ou will be aware that Fr Gareth Jones died on 9th October and that his funeral took place in Yeovil.
 
Many people who knew Fr Gareth were unable to travel to the funeral so there is to be a Requiem Mass and Thanksgiving for his life at St Wilfrid’s on Saturday 25th November at 11am. The celebrant will be the Bishop of Horsham, Fr Gareth’s godson. The service will be followed by the interment of Fr Gareth’s ashes in the area outside the Duchy door.
 
As Fr Gareth served the parish for a number of years it is hoped that many of you will be able to attend this service.

Christmas Decorations
We are very fortunate to have had a new crib set donated this year to replace the very broken and cobbled together set we’ve been using. Donors have also already paid for a large Christmas tree. We’d love to add new lights and other decorations. The total cost is about £500. Are there members of the congregation who would like to donate between them to enhance our decorations. As we will be in church this year throughout the season your donation will be very much on show! If you can help, please send your gift marked “Christmas Decorations” to the office. Thank you.

Fr Gary is delighted to announce that the Chancellor of the Diocese has approved our Faculty application for the new heating scheme.
(Faculty jurisdiction is the legal process which exempts the Church of England from having to use the local planning system). Work is already in hand to agree a start date and order the new radiators as well as to fit a new gas meter.
Once a start date is confirmed (likely to be mid August) the works should take up to 10 weeks. The engineers will work around services as much as possible - but there is likely to be some disruption at times.
Your patience would therefore be very much appreciated. 
The excellent news is, of course that by the winter, we should have a church which isn’t freezing! Thanks be to God.
