Church News :-


Getting ready for Christmas already !? - Normally, it seems all wrong when someone starts getting ready for Christmas way too early and the tinsel in the shops begins in September, but this year the Whitton churches will be starting the run-up to Christmas even earlier! The Faith Journey of the Old Testament :- September to December 2017 Services


New Friday 10th November 2017 - There will be an evening event about Sir Isaac Newton and his connection with Baydon, from 7.30pm in the school hall. Proceeds of the event will go to the Baydon church fund raising appeal. Click here for full details


Living Nativity - we will be hosting a living nativity in Aldbourne on 16th December, and would love as many people as possible to be part of it, please click here for full details


Parish Churches of Wiltshire: A Guide, by Brian J Woodruffe. This fascinating book containing hundreds of beautiful photographs is available for sale at only 10 each. Proceeds will be split between Baydon St Nicholas (in aid of desperately needed roof repairs) and the Wiltshire Historic Churches Trust. Please see main page for full details


St Nicholas Church repairs - We have had another quote for 11,013.90 for the Vestry roof and additional stonework repairs where the stone fabric of the building has become friable. As at 3rd March 2017 we had 2,988 in the building fund, so we still have a lot of money to raise. Many of you have already donated for which we thank you, but if you are thinking about it, but have not got around to it, this is a little prompt. Or if you would consider becoming a Steward of St Nicholas church by committing to a regular donation by standing order of perhaps 10 per month, but 5 or 3 that would really help too. If you are in a position to Gift Aid it, your donation would increase by 25%. The standing order and Gift Aid forms are in the church or please get in touch with one of the Church Wardens Margaret Hill 540789 and Mike Ball 540117 or any other church member you know

We are still looking for someone to work with LCC (Local Church Council) but only on the church building repairs. Are you or do you know someone who loves old buildings and has the enthusiasm and some building knowledge to manage the works that need doing ? Contact a church warden as above
