Report of the PCC, St Andrews Church, Fersfield
For varying reasons St Andrews has seen the number of services held at the Church reduce to just 4 Services, namely, Easter, Harvest, Remembrance and Christmas.
All of these services are well attended and are extremely popular.
The Church also hosts a number of events during the year, craft fairs, coffee mornings, plant sales etc. These are essential for maintaining the community spirit of the village and also for raising funds.
There is a group of willing cleaners, led by Sharon Cole, who keep the interior of the Church in pristine condition.
The PCC would like to thank the Parish Council for the grant that they make towards the maintenance of the Church grounds.
The Church field which is in the heart of the village has also been the subject of a makeover thanks entirely to grants from various amenity funds and our thanks to James Easter for his help in obtaining these.
After a period of some 18 months without a Church Warden, Paul Sumpter was appointed as Church Warden and it is my hope to make the the Church open for the use of the community, not just as a place of worship but as a centre for the village or just for contemplation.
