September is a changing point in the year. Most of the visitors have returned home. Schools and colleges are greeting their new students. Little ones are starting school for the first time. The grain harvest will be coming to a close and combine harvesters tucked away for another year.
This has been a busy summer for the Coastal Group. There have been coffee mornings, cake stalls, garden parties, mini and major fetes and lots more.
Most of these events have been organised by a relatively small number of committed people who work throughout the year to keep our nine churches open. Medieval churches are not easy to maintain and cost a lot of money.
If you value having an open church in your parish even if you do not attend services your support will be appreciated. Buy a jar of jam or cake, have a cup of coffee and meet your neighbours at a coffee morning.
We have seen several weddings and funerals at our churches during the last few months, so we know they are appreciated for these occasions. We hope to see you soon.
All creatures of our God and King, lift up your voice and with us sing.
