from the vicar . . . Firewalk in aid of Churchyard funds On May 6th 10 volunteers achieved what most people would think would be impossible – walking on hot embers. They were being sponsored in aid of the Churchyard Fund. As well as raising around £1500 towards the maintenance and upkeep of the churchyard, they also benefitted from the experience of achieving the ‘impossible’. The training, generously donated by Jon and Steve of www.firewalk.co.uk, taught how to focus your mind on your objective and put aside negative or self-doubting thoughts. Jodie has kindly produced a video which you can see at; https://vimeo.com/216500719 on the button We are very sorry that it is no longer possible to produce the hard copy of On The Button. This has been a great help to us and to many organisations in Arlesey in being a verhicle of excellent news, reporting and information for the village. We’re delighted that the electronic version will continue to be produced and we express our heartfelt thanks to Steve and all who have helped produce and circulate the paper version. Weddings at St Peter’s If you’re planning on getting married you might like to think about being married at St Peter’s church. You don’t need to be a regular church attender, and even if you don’t live in the parish, you may be able to be married in this historic and beautiful church if you have a ‘qualifying connection’ (for example have lived in the parish, have attended the church, or parents/grandparents married in the church; for full list see; http://qrs. onl/dygatu). The marriage of people who have been divorced is also possible at St Peter’s, subject to a few conditions. The advantages of a Church wedding include, of course, the spiritual atmosphere, the inclusion of prayers and hymns and the relationship you build up with the Vicar during the preparation sessions held during the months beforehand. The church can easily accommodate 150 people and the building and churchyard provide a unique and beautiful setting for photographs after the ceremony. Please contact me for further details.
