All Saints and All Souls This Sunday our socially distanced outdoor in person service at 10am in the churchyard will be Holy Communion, and then in the afternoon at 4pm we have our special All Souls Service. Our regular radio/fb service will broadcast by our friends at Castledown FM and on our fb page at 10am, for anyone preferring to worship that way. Wherever we are, we will join our praise and prayers together.
We are continuing to hold our services outdoors as much as possible, so as the weather cools don’t be shy about dressing up warm, bringing a blanket along with your folding chair and waterproofs.
Our Christmas Card is now making its way to homes in the parish, delivered by our lovely volunteers. It is a little token of the warmth of welcome there is for you here at St James, and at our sister church, Holy Trinity in Tidworth. On it are details of all our Christmas services – see photos below. Please do come! We look forward to seeing you.
Join us during the Advent and Christmas for services and events of all sorts : there are carols aplenty – traditional, with bells, with curry, and even down the pubs! Loud and jolly, or quiet and contemplative, you are warmly invited to celebrate the birth of our Saviour, Jesus Christ, at St James.
Remembrance Sunday is always a very special day for our community here in Ludgershall and Faberstown, and this year was extra special, with the families of the Fallen from the Great War from this place helping us to dedicate and open the new Centenary Garden, following our service and Act of Remembrance at the War Memorial. Wonderful pictures of a moving day. Lest we forget.
