A festival fit for a Queen

The Farnham Flower Festival at St John’s Church last weekend (May 14-15) was an amazing success with beautiful displays of flowers, art, craft and poetry, live music, tea and cake, all of it to start the celebrations for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

Thanks to all who took part and also to those who worked so hard to make it happened. Here’s to next time!

Thanks to Florescence for the sponsorship!

Here are some of the displays:

Adventurers is back!

Adventurers, the club for ages 7-11, is back.

The popular club, led by Anne Boyman, has returned to St Mark’s on Tuesdays in term time from 5.30-7pm.

There are games, craft, art, stories, prayers, refreshments and a lot of fun and friendship. So, if you, or someone you know, are age 7 to 11, why not give it a try? Just turn up, or give Anne Boyman a call on 01252 724429.

Future services

We would love more people to take part in the services and here are some ways you can do so:

If you have only a telephone with no special features …

Alan can record any comments you would like to make over the phone.  Please call the Rectory (01252 820537) and arrange a time to do this. It will involve calling Alan on his mobile – and a number will be provided to do this.

If you have a smartphone/computer with camera and microphone

If you would like to record a video or sound; make something and take a picture of it; write some prose; share something you found on the web – whatever you have found that has fed you spiritually; please send it to Alan to pull it together.

Large files can be sent to Alan via https://www.filemail.com/

If you don’t know how to use the computer to do this
  1. Click on the magnifying glass at the bottom left of the screen.
  2. Search for Camera
  3. Click on the Camera App option
  4. Click on the Video button on the right hand side of the screen so that it is white.
  5. Click on it again to start videoing
  6. Click the red square to stop videoing.
  7. Open File Explorer and then Camera Roll – you should find the video you have recorded there.
  8. Use FileMailTransferXL or PCloud (works better on mobiles) to select a video and send it to Alan.
Using a mobile/tablet
  1. Record the video – turn your device to landscape mode – it gives a bigger picture.
  2. Use PCloud to select the video and send it to Alan.

Alan looks forward to receiving lots of contributions: revd.alan@badshotleaandhale.org
