by professional soprano Alison Pearce, accompanied at the piano by Stewart Taylor. The hour’s programme will include songs to suit all tastes from the classical and romantic repertoire. Wine and soft drinks will be available. Tickets £7.50 on the door. Please publicise this event – posters and fliers available.

Singing Course Alison Pearce will be running a singing course in the church from Sunday afternoon 24th July. From Monday 25th this will run each day from the morning and into the early afternoon; ending on Thursday 28th, when there will be an informal concert at 14:30.

Westbourne bells
Retirement: and the bells should ring for Peter Wilkinson, who has this week stepped down from the role of Tower Captain, the leader of our bell ringers, after his sterling service in that role for 35 years. Our congratulations and warm thanks to Peter for all he has done in that time. He leaves things in the capable hands of Geoff Anthony as caretaker ‘TC’ for a three-month period.

Wednesday morning Communion Service will not take place on 27 July 2022.

Living in Love and Faith course
This continues for the remaining three Tuesdays at 7pm in the Parish Hall (19, 26 July and 3 Aug). If planning to join anew, please let the Rector know in advance. The course examines issues of relationship and identity, sexuality and marriage, from different insights, all within a framework of Christian understanding.

Return of the Chalice
The wine is again a part of our communion services. At 0930, when we can, we will have a communion station in the north aisle, as well as centrally. If you prefer to receive the bread only, please simply return to your seat without visiting the chalice assistant. Please don’t drink from the chalice if you have a cold or fever.
