Graham's Last Service
Parham church was filled with well-wishers for Graham's last service with us. It was a lovely service in the Celtic tradition and although it was sad to say goodbye to Graham and Sue, it was also uplifting and included the re-commissioning of four of our Lay Elders. Afterwards we gathered in Parham Village Hall for refreshments and the presentation of a cheque to Graham to thank him for his work, and there were flowers for Sue. We wish them both every happiness for a long and fulfilling retirement. Our loveand kind thoughts go with them to wherever they move and whatever they choose to do.

Today, the 11th November 2021, a wreath was laid at the Kettleburgh War Memorial following the The Last Post played on a bugle. This wreath will also be placed at the Memorial Service at Brandeston commencing at 1030 on Sunday 14 November before being returned to Kettleburgh.
An excellent showing of Kettleburgh volunteers worked hard to tidy up the churchyard.
Thanks to all those that turned up and to those who provided “elevenses”
St Andrew’s Church was beautifully decorated for the Harvest Festival. In place of our traditional harvest supper, we served light refreshments at the back of church afterwards.
St Andrew’s church is also open for private prayer.
Please use hand sanitiser before entering and when leaving the building.
Remember to respect other people’s space.
Our Orebeck Benefice Pilgrim's Prayer
Open our hearts to your love, Father God, as we journey with you;
Renew us each day, as we dwell in your presence.
Encourage us when we feel downtrodden,
Bring us comfort when we are sad.
Enliven us so that we may always be ready to serve You, and
Care for others in the strength of God's love.
Kindle, we pray, all that works towards the coming of your kingdom. Amen
News from St Andrew's
The first phase of our reordering project is complete. We now have a completely level access from the south porch into the nave, a flexible space around the font and a gentle slope leading towards the east end of the church. We have some new oak furniture - a storage cupboard for cleaning and flower arranging materials, and a table-height cupboard for hymn and service books. The new doors to the south porch are now complete. The north door restoration is also almost complete. If you walk around to the north side of the churchyard, you will see the restored door back in place. We are awaiting the replacement of the threshold.
