More details, contact Ana.
 
Tuesday Morning Prayer
Whether you come regularly, or you've never been before, we hope you'll join us for our Tuesday early morning prayer at 8am for 30 minutes via Zoom. A link will be emailed out on Monday.
 
Picnic at the Rectory
To celebrate the first anniversary of my licensing as your rector, Kevin and I would like to invite everyone in the church family to a Picnic in the Rectory garden on Sunday 15th August. Sadly, due to Covid, we have to ask you to bring your own picnic - come anytime between 4 and 7pm and stay for as long as you wish.
 
Confirmation
This year's Diocesan Confirmation Service is to be held in November in Wells Cathedral. If you wish to explore confirmation, please have a word with Ana.   
 
Home Communion
With the easing of restrictions, we are hoping shortly once again to be able to offer Communion at home for those unable to get to church. If you would like to receive Communion or are aware of anyone else who would welcome this, please contact the church office.
 
Compton Dundon event planning
Please do join us for coffee and a chat about future village events, in particular the Harvest Lunch.
We will meet at Pat King's, 'Linden Lea,' Hayes Road, on Monday August 2nd at 11 a.m.  Everyone welcome.
 
August “holidays”
Has your House Group closed for the summer?  Would you like an opportunity to meet up and chat with others during this time?
If so, the “Thursday Very-Low-Key-Social” might be the place for you!
On Thursday August 5th and Thursday August 12th we’re meeting at the Mission Church car park at 6.30pm to wander off together and find somewhere for coffee (or whatever!). 
If you’re not in a House Group, and you’d just like to come along, please do.  All welcome! 
There’s not much more to say about it (after all, it is Very-Low-Key!) but if you want to know more please feel free to give me a ring.  Jill Perryman (440293)
 
Coffee Morning
You are warmly invited to our next get together for coffee and cakes at Susie Robertson's, 'Lime Tree House,' Compton Street.
This will be on Wednesday, August 4th at 11 a.m. 
You may like to bring a small contribution to be shared.  Thank you.
