1.2.19. From the Parish Clerk

Following a meeting with Highways, it was reported that there will be two separate road closures in the 2019-20 financial year, one to complete laying of a new drain between Poor House Lane and Ridge Lane ( now completed as at 13.5.19.) and the other to re-surface Wheatsheaf Hill. Dates are unknown, but will be published as they become available.

Village Notice Board

From the Revd Rose:

During the summer months there will be a new pattern of services to help with covering holidays but also to have the opportunity to worship in a slightly different way.
Each week, except for the normal Together at 10 Services, there will be four services across the benefice, offering a range of styles of worship – from traditional BCP to the more modern Common Worship, as well as All Age Services and some Informal ones.  Each Sunday there will be at least one communion service in the benefice. The details of the services will be posted in the Church Porch at the end of each “previous” week.

We hope everyone will feel free to choose the type of service they prefer, and move around the churches, meeting and making new friends, and enjoying the different atmospheres of each of our churches.

17 June at 7.30 pm, Digby Memorial Church Hall, Sherborne, Insight Lectures: “Fortress Britain”

As the UK carves out a new place for itself on the European and world stage Ben Ryan, Head of Research at the Theos Think Tank and editor of the book Fortress Britain, will explore the ethical bases for immigration and refugee policies. How do we discern between migrants and refugees? And what difference should that make to our welcome? Who, in fact, is our neighbour?
