Latest News from Flitton

As ever, we have been very busy at Flitton church in October and November. We had a lovely Songs of Praise service followed by soup and bread. Then we had the Glenn Miller evening which had sold out by the end of August. Sadly, the speaker had to drop out at the last minute because his wife had to be rushed to hospital so we had a really good social hour in the church hall before moving over to the church for The Ampthill Town Band. They were excellent and we raised a good amount for the church and forces charities. Thank you to all those who came.
 
Remembrance Sunday.  It was great to see children from Greenfield School who laid wreaths that each class had made. The British Legion came too so it is always a special service.
 
At the end of this year, we say a sad farewell to Rev Ian who has been with is for 2 and a half years. We will miss his joyful approach to services and we wish Christine and him well. They are moving to Renhold so not so far away, and Ian will pop back occasionally to do baptisms. We are fortunate that we can carry on with all our services across the benefice. We thank  Rev Anne Barker, Rev  Julie Cox and  Rev Roger Wood who will be taking Holy Communion services and Reader  Gillian Kern will continue to help us with Morning Worship. During a vacancy, it is often difficult to find clergy to take services so we are incredibly lucky to have so much help.
 
Is there anyone who could help to deliver our parish magazine Flit n More?  This comes out 4 times a year and we are looking for people to deliver them either every time or on an occasional basis if someone is on holiday. Do think about it and let me know. The more people who can do this, the fewer houses each person has to deliver to. Volunteering is a great way to do something to help the village.
 
Coffee Morning  Saturday November 23rd. This is organised by The Friends of the Church 10.30-12.30 for cakes, coffee and stalls. Do come and support us.
 
Date for your diary. Soup and dessert lunch 12-2pm Saturday January 25th 2020. After the success of the soup after Songs of Praise, we thought we would extend this into a sociable lunchtime occasion. £5 per person. 
 
 Prayer List  If you would like to be mentioned in our regular prayers at church services either for yourself or someone you know, please contact Margaret or Jo, our churchwardens.
