Letter for the month

Welcome to June and it starts with a lot of busyness and then quietens down after the first week, apart for those in high school as they will be continuing to take exams, GCSE’s or A levels – hope you do your best and get the results you hope for. Obviously, the big thing this month is the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations from 2nd to 5th and I’m sure more information and details of events are in the InTouch magazine. However, by the time you read this every house in Witnesham should have received two books, both gifts from the churches of Witnesham – us and St Mary’s. One is called ‘Our Faithful Queen’ recalling her 70 years of faith and service. The other book is called Defender of the Faith and is a pocket sized Gospel of John. The first book celebrates the life, faith and service of our Queen, Queen Elizabeth II; the other tells the story of The King of Kings – Jesus. Both make for good reading, thought and discussion.

Jointly with St Mary’s Witnesham, we plan to hold an open-air village church celebration on Sunday 5th June at 10:30 am. Where this will be is still in planning as we don’t have a central village green. Please look at Witnesham community social media page. This will celebrate both the Queen’s jubilee and what is known as Pentecost or Whit Sunday – acknowledged as the birthday of the Church globally. Come along to celebrate and learn more; bring a chair as it’s outside!

Other chapel activities continue as shown on our diary page.

Thursday 2nd & Friday 3rd 10:00 am – 3:00 pm church is open for a local History Exhibition; part of Jubilee celebrations.
