What a great day at Barrowden with the fund raising for St Peter’s. The Fete had everything, with superb weather, loads of visitors and villagers, vintage cars, a wide of range of stalls manned by willing volunteers, excellent fellowship, a Spitfire fly past, a closely contested Duck race and all finished off by the Barrowden Bop in the evening expertly provided by Tom and Joanne from the Exeter Arms.
Thanks to Clive Holland and all his team for the organisation of the event.

After the 9.30am service in Duddington on Sunday 1st July 2018,
Audrey and Ray Kilsby shared their recent experience of a visit to
The Light In Africa Childrens Home, Tanzania.
We very much appreciated the support provided during the Duddington Family Service on the morning of Sunday, 1 July and were pleased to share with all of those present some of our experiences during our recent visit to Tanzania. ‘Light in Africa’ is very dear to our hearts and we will be actively supporting this charity for as long as we are able to do so. It was wonderful to see our church so full.” Audrey and Ray.
Below is a photograph of the presentation of a birthday cake to celebrate Audrey’s 80th birthday .

SUNDAY 24th JUNE 11.00 am ST. PETER’S PATRONAL FESTIVAL
Stilling of the Storm (Mk. 4.35 – 41)
Masses of beautiful flowers; the church cleaned and polished; a wonderful peal of bells and rushes on the floor to celebrate.
A great calm followed the storm. Some places accumulate an atmosphere of peace and churches are high up among them. We go there to seek peace, not to escape but to renew ourselves for daily life where peace is so often very scarce.
Janet and Brian collect the rushes for the Patronal Festival at Barrowden Church.
