Having marked this month of remembering with an All Souls service to remember departed loved ones (see the candle photos on twitter @DownsStour and Stour Downs page on facebook), we turn to mark Remembrance Day on Sunday 11th November with services of Remembrance at Brabourne, Mersham and Sellindge churches, with a special evening vigil to mark the centenary of the end of the Great War, which is at 6pm in Monks Horton. 

This month there are two opportunities to gather together to watch a film in our churches- another great film night at Mersham on 9th November at 7pm, and on the 10th November 7pm at Brabourne for "Hot Lips and Cold War"- with supper. 

For your early(ish) Christmas shopping, get along to the Christmas craft fair at St Mary's Brabourne on the 24th November, and St Mary's Sellindge Christmas fayre on 17th November.

See the parish diary for the coffee and craft mornings to meet new friends and support church and community fundraising, not forgetting our usual Knit and Knatter and Fridays@3.
