News from St John's Church
 
Springbaloons.jpgCome Dance With Us: Our next evening ballroom dancing event, with refreshments and a DJ playing a variety of classic, Latin and jazz tunes, is on Saturday 21st June. Tickets cost £5 and are available from the Church Office or Farncombe Day Centre.
 
Maggie-Stirling Troy started as our curate at the end of June. Maggie is a local lawyer and married to John who teaches at Charterhouse School. She'll be with us for between three and four years, working part-time (usually Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Sundays).

Spring Fair 2014: For the first time in several years the sun shone throughout the day for the St John’s Spring Fair on Saturday May 3rd. Some new charities and organisations took part and the ‘gate’ was well up on last year. The committee is already thinking of new events to add to the programme for next year.

 

Memorialnames.jpgWar Memorial Names: It seems as though the church has been talking about adding the names of Farncombe people who died in World War Two to the war memorial in the Lady Chapel ever since the war ended, but at last it’s taking place. The funds have been provided by a couple of generous legacies to the church.
