Netherfield Church – Our Family Service was taken by Father Christopher Channer and the congregation were complimentary on his theme of keeping promises. It was good to have a significant number of people attend as with holidays and the magnificent Olympics capturing our attention, it was feared we would not see many, so to those who came, thank you for taking time to join us. It was also fortunate as we were without an organist, consequently numbers and hearty singing was needed and everyone rose to the challenge.

The remaining services for August are as follows: This Sunday August 12 is a United Holy Communion for Brightling, Mountfield and Netherfield at Brightling; Sunday August 19 is a joint Holy Communion for Mountfield and Netherfield at Mountfield. The final service on Sunday August 26 is a joint Holy Communion for Mountfield and Netherfield at Netherfield. All services are at 10 am, please check here each week or on notice boards at the churches for our services. Paul Smith Church Warden.
