Easter in Church

We are very appreciative of the effort that all the flower arrangers make throughout the year. They make a special effort for Easter and within that effort are the Easter Lillies. Lynn Cooper collects to meet the cost of these. If you would like to contribute, everyone who is in church for Easter Sunday or comes in to appreciate the church will…

May Fayre

Monday May 1st – it doesn’t happen very often that the May Fayre is actually on May Day and it is a time when the whole village has its own fun but also works hard to ensure there are opportunities for fun and a day of pleasure for the many who will come and join us. Make sure the date is in your…

Lent Giving

Our approach to Lent should be a positive one-give something up by all means, if that is your choice, but think about using the proceeds of that as part of caring for others. Our approach in Braunston, for many years, has been to raise funds for Water Aid through the ‘Little Red Bucket’ which will be at every service during Lent and…

Village Historical Calendar

May I thank everyone who supported the sales of the village historical calendar, and the generous donations and sponsors which I received. I am delighted to report a magnificent total of in excess of £1900! As a result the local air ambulance will receive £500, and just over £700 each will be given to Braunston Church and the Village Hall. A huge…

Lent and our Giving

Lent is a time when many of us give up something for Lent. The real basis for that is that what we save in doing so can be part of our charitable activities. For many years now we have collected throughout Lent up to, and including Easter Day for WATERAID. We start again on the First Sunday in Lent and “the little…

Sing Sunday

We all want to sing the old familiar hymns to their traditional tunes and Sing Sunday is an opportunity to come and do that. There is also the challenge to tackle some of the tremendous number of new hymns and worship songs which we hear on Songs of Praise and in other churches. These we practice first and then knit all of…
