Welcome

We extend a warm welcome to Mr and Mrs Graham Breeze who have recently moved into The Byre. We hope they will enjoy being part of Whitton.

2007 Calendars

We were pleasantly surprised to find that a quantity of 2007 calendars depicting the church and local scenes had been placed in the church with a note to suggest that we sell them at £2.50 each with all proceeds going to the restoration fund. We extend warmest thanks to the donor for this generous gesture. At the time of writing there are copies for sale in the church.

Christmas Cards

Once again we are selling Christmas Cards depicting the Burne-Jones/William Morris window. These can be collected from the church or ordered from Michael Holmes (890332). They are available blank or with a Christmas greeting at a cost of £5.00 per pack (10) £4.00 per pack for quantities of 5 packs, or £3.50 per pack for 10 packs or more.

Churchyard Hedges

Many thanks to David Rhoden for all the effort and time he has spent trimming the churchyard hedges inside and out - a good job well done!

Annual Service of Remembrance

This service with the laying of the poppy wreath will be held on Sunday 12th November at 6.30 pm. The collection will be for church funds with a retiring collection in aid of the Earl Haig Fund.

A Village Christmas

A fantastic opportunity to do all of your Christmas Shopping at the Whitton Village Christmas grand sale in the stunning country house setting of Whitton Paddocks, by kind invitation of Jane, Matthew and David Perks. A wide range of inspirational gifts and accessories for your home and garden. Unusual decorations, seasonal cakes, puddings and other food goodies. Many unusual and individual ideas you won't find on the High Street. Don't be disappointed, come early, enjoy a festive drink and soak up the wonderful atmosphere.

All Age Worship

Join us at WHITTON PADDOCKS for our service at 10 am on Sunday 19th November. If you or your children would like to do a reading or prayer please let Michael know asap. Everyone is welcome - it is a short service and it is ALL AGE WORSHIP.

Christmas Concert

Tickets are now available for our concert featuring the group Of One Accord to be held in the church on Friday 1st December at 7.30 pm. These are popular and talented entertainers so we are assured of a good evening, refreshments will be included and our usual free Christmas draw.
