Heroes All memorial bookRemembrance Sunday 2018

This was particularly special this year because of the centenary of the end of the First World War. We were pleased to receive the book 'Heroes All' presented to us by Eric Chown at Creech St Michael. It contained his research into those who are remembered on our war memorial in the churchyard. We have placed it in the church for anyone to view if they would like to.

At Ruishton we were very impressed by the wonderful cross of poppies made by In Stitches @ St George’s! It must have taken hours to make all those poppies!

We were also pleased to receive two Perspex figures from the “There but not There” project from the charity “Remembered” which seeks to support those injured in war. They were donated for Remembrance weekend, and were a haunting reminder of those from our communities who are no longer with us because of war. They were in place at Creech and Ruishton churches for the weekend.

BENEFICE CHILDREN’S, SCHOOLS AND FAMILIES WORKER - An update

Many of you will have read in previous months that we have decided to go ahead and appoint a new person to work part-time with our schools and families and provide a link between our schools and churches. We received a generous legacy and some gift aided donations at our appeal in September. In October we applied for a grant from the Bath & Wells Fund for Church Growth for £10,000. We are currently awaiting the result of this and expect to hear by the end of November. If this is awarded, then we shall be in a strong position to start advertising the post in the New Year. More details will be available in January. Please pray for this new venture, that the funds will be available and that we may be able to appoint God’s choice for this role.
