Message from the Rector

Dear Friends,

 

I am writing this at the point when we were marvelling over the wonderful displays of Northern Lights over Suffolk.  It always amazes me that nature provides us with such incredible spectacles.  I must admit that over my bit of Holbrook we have quite a lot of light pollution but, even so, my husband and I stood outside marvelling in the beauty of what we were seeing over the house. 

 

In all our business, we are apt to forget that God created this wonderful world that we live in with all its colour and variety, and that we should take care of it and give it room to grow and flourish.  We are looking carefully at our churches at how we can encourage our wonderful churchyards to flourish, whilst keeping them accessible.  There are separate projects running across the Benefice, so if your churchyard looks a little longer than you expect it is worth talking to the church wardens to see what we are doing to boost local ecology.  Our Churchyards are often the last natural meadowland left in villages and are part of important green corridors.  If you are interested in helping out, it is worth contacting the church wardens to talk about how you can get involved.  Most of the churches have managed ‘clearance’ days which are advertised in the local parish magazines, from Holbrook’s monthly Eco church (all comers welcome) to Freston’s community project we have a number of opportunities to become involved.

 

In the meantime, please feel free to visit these wonderful havens of peace and tranquillity.

 

With blessings

 

Jenny
