Ringing for Notre Dame

Ringing for Notre Dame

The Archbishops of Canterbury and York and Prime Minister Teresa May have asked for bells at churches and cathedrals across the UK to ring out in solidarity when possible this Thursday 18 April (Maundy Thursday).  This request has been endorsed by the Central Council of Church Bell Ringers (CCCBR). 

Following the devastating fire at the Notre Dame cathedral in Paris, I would ask that our churches join the call for bells to ring out this Thursday offering solidarity and support to the people of France.

We all saw the overwhelming pictures of people in tears, in stunned silence, gazing incredulously across the Seine at the massive and majestic Notre Dame Cathedral engulfed in flames.  The fire has wreaked devastating damage, although the structure has been saved, along with the Grand Organ, the Rose Window, the great cross at the high altar, and at least some of the works of art.

Parish Giving Scheme

30 December 2018

Unknown26Both The Holy Innocents' Church Gt Barton and St Peter's Church Thurston have joined The Parish Giving Scheme (PGS). Each year it costs more to ensure that our Churches can remain open to everyone, when needed. In order to do this with declining congregations, we hope you will consider joining the PGS and give a regular amount to support your Church. If you would like more information on how you can join this scheme please contact our Parish Giving Scheme co-ordinator at: beneficepr@gmail.com or the PGS website: Parish Giving Scheme
