Our sincere thanks go to Derek Hiscocks for standing in for our Minister on 7th November and taking our Holy Communion Service.

As most of you will know, Mike comes to Braishfield on the first Sunday of each month to lead our Communion Service at 9.30am, before returning to Romsey for the 10.30am Service there. On this occasion as there were two baptisms due to take place at Romsey URC, Mike asked Derek if he could come to Braishfield as the time between the two services is limited and nobody ever knows how the traffic will be or if there will be any other hold-ups. I have put this in the magazine as I think there are some people in both churches who haven’t realised about this “first Sunday dash” that takes place and has done for a good number of years. I can say that all of us at Braishfield are deeply appreciative that it happens!

The Remembrance Sunday Service held at the village War Memorial was well attended. Our thanks go to Andy Bevan who took part in the service and also to David Webster who laid a wreath on behalf of our church.

Our Memorial Service on 21st November was appreciated by the congregation with many names read out by the Minister of family and friends who have died over the years. There was also an opportunity to light a candle to remember loved ones.

The December and January services and events will be reported on in the next magazine which will be out in February! Having said that, it will still be good to take a look back at these.

From us all at Braishfield United Reformed Church, we wish everyone a very happy and peaceful Christmas and best wishes for 2022.
