Chalice Assistants at Whitbourne
If you would like to take a more activer part in Communion Services in this way, please speak to Rev'd Dawn Hyett or Sylvia Bland.

Building work inside Whitbourne Church

This has now finished, but the exact arrangement of pews, Nave Altar etc. will be in a state of flux for some time yet. Please be patient with us as we move towards making the best use of the space. Currently, Holy Communion is being received standing from the priest with the bread, and the wine from one or two chalice bearers. The organ has been removed and a temporary electronic one loaned to us.

The Grapevine

Please let Dawn or Doiran, our Ministers, know if you would like a visit, or even a phone call, or if you know somebody else who would. This could be, for example, because they are ill or recuperating, if their problems are getting the better of them and they need a friendly word, or if they are recently bereaved. Rev’d. Dawn Hyett: 01885 483747 Rev’d. Doiran Williams: 01886 821189

Friendship Lunches

**We started regular lunches at the Live and Let Live in Whitbourne, on the third Wednesday of the month from 12-2, on 18th April. This next one is on 15th August. As before, the bar will open at 12 and lunch will be served from 12.30. A choice of main courses (Pressed ham hock, roasted new potatoes, carrots, parsley sauce OR Smoked haddock, & chive risotto with poached egg) for £6, pudding (Strawberry pavlova OR Chocolate ice cream with chocolate sauce) for £2 extra, complimentary tea or coffee.

** From September, another regular Friendship Lunch is starting up at the Sapey Golf Club on the SECOND Wednesday of each month. Same arrangements as the Whitbourne lunch. Menu details to follow. Prices the same (£6 main course, plus £2 for pud if required).

Change to regular service times at Upper Sapey
