Chancel Guild

Update December 2022

Thank you to everybody who helped decorate our churches so beautifully for Harvest Thanksgiving. How lovely it was to see so many members’ faces and to the new faces who joined us, you are so welcome! Christmas is fast approaching and in the last few years, we have decorated both Christ Church and St. Nahi’s in poinsettias in memory of our Departed Loved Ones. We would appreciate your support again this year, or perhaps you would like to donate towards the flowers in the churches at this time. We will have a list in Christ Church and St. Nahi’s of our Departed Loved Ones. (Only loved ones names will be on the list). This year, a donation of €10 per poinsettia would be greatly appreciated. You can put your donation in an envelope with names of your loved ones on the plate any Sunday or into the Parish Office before the Wednesday 14th December. Please address the envelope to the ‘Chancel Guild’. This is our only fundraiser and it helps us to decorate the churches for all the festivals during the year. We will be decorating Christ Church on Saturday 10th December at 10.00am and St Nahi’s on Saturday 17th December at 9.30am.

Update September 2022

Hello to all our Members! It’s been quite a while since we’ve been able to share news with you but finally, our churches are once again back in ‘full swing’, celebrating services, baptisms, weddings and others, including Confirmation. We would like to thank our members who have helped us out during the pandemic. ‘Usual Service’ has resumed and our flower list is getting back to normal. We are now looking for new members to join our team. The Chancel Guild is wonderful in that the skills of our senior members are constantly passed down to our new members, continuing the long tradition of proudly decorating our churches to enhance our worship. If this is something that would interest you, please come along on Saturday 1st October at 10.00am. We will be happy to answer any questions and show you what we do. No experience is necessary, just enthusiasm!
Last Christmas, we decorated our churches with poinsettias, in remembrance of our departed loved ones. This is our only fundraiser for the Chancel to help decorate the churches for all festivities throughout the year. The poinsettias looked so wonderfully festive and we would like to thank all those who supported us.
Luckily, we were able to decorate the churches for our Easter celebrations. It was also a great excuse for a coffee and a catch-up with each other and we also welcomed some new members to our team. We now set our eyes on the Harvest Festival in October, when the churches will be awash with colourful vegetables, fruits and grains, along with seasonal flowers and greenery. If you have anything suitable to decorate our churches at this time, please leave your donations into the appropriate church on Friday 30th September or the morning of Saturday 1st October.
Many thanks and keep safe.
Jasmin, Lyn and Vera
