Christmas Light Switch On Ringing

Tonight with the christmas lights switch on our tower captain Trevor decided it would be a good Idea to open the church for people to see how the bells ring for service and a chance to see inside our beautiful church.

It was very successful with a good number of visitors. We had wine and mince pies. Everyone seemed  delighted to have the opportunity  to view inside the church and an chance to have ago to ring the bells.

Firstly, Thank You to you all for your kind words of encouragement over setting up the site.  This week we've gained 33 subscribers so it's a good start in reaching the same readership as the Parish Mag.

I have started putting some details regarding Church Times Rotas and Officers to try and match the same content that the magazine did.  We've also had a new article about Stafford's Raspberry Jam Club.

This is the sort of content I want to try and include over the next few months, so if you or know of anyone who organises clubs or meetings please put them in touch with me.

Stafford Raspberry Jam

Hello there! My name is Cerys Lock and I run a computing event in Stafford, called a Raspberry Jam. A Raspberry Jam is based around a computer which is the size of a credit card, called the Raspberry Pi.

On the second Tuesday of each month (except August) the Raspberry Jam is held for people who have an interest in digital making or people who want to know more about the Raspberry Pi and various other boards such as Arduino. 

If this sounds like something you would be interested in, please come along to the event. We have an eventbrite page which you can use to book free tickets.
Our next meetup is on the 10th December (next Tuesday). Here is the link to book tickets:

We hope to see you there.
