Thank you Ian

Last week we said thank you and farewell to Rev Ian Houghton after ten years as the vicar of Leake and our group of churches. We wished him and Mel all the best on a gorgeous summer evening. Ian also celebrated Holy Communion for us on the 35th anniversary of his ordination.


Congratulations to Becky and Darren

Many congratulations to Becky and Darren, who were married at Leake today in glorious sunshine. We have loved getting to know them over the last year.


Open The Book

Our regular series of “Open the Book” sessions at Knayton School continue
to be enjoyed by all the children. Each time we take a simple Bible story
as our theme. This time our theme was “Happy Day”.


Thank you Peter

We very grateful to Peter Sotheran who spoke at our recent Lent Supper
about the work that his group had done to combat AIDS in Africa. We enjoyed
excellent food and fellowship with one another.


The Last Supper at Knayton School

Our church regularly visits Knayton school, where we dramatise Bible
stories in a session know as “Open the Book”. This week, we had reached the
Last Supper, though the wine was replaced with Ribena!


Leake in the snow

A big thank you to Richard Gladstone, who visited Leake this morning and
sent us this lovely picture of the church in the snow.


Remembrance Sunday

Thank you to all who made Remembrance Sunday such a moving occasion. The
service was attended by many people from our villages. The last post was
played by a bugler and we sang a range of remembrance hymns.


Concert

A great time was had by all, listening to a concert by the Stockton
Synthonia Male Voice Choir.


Harvest at Leake

We were delighted to have a full church for our Harvest Festival, which was
followed by a slap up Harvest Supper. Food was donated to the food bank and
money was raised for the Farm Community Network. The church was beautifully
decorated.
