Visitation of the Sick
"Is any sick among you?, let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, &c", (S. James 5-14).

In accordance with the instructions of the Bible and the Prayer Book, the Vicar hopes that parishioners will kindly let him know of all cases of serious sickness with which they may become acquainted,either in their own or in neighbour;s families.

Harvest Thanksgiving

The Band
On Sunday September 24th, the Princess Royal Band gave a rendering of sacred music in the village at 3 o'clock in aid of Mr. Charles Thomas, who was injured three years ago in the Colliery, and has been an invalid ever since, when the collection realised five guineas. While disapproving of Sunday practices and Sunday concerts of a non-charitable kind, we think that all devout people must have been glad to see the Band undertake this work of kindness, and of charity, and must rejoice with them at the results obtained.

Missionary Meetings

The Schools
The Builder is getting on with his work, and has received £100 as payment on the Architect's first certificate. The infants have been moved temporarily to the Assembly Room on Sun Tump, giving up their rooms to the mixed school. Notwithstanding this, there has been much overcrowding in the Mixed School, but the end of the old Schoolroom is being made ready as a Class room, to relieve the pressure. On Sundays, the boys meet in their usual places and the girls seem quite comfortable at the Assembly Room. It seems likely now that everything will go forward without a hitch till the completion of the work, but the Managers feel it all too probable that another Bazaar will be required next summer to clear off the debt.
