Way Forward for Longparish Church and village.
Our Way Forward campaign was launched at our Harvest service in September and six folders are now circulating around the village outlining our plans for the church and village, and we are inviting responses. These should have been circulated by October 15th and the results analysed, so that we can include an insert in the November Hill & Valley for all Longparish households.
We shall have a Thanksgiving Service, linking in with All Saintstide
on Sunday, November 3rd at 9.30am, when we shall be joined by the Ven.
John Guille, Archdeacon of Winchester, and Mr Gordon Randall, Diocesan
Resources Adviser. If you would like to see a folder and dont appear
to be included, please phone me and I will happily arrange it.
