An Invitation to a Service of Thanksgiving and Remembrance

(parking is available in the church car park at the far end of Church Lane)

There will be a special service at St Peter’s church, Boxted to give thanks for the lives of loved ones who are no longer with us.

During the service the names of those to be remembered will be read out loud, and there will be an opportunity to light a candle in memory of our loved ones.

It would be lovely if you are able to join us for this service. However, if you are not able to attend but would like the name of your loved one to be remembered in the service please do let Revd Anne Mason know: revdannemason@gmail.com

Operation Christmas Child

New for this year, another way to get involved is to pick up a label from one of the giving trees which will be located at each church. These labels can be taken away, items purchased and donated into the boxes to be used at the packing party on Sunday 21 November at St Peter’s Church, Boxted.

Thank you on behalf of the children who will receive shoebox gifts this year. You’ll bring a big smile to a child’s face, and let them know that they are loved and not forgotten.
