It is that time again when the seaside town of Aldeburgh is decorated with carnival explosions of colour. This year the theme is to celebrate 100 years of the wonderful Aldeburgh cinema. There are windows decorated with oscars, giant Jaws (the shark ones) 007 Octopussy, Harry Potter and lots more.
The Revd Mark Lowther led the annual United Carnival Songs of Praise on the green next to the Moot Hall. It was a well attended service with the addition of hand selected people that spoke to Mark about their carnival experiences and what they were doing at this year’s carnival.
We are delighted to welcome James as our new Benefice Assistant Curate.
James was ordained on Saturday 29th July at Bury St Edmunds Cathedral. We started him working the very next day at our Patronal Festival which James acted beautifully as Deacon. We were also joined by the Dean of our Cathedral The Very Revd Joe Hawes. Afterwards we all got the opportunity to chat with James for a bring and share lunch in the Church Hall.
Dru and her team have been very busy decorating our beautiful church for Easter. I am sure you will agree that the flower arrangements are just stunning. Thank you all for creating such a beautiful and welcoming church for all of our Easter visitors.
On Saturday 13th Revd Johanna Mabey led another fun Messy Church event for Easter. We were overjoyed that 39 children (inc two gorgeous babies) and 34 adults attended. It was a joyful event with the story of Easter told by the Revd Mark Lowther, then the creativity begun. A huge thank you to all that came along and all our wonderful volunteers that made it happen. Please take a look at the photos below to see the fun had by all.
Next Messy Church will be for Harvest Festival on Saturday 21st September 10am – 12 noon in the Church Hall. All Welcome.
Every 6 years we have to discard the old electoral roll and start again! 2019 is a sixth year so if you wish to go on the electoral roll (and qualify) you must fill in one of the forms in the west porch, or the back of the church, and then place it in the pigeon hole marked ‘Administrator’. Or just print off the form below and place in the Administrator’s pigeon hole. You can be on two electoral rolls if you meet the required criteria.
We are delighted to see the life-size knitted nativity return back to Aldeburgh Parish Church. The Knit and Natter Group from the Fairfield Centre have been busy again this year and produced additions to the scene with two shepherds, two Suffolk sheep and a lamb. Thank you so much all for all your wonderful efforts and letting us display them again.
Please do come along to visit our Knitted friends. They will be with us throughout the Christmas period to raise money for our Church funds.
We are delighted to announce that Soprano Christina Johnston will be returning again this Christmas to Aldeburgh Parish Church. We had a packed church last year for Christina’s blessing debut album release, and then again in December for a Christmas Concert. Christina holds Suffolk close to her heart and wanted to sing for us all again.
The concert “Chrissy at Christmas” will be on December 22nd 2018 at 7pm, in aid of The Sick Children’s Trust Charity, which Christina is an ambassador for.
Everyone welcome to come along and be treated to a truly magical Christmas treat.
