Farewells at Woodmancote

At the end of the service churchwardens Peggy Whiting and Richard Hill presented Alastair with a framed picture of St. Peter’s, and a cross carved from some of the ancient medieval oak headstock for the bells, left over after the 2012 restoration of the bells.

Alastair & Kay’s final farewell in the Benefice will be at St. Peter’s, Henfield, on Easter Sunday evening, at the ecumenical Easter Praise service, 6:30pm, on the 31 March 2013.

Alastair is to be the next Archdeacon of Lewisham and Greenwich. His installation will be at Southwark Cathedral on Sunday 14 April at 3pm. All are welcome.
