New Hymn Number Board

Thanks to the generosity of 'The Friends of St Ippolyts Church' we now have a new oak hymn number board in St Ippolyts Church. The old metal one which was originally made at St Ippolyts Foundry and donated Michael Skeggs has proved to be just too heavy to manipulate and it was felt we should have a lighter board which would be easier to lift up and down. The new board is certainly in keeping with our church and once again thanks to 'The Friends'.

Another successful Parish Hall Christmas Fair

What a manic two hours at the annual Christmas Parish Hall Fair. From the time of opening the doors at 2 p.m. to the finish at around 4.30 p.m. the hall was packed with parishioners buying raffle tickets, playing at the various tombola stalls, guessing how many sweets there were in a jar, trying to put marbles into a upturned flower pot, visiting Father Christmas in his grotto or just having a cup of tea and a delicious piece of cake. The St Ippolyts Church PCC had a tombola stall which was incredibly popular. Well done to Jane and Jennifer Veasey for putting all the prizes together and for Jane, Jenny and Mary for manning the stall. Your junior churchwarden was there trying to sell his Christmas Quiz Sheets. In the end the stall raised well over £160 half of which is for the Parish Hall funds.

St. Ippolyts Church 29th& 30th November 11-5

Get into the spirit of Christmas and pay a visit to the St. Ippolyts Church Nativity Crib Festival.

As one or our young contributors says:-

“You should come to the Crib festival at St Ippolyts Church because there are so many different cribs that are put in each year !

There are at least 50 (usually over 100) if not more ,from the tiniest ,to a large church crib.
Some of these cribs have a long history ,and some will be new.
There are cribs that have been bought when people have travelled all over the world ! One crib is even made from orange peel !
You can also enjoy a cup of tea/coffee, cold drink and a cake !!!
I always look forward to this occasion at Christmas, because it is lovely to see every crib there, who entered them, and the history behind each one.
It's the start of the lead up to Christmas for me.
We hope to see you there.
Issie Volske year 7”

You will also be able to have a go at our competition and become a crib owner yourself.

Entry is £2 and children are free.

New Disabled ramp nears completion

The Church North porch new permanent disabled access is now in operation although there remains a few finishing touches to complete the work. A big thank yoiu to Roland Bailey who has carried out this new construction as well as installing a new bookcase and notice board at the South entrance.

The disabled access is a welcome addition to the church infrastructure and means that we will not need to lug the heavy ex British Railways ramp from the North porch everytime we have a service or event.
