Welcome to the Gallery!
Below are a few photos to illustrate
the kind of activities which go on at
the Parish Church.
Danny's licencing at Loudwater
Danny Rodgers, late of this parish, was instituted as Vicar of St Peter's, Loudwater, on Wednesday 13th November 2019. The Bishop of Buckingham, Bishop Alan, presided. We took a coachload down to cheer him on, and the local congregation greeted Danny, Ali, Peter and Emily very warmly. We were even given party poppers to use at the right moment, as you can see!
Major Revd Will Pearson-Gee led the traditional service of Remembrance round the War Memorial on Sunday.
A few photos capture the occasion, where the weather was dry and bright, if not warm.
Wow, what a weekend that was!! Superb teaching from Paul and Christine Perkin, wonderful food throughout, and hilarious entertainment on Saturday night. All in all, an unforgettable experience.
All kinds of leaders gathered for a social at BPC on Monday 8th July 2019. Will welcomed and thanked all those who lead in various areas of church life. Special thanks to Jacqui and Alex for a superb supper!
Beachampton hosted a Benefice Lunch on Sunday 23rd June 2019. There was the added celebration of Cyril's birthday, so we all sang 'Happy Birthday' at the tops of our voices!
Easter Alive! took place on Easter Sunday at 6pm and the service included several baptisms by total immersion. When Danny Rodgers (curate) invited anyone who wanted to be baptised to come forward, Leonie made the decision to go to the front and was duly immersed!
On Good Friday, St Peter and St Paul's church held a half-hour service in church before processing to the Old Gaol following the Cross. We were addressed by a Roman Centurion and Rev Tim Edworthy. After the gathering, we descended on The Centre in Verney Close for hot cross buns.
Ali and Danny Rodgers spoke very movingly at the men's and women's breakfast on April 6th. They recently adopted two young children, Emily and Peter, and they related their experience. The breakfast was excellent too!
Jacqui Cooke organised a Sparkles evening to raise money for the kitchen.
A few of the sparkling people who attended. Alex and Jacqui Cooke above left.
We sadly said farewell to Revd. Gussie on October 28th. She will be much missed, not least in the villages.
Gussie is the one on the right...
