We are very pleased to announce that after three years as the Curate of East Meon, Langrish, West Meon and Warnford, Katy has been appointed as Rector of Backwell with Chelvey and Brockley in the Diocese of Bath and Wells. While glad for her, we shall be very sorry to see her go.
Her licensing will be on Thursday 18th July at 7.30pm and Rev’d Jane is organising a coach to take people from here to it.
Katy’s final service here will be a joint service for all four of our Churches on 30th June 10.30am at East Meon. It will be followed by a bring and share lunch and ‘bubbly’.
Special services and events
23rd June – 5.30pm at East Meon
Sung Evensong with Index Cantorum.
This service will end The East Meon Open Gardens day as it did successfully last year.
Friday 26th July 6.30pm for 7pm at Langrish
A concert given by the FB Pocket Orchestra in aid of Langrish Church.
The orchestra is a trio of two guys and a female clarinet playing singer. They play a range of instruments from euphonium to banjo/guitar and their music is light entertainment, jazz, musical numbers and popular songs. This should be a ‘fun’ concert. There will be a donation bar. Please do come along and bring your friends. Tickets are obtainable from David Mowlam. (See flyer for details).
Please see Pew leaflets for further details and new events
After five years, the Rev’d Jane’s name has finally been added to the board inside the Church with all the names of the Vicar’s of St John the Evangelist Langrish on it.
In addition, the large blue road-side notice has been replaced, with all the details of Services and other contacts now up-to-date.
You will have noticed that part of the Church’s refurbishment, the lych gate has rebuilt with solid green oak which should last for years. The gates which were becoming very ‘fragile’ are also being replaced.
