We will be welcoming Mr Graham Chewter, Deputation speaker for the Trinitarian Bible Society, on Tuesday 28 November. The meeting will be at the chapel.

This year marks the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. on 31 October 1517 Martin Luther published the 95 Theses, or points for debate, in which he challenged the practice of selling indulgences. The resulting furore led to the Protestant Reformation. A service of Evening Prayer was held, and the sermon may be found on the Worship page.
We are part of The Church of England (Continuing) and attended the Annual Assembly on Saturday 1 July. This was held at Benson Parish Hall, Oxfordshire. Our speaker this year was the Rev Maurice Roberts, from Inverness. Recordings of his two addresses are found here (first session, ‘Justification by faith’) and here (second session, ‘More than conquerors’).
The chapel organises regular fellowship meals to which all of the congregation and visitors are welcome. These are normally held in the chapel hall after morning service on the first Sunday of each month; however, the next will be on 12 November.
The next Chapel Council meeting is planned for 22 November at 7.30 pm, in the Small Hall.
The Heritage weekend in September 2017 reflected the 500th anniversary of the start of the Reformation. The Chapel was open on Thursday and Friday between 10 am and 2 pm, and on Saturday between 9 am and 5.30 pm, as well as the scheduled services on the Sunday. It is anticipated that similar arrangements will apply in 2018 - the dates will be from September 13 to September 16.
Occasional rambles are organised — these are publicised in the monthly newsletter.
