ST MICHAEL LITTLE ANGELS LIGHT PARTY- AN ALTERNATIVE TO HALLOWEEN

Since lockdown, we have not been able to meet up for messy church with our lovely families.   We know that you will not be able to go ‘Trick or Treat’ so we are delighted to offer:

What:           The St Michael Little Angels Light Party

When:          Saturday, 31st October at 3.30pm. 

Where:         The comfort of your own homes via Zoom

 There will be lots of fun for an hour or so, including some jaw-dropping crazy science, puppetry and singing to action songs with Doug Horley, known as Duggie Dug Dug, one of the UK’s leading Children’s worker and writer of many well-known songs.  So grab a comfortable cushion, a hotdog or popcorn, and something to drink, and join in the fun. If you would like to come, please contact Rev Bev on: revbev@pirbrightchurch.org.uk or Pauline Cannon on 07745  121958, or Email pauline@normandyparklodge.com   You can also check out Duggie Dug Dug’s Dollop Song on

THE LOFTY BEECH TREE

You will know the sad news that this noble tree has been found to be unsafe after the massive branch fall during the storm in August.  Adam Holt, who won the bidding process, will be felling this on Sat 24 October and there will be some smaller pieces which are around 18 ins diameter for you to take away over the weekend before he returns on Mon and Tues to clear everything left.   For health and safety reasons please remove with care and do not use any tools in the churchyard.  Physical help can be arranged if you let Catherine know in advance (07947 032210).

This unexpected job is costing St Michael’s the princely sum of £4200 and we are asking everyone to consider making a donation (gift-aided if possible) according to their means.     This can be easily arranged via the front page of our website – pirbrightchurch.org.uk.   Again please contact Catherine if you need help.

IF YOU NEED A MASK the Social and Fundraising team are making them! 

There is a choice of style and colour. More details are on the church website or email socialandfundraising@pirbrightchurch.org.uk or call 07777 659138
