It has been a quiet autumn in the parish. The toadstools have had a wonderful season, and the Harvest Festival was quiet, but productive. A huge thank you to those who brought produce for the Foodbank, both to the service itself, and left in the porch.
As Christmas approaches we are planning the Carol Service for 11am on 20th December, in much the same way as usual, with the building of the Christmas Crib, and angels from the tree. We aren’t allowed to serve teas and coffees, but there will be angel biscuits individually wrapped, as well as orange or apple juice in cartons for you to take away. As I write we are again not allowed to have a proper service, but hopefully that will change before Christmas.
Sadly the Frenze Carols by Candlelight will NOT be possible this year as the church is simply too small to maintain a social distance.
However, the Private Prayer on Wednesday is able to continue, so Thelveton church will be open and prayer cards will be available if you would like to use them.
The Waveney Foodbank was grateful for your Harvest contributions. They now have an appeal for Christmas. On Wednesdays a box will be placed in church, and you are invited to leave –
Tinned Vegetables, Corned Beef, Tinned Ham, Tinned Tomatoes, Sweets for children, Microwave Puddings
I will collect them when I lock up. Alternatively all the major supermarkets have collecting points and the Foodbank van picks up from there regularly.
May God Bless you all this Christmas and in 2021.
