EVENTS, SERVICES and NEWS from ARRINGTON
On the third Thursday of the month we hold an informal Eucharist in the Clifton Close Community Rooms at 10.30am. The Rooms are of course mobility accessible.
The dates for the next few months in 2017 are:-
The spire at St Nicholas
The spire of St Nicholas was built by John Wratworth in 1750. Ten years ago we had temporary repairs carried out on the lead work but last year saw a serious slippage of the lead panels which will mean work being carried out on them. We have just been awarded a 100% grant to cover costs of these repairs from the Government's Listed buildings of Worship Scheme - Roofing fund. Further details will soon start appearing in the conservation section of these pages.
Arrington may be very small but we believe in helping others not so fortunate as ourselves. We do this through special collections and purchasing items from specific charities.
Who we supported in 2016
Our 2016 Harvest Supper in October and the Harvest Festival the following Sunday supported Royston Food Bank and.
Our Christmas support in 2015 was for Christians against Poverty and The East Anglia Air Ambulance.
St Nicholas Arrington also supports Fair-Trade and our coffee (instant and ground), tea and sugar all use Fair-Trade sources.
Help getting up to the Church
Cambridgeshire like Lincolnshire maybe thought of as being totally flat but the path from the edge of the highway up to the church is a 1 in 4 climb. This is then not in anyway flat at all. This year our celebration of St Nicholas meant we were able to attract giving from the congregation to help with the installation of a handrail from the church gate and some lighting to mark the pathway. Hopefully this will make people feel more secure as they walk down from the church as well as helping those walking up to the church.
