Latest News from Flitton
Most of you will have heard this by now, sadly for us, [but great news for him], our curate, Rev Ian will be leaving us in the New Year to take up a position in Renhold. We wish him and Christine well in their new home and parish. We will miss them but we will carry on with a full range of services next year. Ian's last service will be on Sunday December 29th when we will have a 3 churches service at Silsoe starting at 10am.
Have you ever thought of helping us at Flitton church by joining the PCC? This is the Parochial Church Council which basically runs the church. We are always in need of anyone who has skills in finance, technology, fund raising, safeguarding and all the things that need to be done. By spreading the workload, it make things less onerous so do please think about it and let me know if you would like to be involved in some way. We meet 6 or 7 times a year. It is so important to keep our church flourishing and serving the community for future generations but we cant do it without help.
Harvest Festival and Supper. Harvest Festival was lovely. We had children from Greenfield Academy leading us in singing Cauliflowers Fluffy- a real treat. The church looked beautiful and manty thanks to everyone who helped and/or provided all the items. The Food Bank collection was good too. The Harvest Supper was a great success. For the first time in years, we were back in the Church Hall and it was a terrific evening. We raised £2,280.50 towards the church, church hall and the Friends of the Church which is an amazing total. Thank you to everyone who helped in any way.
Community Songs of Praise. We are holding a Songs of Praise on Sunday November 3rd at 11am. We hope that lots of you will come and join in. We are asking people for their favourite hymns so do let me know. This will be followed by soup and bread in the church hall. So many people contribute to village life and it would be lovely for all of us to meet up and it is our way of saying thank you.
