1914: July: Parish Magazine

Vicar: Arthur Napier

There is not much news to put on record this month, with the exception of a visit from the Rev. T. Russell-Wright, who conducted the Services on Trinity Sunday in my absence, and whose ministrations, from all that I can hear, were very much appreciated.

We are at last able to get back to our routine of Day School and Sunday School Afternoon Services, which have been so much broken in upon (by chicken-pox) of late. July 5th will be kept as “Flower Sunday”, and for convenience of taking the flowers to the Vicarage, will be held in the New Church. The flowers will be sent to the sick people in the East London parish of Horsleydown; and the Church collection for sending the poor children to the seaside will be made on the last Sunday of the month, viz., July 26th.

Our June collection for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals amounted to £2 3s. 8d.

The Dedication Festival of our Church will be held on Sunday, July 26th. The proper day (St. James’ Day) is Saturday, July 25th, but for convenience we will observe it on the day following.
