Parish churches in Ampfield, Chilworth & North Baddesley

On Friday 30th October
Dear [subscriber:firstname | default:reader]

It's first Sunday of the month this Sunday which means Worship For All online and an in-person service at St Mark's for those who have booked. For Worship For All you will, once again, need a couple of pieces of paper, a pair of scissors and a pen and the service will be available on YouTube ( and from the front page of the benefice website. Please note that there is no 'Communion to go' this Sunday (1st Nov) nor on Sunday 8th Nov.

The churchyard Remembrance trail is open from now to the 12th November. Further details below and this week's picture is of the pine cones in the cross ready for people to take one as part of the reflection.

And, in case you missed it in last week's rather full email, I have again included a link below to the Daily Encouragement post with information about websites, books and apps that various members of the congregation find encouraging and have suggested.

There will be Compline with visual reflections online again on Tuesday evening.
