Easter at St Lawrence

Easter walk

Easter week in St Lawrence started with a Benefice service at Whitwell church followed by a special service in the parish church at St Lawrence on Maundy Thursday when we celebrated the Last Supper.  The sun shone on Good Friday and the first Good Friday walk took place starting at St Lawrence church walking along the cliff path to intone and after a brief lunch stop on to Whitwell for a short service of contemplation.  Easter Sunday service celebrated the risen christ with a good number in the Parish church including a couple of children on holiday with their parents and grandparents.

Church Roof Fund Kicks Off
Woolverton House Church Roof Fund
Woolverton House Church Roof Fund

St Lawrence Parish church is renowned for its historic church windows and visited by numerous people during the year for this reason.


Sadly the church roof is now in need of serious repair so a fund raising event took place on St Georges day  at Woolverton House by kind invitation of Sam Twining.


People enjoyed walking round the 6 acre garden full of spring flowers and blossom and ate homemade cake with twining tea! The sum of £1,835.58 was raised on the day.


Thank you to all who came too support this event on behalf of the Parochial church council .

Angela Adams, Churchwarden
