15th October 2016: Parish Meal
October 2016 saw the return of the Black & White Parish Meal. Many members of the parish attended and enjoyed a four course meal, wine and entertainment provided by our very own girl group 'The Cecelias' and the House Band 'The Under Rehearsed' who sang hits from then band Madness and The Jam. A special version of the song 'Our House' called 'Our Church' was sung (several times!) by the band to commemorate the wonderful year the parish has had. Thank you to everyone for supporting the Parish Dinner, especially all who helped to make this such a great evening. We raised the magnificent sum of £778.50!

Our Church (with apologies to Madness… and Father Frank… and anyone else mentioned in this song… and anyone who’s upset that they’re not mentioned.)
Sandra wears her Sunday best
Father’s tired, he needs a rest,
His sermon took all night again,
Maureen’s selling Christmas treats (Ho ho ho!)
Stefan’s got a judge to beat, he can’t hang around.

Our church, in the middle of our street,
Our church, in the middle of our…

Our church it has a crowd
There’s always raffles happening
and the music gets quite loud.
Deacon Joe is so church-proud,
Parish Council never slows him down
and dissent is not allowed!

Our church, in the middle of our street,
Our church, in the middle of our…

Our church, in the middle of our street,
Our church, in the middle of our…

(Father tells you that you’ve got to kneel and pray a bit)

Dominic tells another joke
Groans are heard from all the folk,
Teresa hangs her head in shame.
Judith bakes another cake (Yum yum yum!)
We’re the church that likes to give in lots of ways
(Instrumental verse)

Our church, in the middle of our street,
Our church, in the middle of our…


We remember way back when the church was just a hut
and then
Someone said let’s get a big loan build a new church,
Such a lovely church!
We all worked hard to pay the debt
And this July we won’t forget
The special day, the moment for which we’d waited:
It’s consecrated!

Sandra wears her Sunday best
Father’s tired, he needs a rest,
His sermon took all night again,
Maureen’s selling Christmas treats (Ho ho ho!)
Stefan’s got a judge to beat, he can’t hang around.

God’s house, in the middle of our street,
God’s house, in the middle of our…


Our church, where we pray and where we eat,
Our church, in the middle of our…

Our church, where the music’s such a treat!
God’s house, in the middle of our street.
