Netherfield Church - This Sunday September 22 is a Holy Communion at Netherfield and on the last Sunday, September 29 we are having our Harvest Festival. This will be an Evensong at 6 pm. followed by a Harvest Supper in the church. We shall need to know if you are wishing to join us for this supper in order to organise the catering so please let me know as soon as possible. Thank you and we look forward to welcoming you. On Wednesday September 25 we have an event in the church. John Chater will be giving his view of life in a Parish. He was Dean of Battle and no doubt this will figure in what is promised to be an amusing and possibly enlightening, talk. We shall be having cheese and wine to accompany the talk and admission will be £7.50. in aid of church funds. Paul Smith, Churchwarden.
