What’s been happening in the Church this week?

Progress report – 15 December 2022

Thank you to everyone who came to the open day.  You can read about it in Wokingham.today at https://wokingham.today/church-invites-visitors-to-imagine-the-future.   Sue James came with a better camera than is usually used for these photos and the library stock has grown by another 100. Thank you to Sue.

There was lots of conversation about who can use the building when it opens and how – just the sort of discussion we want to have.

The work on the trenches for the drains is nearly complete, and a bit of snow makes it all look quite pretty.  One of the trenches had to have a slight dog leg to avoid a tomb but generally this has been completed without a hitch and all have been back-filled.  Some bones were found and carefully bagged up by our archaeologists.

Thank you to everyone who is giving to the appeal, to the chairs, the organ and the main appeal.  Please help us get there quickly – details of how to donate are on our web site.

 


Although the building itself is closed, worship continues in The Cornerstone on Sundays (8, 9.30 and 11.15am) and on weekdays (Tuesday and Wednesday at 10 am and Thursday at 9 am) and the bell ringers will have access to the tower again.  There is still access to almost all the churchyard either through the lychgate in London Road or the double gate in Norreys Avenue. The memorials by The Cornerstone and by the vestry door can be accessed by arrangement with the Parish office.
