Ascot Week 2019

 

Please put this year’s Ascot week date of 18th to 22nd June  in your diary as we will once again be asking for volunteers to help with parking, coffee service and afternoon teas. Check with your place of work if you are allowed a day off for ‘volunteering’. There are other occasions when help would be appreciated so please make a note of the following – 1st June for churchyard tidy, 16th June (after 10.30 service) for setting up Hall and Rectory lawn and 22nd June  for dismantling. This is our major fund raising each year and we would welcome your support.

On Sunday 23rd June, there will be a Parish Picnic on the Rectory Lawn to which everyone is invited. Bring your own picnic, drinks provided. After this event we would appreciate some help with moving of tables and chairs to the garage.

Revd Gill Wiggins

A memorial plaque was installed in the Lady Chapel at All Saints' Church on 28th January 2018.

From the Candlemas service that day -

"Candlemas is the linchpin of the Church's year, the day on which we turn from our celebration of Christmas to our celebration of Christ's passion and resurrection. Today we look back and we look forward. As we look back, it is right and proper that we should remember Gill Wiggins, a faithful lay minister and then associate priest in this parish. Gill herself would want our focus to be not on her, but on Christ.  Nonetheless, as we keep our celebration of Simeon and Anna's joyful reception of the Christ-child in the Jerusalem temple of old, it is also right that we remember and celebrate Gill's faithful service in this temple here in Ascot."

"Almighty God, we remember before you today your faithful minister and priest Gill; and we pray that, having opened to her the gates of larger life, you will receive her more and more into your joyful service, that, with all who have faithfully served you in the past, she may share in the eternal victory of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen."
