St Boniface Church

Happy New Year from Bonchurch.  My goodness there seems to have been so much happening since last I wrote and there is plenty more to come in the following year.Our Bumper Christmas Coffee Morning was held at the end of November and was a huge success.  Many thanks to all who supported it and to those who baked and sewed and washed up for it.  It was a very happy occasion.Our next excitement was hosting Orpheus Singers for a Service of Nine Lessons and Carols which was really lovely.  I think everyone enjoyed the tea and cake afterwards too! Our thanks go to Michael Mathews who decorated the church for Christmas virtually single handed and the result was stunning.

DATES FOR YOUR DIARY

As ever there will be a Coffee Morning on the 1stTuesday of every month. The next one will be on Tuesday February 5th.  The Sewing Bees will also continue on the 3rdTuesday of each month the next one being Tuesday February 19th.

Tuesday February 19this also when we will welcome the Brighton Youth Ensemble back again.  They are an astonishingly talented group of young musicians who play to a very high standard.  Last year they gave us the most lovely concert which we all enjoyed.  I know the idea of turning out on a cold February night is not always appealing but our church is very cosy and warm and I would really encourage you to come.  You will be in for a treat.  The concert starts at 7pm and entry is free.  There will be refreshments served in the interval and a retiring collection taken.

The next date for your diary (apart from the regular coffee mornings and sewing bees) will be our Easter Fair to be held in the Parish church from10 am to 12 noon on Saturday April 13th.

The other important date for your diary for the summer is Friday June 14th to Sunday June 16th when we will be holding a Flower Festival. Again, details will follow in due course.

Christmas Fayre.  Bonchurch will be on Saturday November 23rd from 10 am to 12 noon.
