Parish Review Achievable Targets

        To build on the success of Easter & Christmas services within the village by personally inviting the people in the community to all special services and church based events.

        To promote community events which attract the village into the church and its environs, such as teas, churchyard cleanup, and church spring cleaning 

        To explore the church layout with a view to improving the welcome and providing some community and contemplative space
 

Weddings

No wedding in Fingest is supposed to be lucky unless the bridegroom lifts his bride over the Church gate when leaving after the ceremony. The gate is tied up with ribbon so the newly wedded couple cannot get through it, while all their relatives, friends and villagers gather round to watch the old custom being duly observed.

Candlemas

 

Hymns recorded at Valley Choral Eucharist:
All my hope on God is founded
Lord of all hopefulness
