Christmas 2018

Christmas began with the lighting of the Advent Wreath. It was busy in church, with three school services, a Christmas Memorial Service, Crib and Carol Service and Traditional Carol Service, as well as the usual midnight and Christmas Day services. In all, 2400 attended during the Christmas period.

The pictures at the bottom are of the congregation at the Toy Service and the congregation, from the back of St Peter’s, during the Crib and Carol Service.

Bengeworth Remembers

The There But Not There silhouettes had been in place for just a week when members of the local community met for a Talk and Tea event. Judith Smart gave a talk about the process of investigating the men named on the war memorial in the Holy Trinity chapel. We learned about some of them and there was a lot of conversation over tea and looking at items on display.

Some pupils from St. Richard’s First School visited on 9th November to look at and talk about the silhouettes. Children from Bengeworth Academy will visit in the coming week.

The silhouettes were in place for our Armistice Anniversary Remembrance Service and will be there for the Bengeworth Remembrance Service next week.

The two silhouettes in the church garden seem to be growing ‘flowers that will not fade’. The silhouettes will remain in place until the end of November.
