Our thanks to Ticknall Choir for their welcome contribution to our Carol Service at what must be a specially busy time for them.
This year Hazel encouraged the children of the parish to form christmas choir. We were delighted to hear them sing at the Christingle Service and the Carol Service and to welcome the families who came to support them.
Thank you, Hazel, and thank you, children, for all your hard work. We look forward to seeing you again.
Bishop Alastair will be making a series of Lent Addresses this year
1 On Sunday evenings at St Edmund's Allestree - 'Growing in God's Grace'
2 On Monday evenings at All Saint's Sawley - 'Being Human
All Welcome. Details on the notice board
Also on the notice board is a copy of the Bishop's letter Epiphany 2013 in which he sets out various areas of concern for the parishes to consider.
' I invite each parish to consider what if means in practice to be part of the body of Christ?' seems to sum up all the rest.
