New format for Westwell Family Service

St Mary, Westwell

St Mary, Westwell

Despite April-like showers, a goodly number attended our new-look Family Service on 7th August.

The new format included pictures on a big screen to accompany the story, lots of popular hymns, a well-known chorus accompanied by guitar and plenty of time to chat together afterwards over coffee. The general consensus was an enthusiastic “Yes” vote for the new format. We were particularly delighted to welcome Kirk and Louise Emmerich with their new baby Oscar Max.

Next Family Service will be on September 4th at 11 a.m. which will be the annual pet blessing service.  You will be very welcome to come with your pets large and small. Largest so far; a Pony!

Lets hope for warm, dry weather or, if not, some house-trained pets if case we have to withdraw inside the church!
