New incumbent. The team have met to make a start on the Benefice Profile, a mixture of images and text giving a realistic depiction of our benefice and communities.
Tower Repair work. Work on the tower is completed.
Fundraising. Given that the PCC has recently paid a significant proportion of our church funds on the tower work, it’s vital now to have new energy and effort put into fundraising. Several useful ideas have been put forward and we need people to carry them forward. Please come and talk to the church wardens or the treasurer about this. A display of photos of the work and the tower is in the Compton Area. Photos are also on the Facebook page.

During October, this church is supporting Tear Fund. After services, you can make your donations using the special collection dish, found either at the church door or in the Compton area.
New Forest Basics Bank aims to provide support and help to individuals and families in need. The collecting box is in church. You are welcome to bring donations of non perishable food and hygiene items whenever the church is open, which will support those in need coming up to Christmas.
