News from St John's Church
 
 

The Village Show was held on August 16th with slightly fewer entries than last year but (so the judges tell us) a higher quality! Plenty of time to prepare for the competition next year.

We now host Prayers for Farncombe, a group which brings together members of a wide variety of churches around the area to pray for our community and its needs. The group meets in the church at 7pm on the second Monday of each month.

Over the weekend of Heritage Open Days, 13th-14th September, the church hosted a small Exhibition of World War One memorabilia loaned by members of the congregation and Farncombe residents. We were very grateful to Heath-Bullock Antiques for lending us a display case.

The church has just refurbished its kitchen facilities, a long-needed project funded by a legacy. We now have a dishwasher, proper hobs and oven, and new cupboards replacing the ones installed when the Church Room was first built in 1989.
