Paul Gismondi

Our curate, The Reverend Paul Gismondi will be ordained priest on the 25th June at 3 pm at St Luke's, Chelsea in London. It will be a great help to our group of parishes when he is a priest as he will be able to preside at services of Holy Communion and at weddings and baptisms.

Some of us will be going by train to London that morning and anyone else is welcome to join us. It would be nice to have a representation from our group to support  Paul at this important point in his ministry. However there is quite a lot of walking involved and a trip on the underground is required. But please do come if you think you can manage it. 

I would particularly ask that we all remember him in our prayers during the time leading up to his ordination and on the day itself.

Best wishes

Fund Raiser for St Peter's Church, Wolferton - Saturday 5th August 7 pm

On Saturday August 5th at 7p.m. there will be a roof restoration fund raising evening at St Peter's Church, Wolferton. You are invited to take "an informative walk around the church" with Dr Ayla Lepine. Dr Lepine is a renowned sacred art and architectural historian. There will be an interval with a glass of wine, cheese and 'nibbles.'
Tickets are £15 each, (children under 12 are free) and can be obtained  by emailing

Both Flitcham and West Newton schools hold their Mothering Sunday service during the week before. At each church the children all hold hands and form a circle around the outside of the church. With the help of parents and staff we normally manage to get all the way round!! This medieval practice called Clypping shows respect and love for the Mother church which cares for us throughout our lives.

I am always keen to remind the children that it is Mothering Sunday and not Mothers Day. So as well as giving thanks for our mothers, we also remember all those who care for us and for the Church.
