On November 25th we have our Big Christmas Sing at Abridge Village Hall, As well as the Variety Jazz Band we are revitalising the Jubilee choir who sang in June. Our rehearsals are at 7.30pm on Thursdays 3rd and 10th November at the Abridge Village Church. All are welcome whether you sang in June or not. It is a fun time not a serious choir- yet!?. And tickets are now on sale for the event. Please see attached poster. Come and bring your friends and family

Our next Zoom service is on Friday 4th November at 7.30pm. The Link is as above. If you have never been give it a try. It is simple to do because I can do it!

We will again be holding the Remembrance Day service at 10.50am at the Village Hall on Friday 11th . We will be joined by Lambourne School. And then at Stapleford Airfield we lay the wreath at 11.40am.

Remembrance Sunday is on November 13th starting at 10.30am where we welcome members of Abridge Village Church and thank Sheila for playing the organ.

Our next PCC is in the Vicarage on Monday 14th November from 7.00pm.

November 20th is the last Sunday of the Church’s year when we celebrate Christ the King. Our service is at 11.15am.

It is also the Sunday of Stapleford Abbotts Christmas Market from 10-2.00pm in Stapleford Abbotts Village Hall. It is worth going for the soup alone

Then, with Advent Sunday on 27th we move into Christmas mode. The Christmas tree will arrive on 25th and the church will need decorating. At 4.00pm on that Sunday the lights go on in Abridge and again we are invited to join the band and sing carols.

Details for the Christmas period will feature in the next edition but we will be looking for help.

On November 25th we have our Big Christmas Sing at Abridge Village Hall, As well as the Variety Jazz Band we are revitalising the Jubilee choir who sang in June. Our first get together is on Thursday 6th October at 7.30pm at the Abridge Village Church. All are welcome whether you sang in June or not.

The work on the spire is drawing to a close and we must thank the Rix family and friends for their skill and dedication in restoring what has proved a tricky historic task. The weather vane has also been repaired by the blacksmiths at Lambourne End Centre.

We are still looking for an auditor for last year’s books. He or she does not need formal qualifications.

The Church remains open; thanks to Ian and Marlene. It is good to feel that prayer is being offered at church over this period so do use the quiet of church and churchyard.

Stuff for the foodbank can be left in church or the Vicarage and it will be delivered to Collier Row each Friday.

You can continue to get your Traidcraft goods direct from Stapleford Abbotts Church. In addition there are the preserves and cards.

A reminder for those wanting to give through the Parish Giving Scheme the direct line is 0333 002 1271 and our reference is 080608032. Please remember the church as you navigate your way through our financial situation. Denise has more information
