Barrowden Re-Ordering Bulletin No. 6

Barrowden Re-Ordering Bulletin No. 6

  • As 2018 draws to a close the builders are in their final week of work before the Christmas shutdown.
  • We had a good Open Morning on 8 December.
  • Visitors were very impressed with the new-look church and the quality of the chairs we’ve chosen.
  • Now that the concrete sub-floor is finished, brickwork for the Meeting Room and WC is being laid.
  • And a lot of insulation for the floor has appeared !


  • Here’s a photo of one of the old pews, beautifully restored in its new home, Sally and Stuart Brown’s kitchen.
  • Our fundraising is ongoing and we are seeking to add to the £132,750 we’ve raised in grants.
  • We are close to being able to do everything we want to do but we’re not quite there yet.
  • Perhaps we will receive a few Christmas presents!
Thank you for your continued support and encouragement.

Contemplative Prayer Meeting – Monday 26th November 2018

Contemplative Prayer Meeting – Monday 26th November 2018

is held on the last Monday of each month at 6.00 pm

at 23c Main Street, BARROWDEN

Come for a quiet moment of reflection in the peace and love of God’s presence.

Welcome for a time of silence to reflect, pray or

enjoy centring self to the calm of the moment.

 People may drop in for any period of time within that hour

silently entering and leaving so not to disturb.

 Silent reflection can be carried out alone, one can eat alone but is so much more uniting when shared with others.

“ Where two or three have gathered in My name, there I am in their midst” Matthew 18:20
