Remember remember the month of November


This month, as the Autumn leaves fall in the mist, brings us to all kinds if remembering, both happy and sad.

1st of November is All Saints Day. All those whose names we may not remember, who have held to their Christian faith.

2nd November is All Souls Day when we remember those we know who have died. We have had a particularly sad year with the loss of many we knew. We are remembering this time on


Sunday 4th November 4pm at St Mary's Mudford. The music will be led by the Benefice Choir and we are very pleased to welcome the Rev'd Linda Hann, the Chaplain at Yeovil District Hospital, as our preacher. Names of loved ones will be read out and candles will be lit in their memory. The service will be followed by Afternoon Tea.
