Rosedale Church Fete – 15 August 2021

Posted on . No Comments

The Church Fete held this Sunday to raise funds for the church roof appeal was blessed with dry weather which helped produce an unexpectedly high attendance from visitors and locals alike, which in turn produced over £900 for the appeal. Afternote: follow-on sales and contributions have now raised the figure to over £1000 – a splendid effort all round.

There were plant and handicraft stalls, sales of old books, a treasure trail for the children and the ever popular tombola and tea and cake stalls in the church. The crowds were entertained with some wonderful singing by a local choir, the Moorland Singers, all of which made for a traditional village fete.

Heartfelt thanks to all who helped organise the event and ran the various stalls, those who contributed tombola prizes and items for sale and to the choir for their contribution to a very pleasant and successful afternoon.

Rosedale Church Closure

  1. In view of the virulence of the pandemic and following Government advice, Rosedale PCC has voted to close the church for public worship for the time being. This includes opening the church for private prayer.
  2. Irrespective of how well we can assess and manage the risk in church, it seems entirely wrong to invite people to leave their homes to get to church when the Government’s advice is so strongly to Stay at Home.

Carols On The Green 2020

This year and in lieu of the usual carols on the green with mulled cider and mince pies held in aid of the Yorkshire Air Ambulance, Charlotte Tomlin played a medley of Christmas tunes on a wintery Christmas Eve to a small but appreciative audience in the village.

A reminder that you can donate to the Yorkshire Air Ambulance at the following link: https://www.yorkshireairambulance.org.uk/support-us/donate/ and support this vital asset to our remote community in these stressful times.

A very Happy Christmas to all our readers and best wishes for a peaceful and healthy New Year.

Rosedale Church Services

Church Services at Rosedale Church

Sunday December 20th: Morning Prayer at 9.15am.

After the service, the church will remain open for private prayer until 3pm, decorated, warm and lit, with CD carols playing and a church member in attendance.

We hope that people will feel very welcome to visit and, if they wish, to light a candle, perhaps in memory of a loved one they have lost this year or just to bring a gleam of light at this dark time.

Christmas Eve: Holy Communion of the Nativity at 10.00pm.

All are welcome. We are hoping that a mini-choir will be able to sing some carols in the service. There will be mulled wine and minced pies (served safely!) after the service.

Contact Revd David Haddon-Reece, 01751 417401, or Mrs Lorraine Dale, 417448.
