Let’s Give St Pauls Church a Big Hug!

Picnic at St Paul’s Church, Whiteshill
Saturday 22nd July 2:30-4:30

Saturday 22nd July is going to be a BIG day for the Parish Church in Whiteshill. This family event is an opportunity to show our appreciation for the church which has not had it easy for a while.

Just as the new guttering went up on the north side and the metal fencing was removed, the recent storm caused water damage inside the building. St Paul’s definitely needs our support and a big hug.

So come along with your picnic and enjoy the various activities planned for the afternoon which include:

Face Painting

Sun Printing (UV printing on light-sensitive paper)

Quiz Trail for all the family

Younger Children’s Activity Table plus a chance to be creative with cupcakes.

There will be a photographic exhibition in the church of village photographs dating from the early 1900’s and Annie Blick, a talented local photographer is exhibiting her pictures of St Paul’s including some taken by drone.

There will also be paintings by children from Whiteshill School displayed in the church, together with a colourful string of flags drawn by the younger children from Playgroup. For musical entertainment, both village choirs will be singing and musicians will be playing throughout the afternoon.

The highlight of the event will be at 3.00pm when the church bell will sound and everyone will be asked to make a circle around the church. We will need a lot of people to complete the ring but it would be fantastic if we could achieve that.

Communion during this time

In these unprecedented times, we are working hard to find imaginative solutions in a landscape that has been rapidly changing. Sometimes we get things right, and sometimes we miss the mark. I apologise that this has been the case regarding communion.

For those of you who have received wafers in a parcel, we would ask that you either consume them, or put them somewhere safe to bring back once we are able to be together again.

We are going to be sending out a new order of service for use during this time as either a simple service of the word or, on occasion, to help us to share an Agape meal together.
