Despite the weather, we had a lovely day out at Hinton Ampner yesterday, enjoying the wonderful Christmas decorations and having fun trying to solve the murder mystery! Thank you, Carol, for organising the day.
Today we welcomed brother and sister Jack and Sophia Lawton for their baptism service. It was wonderful to see the church full to overflowing with all their family and friends who had come along to support them.
