Sunday 30th August

Dear all

We hope you are all keeping well and safe.. and surviving the storms, rain and winds this week - well it is a bank holiday weekend!

There is no video recorded service this week with it being a Bank holiday weekend, but Nigel and I hope to issue a link to an audio recording later this evening (but without hymns).  We expect to return to recorded services the following week.

Our Sunday Services this week:

  • Quintet ZOOM UPPER ROOM service at 9am when we shall be looking at the future of the church as we move forward. It promises to be good with two speakers; Chris Nixon from Silsoe Church and Rebecca Caird who is the Family and Mission Outreach worker in the Quintet.
    Everyone is welcome in the Upper Room. You can just sit and listen. So do invite your friends, from near and far, to share some music, scripture reflection and prayer in a safe space. 9am this Sunday (please ask for details)

(with social distancing measures in place). More information from Dee.

Harlington Church and the village have welcomed the return of the church bells this week. There have been so many happy comments from the village community noting their familiar return.. they are a landmark sound.  Thank you so much to everyone who has supported the donation appeal and for your generosity. 

Chalgrave Church PCC meeting Wednesday eve.

Beware of email scam

There are reports around the country of a growing number of cases of emails impersonating clergy being sent to request a variety of things including purchase of gift cards and vouchers.  Please note that we will never ask you by email to spend your own money for the church.  In many cases the sender's email is: churchonline948@gmail.com. (This has been reported to the government phishing address). Please be careful. 

With best wishes

Linda and Nigel
