War Memorial

Work has begun on raking out and repointing the brick base. Thank you to Barry Winn, Chris Kemp and Mac McGuinness for their hard work - it's already looking much improved.

Evensong 11th September

We were delighted to welcome back Kevin Bryant and the St Mary's Tenbury Choir whose vocal input was much appreciated. Thanks as always to Jinny our faithful organist for accompanying us. I am sure Jinny you know how much we appreciate having you. Thank you. Afterwards everyone stayed to enjoy a chat, glass of wine and nibbles.

Harvest Festival Service and Lunch

Just to remind you that this important annual event will take place on Sunday 9th October with the service at 11.30am followed by lunch. Offers of food please to Kath Bills (01299 270367). We would be grateful for your usual generous support in decorating the church, and also supplying canned and dried goods and fresh produce.

General Notice

I have been asked by a number of village residents to draw your attention to the increase in dog fouling in and around the village and in the churchyard. This is particularly unpleasant for those who wish to keep the verge outside their property tidy. Could I please ask you to take home any bags of dog waste rather than leaving them in the church wheelie bins which are not collected on a regular basis. Thank you in advance for your help.

Prayer for Harvest

Almighty and everlasting God, we offer you our hearty thanks for your Fatherly goodness and care in giving us the fruits of the earth in their season. Give us grace to use them rightly to your glory, for our own wellbeing and for the relief of those in need. Through Jesus Christ our Lord.
