Learning Together

Faith, Hope and Love - the York course.
Once again, an apology for a changed date. A very important
meeting of the Team Council has had to be moved to Tuesday 12th May, one of the dates we had planned for the course on faith, hope and love. Because of this, session 4 of the course will now take place on Tuesday 19th May, and session 5 on Tuesday 2nd June – both, as usual, in the Hall at Haverthwaite at 7.30 pm.

Worship Matters

Further to my note last month, there will be a simple said
Communion service on Monday 1st June at Finsthwaite at 7.30 pm, in the course of which there will be an extended time of intercessory prayer.
This is the opportunity we have been looking for to use in a meaningful way the messages left on our notice boards. As St Peter's is the only church kept open most of the time, it seems appropriate to hold the first of these services there, as a good number of prayer requests are left in church. Naturally, all are invited to the service, which it is hoped will be the first in a regular series.


Looking ahead to the Feast of Pentecost [Sunday 31st May] there will be a service for all the parishes of the Cartmel team and our benefice at the Priory at 10.30 am. This will not only be the sung Communion of Pentecost, but also a Confirmation service. If anyone is interested in confirmation, this is a good opportunity to come forward – there may not be another confirmation in this area for a while. Some of the preparation could be undertaken with adults in other parishes, which helps to broaden everyone's understanding by sharing experiences.

Road Safety

Churchyard/Cemetery Regulations

Parking at Haverthwaite Cemetery Gates

We are told that cars parked on the road at Haverthwaite by the cemetery gates are considered to be a possible traffic hazard.
May we ask that, whenever possible, people visiting the cemetery should park somewhere along Old Barrow Road opposite, please?

Thank you for your co-operation in making visits to the cemetery safer.
Haverthwaite PCC

All churches are bound by the Diocesan regulations which are designed, with much experience, to ensure that the resting place of our loved ones looks suitably peaceful and as cared for as possible.
Maintaining churchyards to these standards is not easy, but we do our best. Volunteer labour is scarce and paid labour has to be paid for by us! Please help us to achieve what we are attempting.
Remember the regulations forbid the planting of flowers or bushes and, please, no jam jars. Artificial flowers are not allowed except for the poppies on Remembrance Day wreathes.
Christmas and Easter wreathes should contain no artificial flowers, and all wreathes should be removed within four weeks.
