St Michael’s Church Great Gidding  - Special Services in September 2019

September at St Michael’s Church

September sees us welcoming our new Associate Priest, the Revd Canon Fiona Brampton

The North Leightonstone Benefice (the group of parishes which includes the Giddings) has been enlarged. Revd Mandy Flaherty has been appointed Benefice Rector (i.e. senior priest), and has been joined by the Revd Canon Fiona Brampton as Associate Priest. Fiona has also been appointed Chaplain to Little Gidding. Fiona will have the care of the parishes of Hamerton, the Giddings and Winwick.

Sunday 15th September at 11am

Come and welcome our new Vicar Revd Canon Fiona Brampton
We celebrate our Harvest Festival, and this will be the first service taken by Fiona. The service will be at 11am, and will be a service of readings and all the favourite hymns. After the service, there will be a buffet lunch at Churchside House, which will give everyone the chance of meeting Fiona and vice versa !

Everyone is very welcome to come to that lunch. However to help with the numbers for catering, it would be helpful if you could let Jane Edwards know if you are coming [tel: 293555]. There will be no charge for the lunch.

Sunday, 22nd September at 4pm 

There will be a service of Evensong at St Michael’s. At this service, there will be the formal licensing of Fiona as Associate Priest and Chaplain to Little Gidding by the Archdeacon of Huntingdon & Wisbech.  The service takes place at 4pm, and will be followed by tea at Ferrar House, Little Gidding.

Saturday 28th September at 4pm
