The Latest News From Around Capel

weekly news for Sunday 31 July 2022

Dear friends,

It’s been a busy week, gradually getting our house ready for our move on 1 September. Having spent 25 years here and moving to a smaller property there are some difficult decisions to take on which possessions to hold on to and which to let go of, but each day I find that I feel lighter without all these things in my life.

The charity shops however are groaning with our possessions! I think they now see me coming and a couple of times have told me that they can’t accept anymore contributions. If you too have been faced by this conundrum can I just give a quick plug for the Revive and Re-use shop based at the Leatherhead tip, they are happy to take things that are worthy of charity shops including some clothes, the staff are really helpful and will immediately tell you whether it is better to recycle it or donate it to their shop.

This weeks services are as follows:
9.30am Matins Ockley
10.30am Family communion Capel
3-5pm Church teas Capel

Please join me in welcoming Rose Dowling into our church family, she is to be baptised at 12.15pm tomorrow at Capel. We wish her and her family a happy day.

Alan Smallwood has just pointed out that Buckland Lakes is having a family fun weekend this weekend. If you need further details please go to:

Lastly, this week’s photo of the week is a very dry and dusty view of the Surrey Hills taken from Abinger Roughs – my goodness we need some rain!

With love and prayers
