Despite fitting perfectly and being supported by a lovely belt, sometimes my trousers slip down a bit and I need to hoist them up. These things happen! Our stated intention is to recite Morning Prayer (Lauds) half an hour before Mass, so that there is a gap between it and the Holy Sacrifice. This has been gently slipping closer and closer to the start time for Mass for a while. This may be because people want me to arrive and give Benediction, but the Wells/Cheddar road is too unreliable for this. We need to allow people who are not attending the Office to slip in without walking in on Benediction. We also need to allow sacristans the necessary time to get us all ready. Please endeavour to arrive in good time and start promptly. (Fr. Philip)


Painting the Church

The painting of the outside of the church and the inside of the sacristy will start on Monday 24th September. It is planned to commence the internal work on the Monday, so that it is finished in time for the Thursday mass. There will of course be some disruption during this work. Thanks for your understanding and co-operation.
