BART Women's Fellowship


At the April meeting of BART Women’s Fellowship we were due to hear Helen Cooke speaking about “The Hands of Christ”. However, on the Monday before the Thursday meeting.

Helen’s husband, Nigel, was summoned to St. Thomas’ Hospital, London for a long awaited heart operation. Helen, who had already prepared her talk, contacted Brenda Hurd who gallantly offered to read Helen’s talk. So we heard the words of Helen through Brenda’s voice.

It was a splendid liaison – and members received a fantastic, encouraging message through the co-cooperation of the dynamic duo.

Red Alert : Due to essential repair works on the roof of Ryarsh Church Hall, the next meeting of BART Women’s Fellowship has been postponed to the second Thursday of the month, and will now take place at 2.00pm in the Church Hall on Thursday, May 9th .

The speaker will be the Reverend Mark Montgomery who lives on Kings Hill, who will be speaking about “A Church without Walls”.


Does a Sunday morning not always work well for family time in church?

Then come and try:

Church Preserves

Banner 4

Last year the amount raised from selling preserves in the church was slightly down on previous years, £845, still a worthwhile sum.  Many thanks to all those who contribute in so many different  ways to the success of the venture .


For those who may be new to the village, and who may like to support us, the church is open every day and is closer than the shops if you need a jar of marmalade, jam or chutney.


Food bank box

food bank 

If you choose to donate biscuits to the food bank box in the church porch I’m sure that they will be enjoyed by the recipients, but please don’t think that someone has pinched them when they disappear.  There seems to be a mouse that likes biscuits too!  So the biscuits will be stored at Commority until there are enough other goodies in the box to take it to Margaret Ivell in Birling, who coordinates the deliveries to the Pilsdon centre.


Thursday Morning Prayer

Come and join us in bible reading and prayer for our communities, including our schools, the world, and the church at 8.30am for half an hour at St Peter & St Paul, Trottiscliffe, each Thursday morning.
