Our lovely chapel has just celebrated being in existence for 170 years serving the local villages. There is an ancient tombstone in our graveyard that gives the names of one of the first ministers and his wife at the chapel. I have found the story that it tells inspiring, and has made me want to know more about them so I have got my friend Chris on the case!!! News on this may follow!

To celebrate we had our Chairman of the District minister come to take our morning worship and then held a lunch together. The following Saturday we had a great time at Pett Village Hall by holding a Barn Dance for friends at church and in the villages. The Pettlers, (our scratch band) made their debut and were brilliant! (I’m not biased….much!) The supper was delicious and what with the laughter we had a really good time. A wonderful way to celebrate 170 years!

July 21st saw the result of our poetry competition, which involved a variety of poems of all types form Haiku to limericks. These were presented at an evening of poetry at the chapel.

Sadly our Messy Church booked for July 14th had to be cancelled but the next is planned for Saturday September 1st 3pm – 5pm.

Fishy, our gospel folk/rock band will be holding a concert at the chapel on Saturday September 8th with friends, so if your diary is blank for that night please come along.
