The September meeting of St Mary's PCC was held in the Church and we were able to admire the new pulpit and the work being carried out to refurbish and decorate the vestry, to make better use of the limited space. A new sound system has been installed in the Church and, thanks to new technology, will be a great improvement on the old system.
The induction of Roger Chapman as our new Priest-in-Charge will take place in the Church on Monday, November 2nd. The Bishop of Bedford will conduct the service which will be followed by refreshments in the Village Hall. The PCC are grateful to Eaton Bray WI and the Pantomime producers for changing their bookings with the Hall for the evening.
Roger has agreed to open St. Mary's Christmas Fair, in aid of Church funds, on Saturday, November 14th. This event promises to be bigger and better than previous years so make a date in your diary now!

- Saturday, December 19th - Carols at Edlesborough Church

- Thurs, Dec 24th - candle Services at St Mary's, Eaton Bray, 11.30pm Midnight Mass.
