We have some
Christmas cards of the church in last year’s snow for sale. They were taken by Chris Hunt and include a little picture
on the back of Pat Austin’s
“St. Bartholomew” with a snow ‘hat’ on!
They are in packs of 5 with envelopes.
Christmas Tree Festival
We are looking
forward to our Christmas Tree Festival on the weekend of 7th - 9th December and many local people and businesses will be taking
part. Do come and support us. £3 entry (Children free). There will be a Christmas Fayre on the
morning of Saturday 8th in church with stalls, refreshments, bulbs, tombola and Christmas cards. It
is also believed that Father Christmas will be putting in an appearance throughout the day, including
a children’s “Lucky Dip” in his grotto. On the Sunday Evening we end with our Carol
Service starting at 6.30 pm.
For those of you who
remember George and Joyce Frost, George has kindly agreed to come and lead the Christmas morning service this year. Joyce
will come too.
There is a Remembrance book in Tong Church. If anyone would like to have the name of a departed loved one, who
had a connection with Tong, entered into the book please contact Anne Sadler on 01902 374438.
