th.
We would be delighted to see as many people at church on Sunday and for the meeting afterwards so that the needs of Eastoft can be thoroughly considered.
December is such a special time in the Church calendar and we hope that the Marshlands Parish can offer you all an opportunity to share in worship at some point.
There will be a Carol service at Eastoft on Sunday the 13th December at 6.30pm, where there will be Carols and Christmas readings…There might even be a mince pie and a cup of tea afterwards!
There will also be a Christmas Communion service on the 20th at 11.00am.
The primary school are holding their Christingle service in church on Friday the 11th at 2.00pm
And of course the Parish Council have arranged once again for Carols Around the Tree on Wednesday the 16th at 7pm…I’m already praying that the weather is fine
There isn’t a service on Christmas Eve in Eastoft but the were is an all age service at 6.30pm at Adlingfleet.
The Christmas Day service is at Whitgift at 10.00am and as always this will be a very special service – a great antidote to TV and Turkey!
There are lots of other services at the Marshlands churches throughout December but there is no service on Sunday the 27th.
