    Image of the Week #19

    Whilst out in the churchyard this bitterly cold morning (we were bird spotting for the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch), this moss covered gravestone caught my eye. There must be every shade of green here… so beautiful!

    ‘Restoration couple sing from the same hymn sheet’

    ‘…a family who are doing a conversion of Biblical proportions’ The headlines of a feature about our efforts here at Christ Church in this week’s County Times, our local paper. We’re really pleased that Bronwen Jones, the County Times features reporter, happened to walk past recently and wondered what was going on here! I was quite nervous about having all…

    A snowy Christ Church. This photograph was taken yesterday, but it looks like it could have been taken 100 years ago, with the absence of any colour. Image of the Week #18

The tree is not quite as majestic as we’ve had in the past, but it is still rather nice in it’s own humble way. It is nice having a ‘real’ tree as they are always so different from year to year.

I just love the costumes! And it’s nice to see the Apse end in the background. From Left to Right: Back: Geoff Lloyd, Roy Jones, Norma Gittins,…
