An Advent Course & All Souls Service

Advent Course

We will be starting an Advent Course based on the book How Rural Churches Thrive which is available on line at £9.99. This is an easy to read and practical book that is applicable to all churches in our Haven Benefice, providing encouragement and challenging us as we prepare for our future as a Benefice. It will run each Wednesday evening in Brading Church Hall between 6pm and 7.30pm starting on Wednesday 9th November.

All Souls Service

The service of All Souls, when we remember our departed loved ones, will be held at 4.00pm on Sunday 30th October in St Peter’s Church Seaview. There will be clip boards in St Peter’s Church, St Helen’s Church and St Catherine’s Chapel where the names of your loved ones can be written down and will then be read out at this service. Everyone is very welcome to attend..

What's On

St Mary’s Church: Sandown and Shanklin Military Band will be playing at St Mary's on Sunday 16th October at 3 pm. Volunteers are needed to make cakes and/or serve teas and coffees at the end of the concert.

The Harvest Lunch at St Peters was a happy occasion raising £556.50 towards church roof repairs. Thanks to all who made this happen from decorating the room, donating food & bringing raffle prizes to cooking, entertaining us, washing up and clearing the hall. This was a team effort that is very much appreciated by all who came along.

Christmas is Coming! This year we have two Christmas Cards by Liz Fletcher for sale with all proceeds going in aid of St Peter’s Church.
