All the services are of course subject to any government regulations and the continuing restrictions on what we can do, as well as the health/availability of the clergy. At the moment this is what we are planning for Tockenham in July:
Sunday 11 July Communion at 10.30am
There will be plenty of other services around the benefice, and details have already been sent round on the village email. See also the previous page in this magazine. To keep up to date with service times etc please sign up to the benefice mailing list by contacting Elaine Leighton on firstname.lastname@example.org
Although we haven't been able to use the church as fully as we would have liked, we are still working hard to maintain the building and churchyard. New light bulbs have been installed to replace the old ones that kept failing, and we hope the better lighting will be welcoming and helpful.
As you know we can't have the summer fair this year, but look out for the various fundraising and social activities to suuport the church and the village, and to enable us to be together again. Thank you to all of you who supported the Children's Society event and now we look forward to:
Saturday 14th August
Cream Tea afternoon/raffle.
All proceeds to the church.
More details to follow.
It is also hoped we can have a picnic to follow our patronal festival on 29th August - more details later.
The church is still being opened on Wednesdays for private prayer and to receive donations for the Swindon Food Collective.
