During April, our set services are the celebration of the Eucharist on the first Sunday of the month (6th April) followed by a Sung Evensong on the third Sunday (20th April) – both are at 6.30 pm. The latter falls on Easter Day when we shall be singing some rousing seasonal hymns! As usual, everyone is very welcome to attend either or both of these services.
EASTER EGG HUNT
At 3 o’clock on the afternoon of Easter Day, Margaret Waite will once again be holding her popular Easter Egg Hunt and so all children and their parents are invited to come along and join in the fun.
The Bishop of Dover will conduct a Confirmation at All Saints, Lydd on 29th September. If there’s anyone in the village who wishes to consider being confirmed then please initially contact either Margaret Waite or myself.
The mobile library is based at Ashford and continues to call at the Village Hall car park on alternate Wednesdays between 10.45 and 11.10.
The annual village litter pick took place on 2nd March when around 50 bags of rubbish plus assorted tyres and other junk were collected from the verges. Mike Bartlett reports that there was a really good turn out and it’s amazing that so much was collected within just a couple of hours.
FIRST WORLD WAR CENTENARY PROJECT
To mark the start of World War 1 the Parish invites everyone in Ivychurch to find one ancestor who was involved in World War 1.
Their stories ought to be remembered and their acts recorded. All we need is a name and a brief description of their part in the war. If you can find out more details such as their regiment, their war record, the battles they were involved in and what happened to them that would be even better. The loan of photographs would also be much appreciated as they would give the stories some context and make them live for another generation – we can arrange to have any photographs scanned, copied and safely returned to their owners.
The stories will be on display in the church for everyone to read and at the Remembrance Service in November they will be a part of our act of remembrance.
