Services in May

Sunday 19th May is Whitsunday (or Pentecost) which falls on the seventh Sunday after Easter and commemorates the descent of the Holy Spirit upon Christ’s disciples. This is followed on 26th May by Trinity Sunday when the Christian doctrine of the Trinity, the three Persons of God: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit is celebrated.

The Annual Parish Church Meeting will be held in church after the 11.00 service. All those on the church’s electoral roll are invited to attend as well as anyone resident in the parish. The first meeting is for the Election of Churchwardens, the second covers the election of the PCC and the various PCC officers and the presentation of reports including the financial statement.

D-Day 80 6 June 2024
Printing of the fliers seems to be running behind schedule but hopefully they will be delivered to each house in the parish within the next week.

Apuldram’s D-Day connections
Jose Pound is compiling a very interesting history of Apuldram’s involvement in the WWII period and in particular around D-Day. This will be displayed on boards in the DQSC on 6th June and then move into the church for the summer.
She asks if anyone in the village has any stories about D-Day, either personal recollections or narratives passed down through families or friends. If you can help she would love to hear from you no later than Friday 7th May. [email protected]

Mini D-Day Flower Festival in the church
The flower team would  welcome donations for the flowers in remembrance of a family member who played a part in the D-Day Landings.
If you would like to donate please let Jose Pound know [email protected]

An end to the winter’s rain and flooding (almost….)
We are so very grateful to all those who persevered throughout the long, wet winter with attempting to keep Church Road passable.  Marcus in particular has done an amazing job with clearing the ditch and filling in potholes and everyone is relieved to be able to drive to the church without major problems. Thank you to everyone who has worked so hard to combat the flooding.
