Loxbeare May Round Up 2023

It has been good to enjoy the lovely spring flowers & see the shrubs & trees beginning to bud, although some suffered with the wind & rain of recent weeks.  But a couple of Swallows already making their appearance at the end of March.  A sign that summer is on its way.

Mothering Sunday was a time of sharing & enjoying the full English Breakfast cooked by the men.  Many thanks to all who contributed & to those who cooked & served etc.  Also thank you to all who led & took part in the service afterward.

At the time of writing, we will be remembering Jesus' death & resurrection with Steph taking our Easter Sunday Service with Dave leading the worship.  He is Risen Hallelujah.

Our APCH will have taken place on 16 April after the service.  Thank you to all for fulfilling their positions & serving the Church community so well.

There will be a PCC meeting on 16 May.
