Reports presented at the annual church meeting of St Mary’s Hemyock with Culm Davy Chapel showed them to be lively forward looking communities. The buildings including the Church Room are in good repair and the interior of St Mary’s is to be redecorated during the summer months. Architect plans for possible alterations at the church had been on display and following an open parish meeting Church Council will be considering the way forward.
Don't forget that as well as being the Queen's birthday, April 21st is also the day of the Annual Church Meeting for St Mary's. It takes place at 7.45pm and is the time to hear what has been going on in the various church groups over the past year. If you don't know what church groups there are then it's a good chance to find out. For those on the electoral roll there's also voting to be done for Church Council members, and this year Deanery Synod members too.
We now stand on the threshold of spring, the season of renewal. I'm sure that all of us will enjoy the longer days, the opportunity to get back outside and nurture our gardens back to new life. Not that they need our help, they are quite capable of doing it all on their own! But, we have our own ideas about how they should look and will hack, prod, dig, mow and generally bully them into submission - because we are the ones in control and want it done our way.
Villagers in Hemyock are being invited to a meeting at 10.30am on Saturday 8th March at the Parish Church to hear about possible alterations within the building that are being considered by St Mary's Parochial Church Council.
A number of suggestions have been put forward and these plans are on display at the back of the church along with an explanatory leaflet.
On Wednesday December 5, members of St Mary’s Guild met for their monthly meeting in the Church Rooms.
Christine Brown welcomed members before introducing speakers Malcolm and Mary Beal who entertained us with some tales and anecdotes about their life since Malcolm's ordination in the 1960s. Malcolm started his ministry in Keynsham before moving on to Speak in Liverpool. After which he and Mary with two little boys, David and Andrew found themselves moving again - to Uganda. Whilst living in Uganda Sarah was born.
Christmas is over and a New Year begins, A New Year full of opportunity and expectation which has been rather blunted by various bodies warning of an impending credit squeeze and a fall in the economy. All of us face rising energy charges, from fuel for our cars to the electricity that powers our homes. In addition, there are the hidden charges that will be added to the price of goods in our shops and will eventually find their way into our wallets and purses.
