Remembrance Sunday 12th November. This year for the first time we will be joining with the Parish Council, Scouts, Guides and other local organisations for a joint Act of Remembrance in the village.  This will begin with a procession through Denmead at 10.30am from the Memorial Hall to the Village Green.  At 10.55 we will gather at the  Village Green for a Christian Act of Remembrance and laying of wreaths.  There will be limited seating under cover for those who need it.  After the service finishes all will be welcome to All Saints, either for refreshments in the church hall or for further, quiet reflection and prayer in the church. Please note, there will be no 9.30am service at All Saints.

FOOD PLEASE! – for the Royal Marines Band Concert on Wednesday 22 November.

There has been a brilliant response to previous requests for interval refreshments and everyone is very appreciative of all the delicious canapés… so we’re asking you to do the same again for the forthcoming concert.you can help by donating a platter of food, please complete the list at the back of church, take a platter from the basket, fill it with buffet snacks of your choice and bring it along to the Church Hall after 2pm on 22nd Food can include cocktail sausages, sausage rolls, vol-au-vents, mini sandwiches, cheese & pineapple, mini cupcakes… anything that doesn’t require cutting up beforehand and can be easily eaten with one hand whilst holding a glass of wine in the other! The concert is a sell-out so we need lots of full platters – and remember that all the concert profits go towards Church Funds so your help is invaluable. Thanks,Gill Barge (9226 8565)
