The new monthly pattern of servicescontinues with a Eucharist at 9.30 am
on Sunday 13th September and a special Harvest Evensong at 6.30 pm on
27th September. As usual, all are welcome and we would be extremely grateful
to receive any Harvest produce which will be distributed amongst the sick and
elderly of the neighbourhood.
This year’s Harvest Supper is on 26th September at 7 for 7.30 pm. Ticket prices
are £12.50 for adults and £6 for children. Tickets can be purchased from John
on 01797 344090 or Margaret on 01797 344283. As in previous years, please
bring your own alcoholic beverage(s) and don’t forget to wrap up warmly!
MOBILE LIBRARY – USE IT OR LOSE IT!
We’re very fortunate to have the services of our mobile library but sad to report
that so few Ivychurch residents actually use it that its future is now being called
into doubt. Please support the library which calls every other Wednesday at 10.45.
During September the library will be here on 9th and 23rd of the month.
RIDE AND STRIDE
The annual Kent Churches Sponsored Ride and Stride is on Saturday 12th September.
Like most of the churches in Kent, St George’s will be open for this event from
10 am until 6 pm. Can anyone spare an hour or two to sign in the riders or walkers,
or to ride or walk or even sponsor riders or walkers in aid of St George’s? Details
and sponsorship forms are on the notice board in the church porch or ring Margaret
on 01797 344283 for further information.
IVYCHURCH ART SHOW
This will be held in the Village Hall on 10th – 11th October. Anyone interested in
exhibiting please ring 01797 344277 or visit www.ivychurch.org.uk Further
information will be available in the October magazine.
LATIN MASS AT SNAVE
The Latin Mass Society are holding a Tridentine Mass at St Augustine’s, Snave
at midday on Saturday 26th September. This historic occasion will be the first
time since the Reformation that a Latin Mass has been celebrated in an Anglican
church anywhere on the Marsh and certainly marks a further welcome thawing
of relationships between Canterbury and Rome. Visitors are most welcome to
attend the Mass.
IVYCHURCH ST. GEORGE
Where the word “in” appears before a date it signifies that the
priest was in occupation of the benefice during that year but
the date of his institution is not known.
