Christmas Giving Tree Rebecca Crearer of the Suffolk Refugee Services writes 'I hope you had a lovely Christmas, and a happy New Year to you! We had a fantastic morning just before Christmas, delivering the items which your church members so kindly donated for our refugee clients.
Thank you so much to everyone involved. Many thanks for making this possible. It is the practical support that really makes the difference in people's lives. Best wishes for a happy and peaceful 2018.'
THE PROPOSED STAINED GLASS WINDOW FOR ST.FELIX
I've written before about the legacy to St.Felix of £10,000 from the late Mrs Marlene Strachan, which, under the terms of her will, can only be spent on stained glass ( and nothing else), and of how I've approached the eminent stained
glass artist Thomas Denny about making a window for us.
Mr.Denny's glass is very distinctive, and quite unlike the stained glass which most of us are familiar with. There is a jewel-like quality about it - the quality which we see in the best of the windows in our own St.John's Cathedral.
He is very keen to talk with parishioners about the commission, and is
coming here with his designs for that purpose a week on Monday, to a parish
meeting in the Hall, at 7.30pm on Monday January 29th. I do hope that as many
of you as possible will come along. It would be good for us all to do a little
preparation if possible : I expect most of you have a
Google facility - put his name in and see what comes up. There is also a short
film about his making of the Richard III windows for Leicester Cathedral on
'You-Tube' - it also shows his home and workshop in
