Calling all potential campanologists!

Mark Rowland from Wray has kindly agreed to lead & train potential bell-ringers at the Church .

The sessions have now started and for the first few weeks will be held on a Thursday evening at St. Margaret's Church in Hornby, as the bells there are lighter & easier to pull than the bells at St. James the Less.

If you have been quietly nursing a desire to learn about bell-ringing, now is your opportunity!

If you are interested please contact: Linda Kirkby at lindakirkby@aol.com

                                                or Margaret Whatmough at maggie.whatmough@gmail.com or on 07796 661891

CHURCH LIFE IN FLOWERS - 21st to 24th June 2018

A special Midsummer Celebration with flowers will take place at the Church.

This will begin with a Wenning Voices Open evening on Thursday 21st June and will end on Sunday 24th June.

The church will be decorated with flowers depicting the various activities which take place in it over the year – ordinary and special services, weddings, baptisms, Wenning Voices, concerts and other social events, upholstery classes, farming linked services, Tatham History Society events, film nights planned and creative arts classes planned.

This is not a fundraising event - it is simply a celebration of the church at the heart of its community and it will be lovely to see it dressed in its best for this midsummer weekend.

The church will be open as usual for visitors every day on Friday, Saturday and Sunday 22nd to 24th June from 9am to 6pm and there will be a Special Church Service on Sunday 24th June at 11am which will include the Wenning Voices, with sparkling wine, soft drinks, tea and coffee after the service.  

We hope that many people from the community will come to see the flower displays in the church and take part in the Thursday Open Evening and the Sunday service.

Here is a summary of the event across the four days:

Thursday 21st June 7.30pm  – Wenning Voices Open Evening. Visitors very welcome. Jacobs Join supper.

Friday, Saturday and Sunday, 22nd – 24th June – Church open every day from 9am to 6pm. Free entry but donations will be very welcome.

Sunday 24th June at 11am – Special Midsummer Service including Wenning Voices, followed by wine, soft drinks, coffee & tea.

We hope that you will be able to join us at some stage of this event - you can be assured of a warm welcome.
