A time of reflection exploring the Gift of Joy

The service will be led by Chris Grimshaw with the participation of the community choir and others.

This is the 2nd Sunday village service based around The Book of Joy, a book written about the time when Desmond Tutu visited the Dalai Lama, documenting their close friendship and the discussions they had together on the question: how do we find joy in the face of life’s inevitable suffering?

St David’s Coffee Morning

Coffee mornings are held in the village hall every Thursday from 10.30 – 12.00 am.  It is a pleasant time to meet friends and other villagers over coffee and cake. All are very welcome. A small library of fiction and DVDs for villagers to borrow and return is being created upstairs in the committee room. It’s available at the coffee morning so you can grab a book, a coffee and Claire’s delicious cake all at the same time!
