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.

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.
