Home Made Preserves: Sunday 20th

Jean Wood ‘s home-made preserves have traditionally been sold at the Open Garden Teas at the August Bank Holiday to raise funds for Monxton Church. As this could not happen this year home-made preserves, marmalades, jams and jellies will be sold in the drive of Fourways Cottage (at the crossroads), by kind permission of Mr & Mrs McCausland on Sunday, September 20th from 12 noon until 3pm as part of the Autumn Harvest Celebration.

St Mary’s Church, Monxton

St Mary’s Church will be open this and subsequent Sundays for private prayer with necessary precautions put in place. The PCC has decided not to hold public worship at present, but this will be regularly reviewed as things develop.

Just to update you on the roof appeal:
So far, we have had over £9,000 in donations and we have the promise of a grant of £4,000 from the Historic Churches Trust when the work is completed. The final cost will be in excess of £20,000.
We were hoping this work would have been completed in April but for obvious reasons the contractor was unable to start. We are hoping to get work underway in September this year.
Many thanks for your support.
Monxton PCC

St Mary’s Monxton supports the Andover Foodbank throughout the year and especially at Harvest time when we try to make an extra effort to help those in our area who are in need.

There is a collection box at the west end of the church and donations of non-perishable food such as tinned meat, fish, fruit or vegetables, long-life milk or fruit juice and pasta are always welcome. The box is checked every day. Alternatively, we will gladly collect items from you if that is more convenient.
