At St Philip and St Etheldreda there will be Holy Communion on the 1st, 2nd and 4th Sundays, with the 3rd Sunday remaining as Morning Prayer as previously. There are no changes in the pattern at St Agnes. 5th Sundays will continue to be joint benefice communions rotating between the churches - the next will be at St Philip and St Etheldrda on 30th June at 9.30 am.

ROGATION WALK Saturday May 25th. 

The previous three "Beating of the Bounds" has proved popular with both runners and walkers. It is a fabulous opportunity to join an organised and stewarded walk, in the environs of the village, on tracks, foot paths and occasionally roads around the ecclesiastical boundaries of our combined parishes.

This year the walk begins at St Martins at 10 am, reversing last year’s route, so starting by joining the Heath via the tunnel and visiting the churches in reverse order, St Agnes, by way of St Peter’s, Snailwell, St Nicholas Landwade, back to St Martin’s, all of which will be open to visit. Drinks are available at all these places and

St Peter’s is again providing some splendid food and a rest stop at the half way point.

The walk can be joined and left at any convenient point. The Newmarket Joggers who have kindly waymarked the route, will start at the same time as the walkers but will rapidly disappear into the distance! We hope more people will be encouraged to come from the wider community, so please spread the word where you can, and invite friends and family. Please register with Mark Haworth mhaworth50@hotmail.com, 07932160009, for full information and map. Also from Jan Lovegrove 01638 577292, janlovegrove@hotmail.com

Donations for lunch at St Peter’s for refreshments, and if desired for Christian Aid or the Disasters Emergency Fund for the walk.

ADVANCE NOTICE  Exning Village Fete is being held on Saturday 27th July from noon to 5pm. Once again we will be running a hot drinks and cakes stall, which in previous years has raised approximately £225 for church funds. Please let me know if you can offer any time on 27th July, perhaps to set up and clear away afterwards or an hour or two to help man the stall. Any help would be greatly appreciated. We’ll also need lots of cakes, please! If you have freezer space, maybe you could start to put one it two in there now…. Thank you for any time/cakes you can offer. We can cover your expenses if you wish. Sally Pascall
