A message from the vicar
October is the month when church attendance statistics are collected and although, hopefully, allowances will be made for the current pandemic situation it would be good if those of you who are able do attend.
The first service is tomorrow (Sunday 11 October 2020 at 10:00 am) at Brightling and the second is at Mountfield on Sunday 18 October 2020, which will be the only Harvest Festival. Jackie will play the familiar hymns and although we cannot sing we can hum through our face masks!
A collection of non-perishable foodstuffs for a local foodbank will be made on the 18th but donations can be brought to Brightling tomorrow or left at the Rectory at any time before the 20th.
Demand at food banks has increased recently and will be particularly high during the school half term holiday.
