Parish Jottings - September / October 2020

Knit & Stitch Group reconvenes

Following the easing of Lockdown restrictions, the church Knit & Stitch Group has started to meet again. To date, Mary Burton and Rosemary Woodroffe have held meetings in their gardens. During the meetings, social-distancing precautions have been in place, as the risk of contracting the Covid-19 virus infection still exists. Tea is available on a ‘bring your own cup’ basis. The meetings will continue whilst the weather is suitable.

Home Grown Preachers

It is pleasing to note that several children of members of our church have been involved in church services. David Hails, son of Mike and Pam Hails, preached in Neath Abbey. Debbie Smith, daughter of John and Jean Smith, has taken a service in her church in Birmingham. Peter Woodroffe, son of Brian and Rosemary Woodroffe, has preached in his church. All the above sibling preachers used to attend Holy Trinity church here in Henley before they moved away from Henley.
