The latest church magazine is now available here on the web site and in printed form at the church. As usual at this time of year it is a combined edition for December and January – there is normally not much news to report at the end of the year. The relevant individual pages of the web site will be updated shortly, nearer the end of November.
AS well as the repairs to the tower of the church, the kitchen and other facilities inside the church have been improved. As I was passing the church on the way from Specsavers to the bus stop, and the church was open, I went in to take a quick look at the palatial new toilet, and also (see below) to see some of the decorations that had been put up in the church for Remembrance Day, before they were taken down.
Our Patronal Festival will be in the evening of Tuesday 20th November:
Tuesday 20th November at 7pm
Celebrant: Fr Tom Atfield
Preacher: Fr John Oakes
Followed by refreshments
Please be at the church by 10:50am to allow time for the Act of Remembrance. Please also be aware that some roads in Dudley will be closed due to the procession to the War Memorial.
At last, the scaffolding has been removed from the tower, and in good time for St Edmund’s Day on 20, and Remembrance Sunday on 11th. Unfortunately it’s just too late to be included in this form in the 2019 calendar, which has now gone to the printers.
