Occupied by soldiers

A missionary meeting in Wargrave had to be held in the church as the only parish hall was being used by the army.

Annual S.P.G. Meeting: Wednesday, December 13th, 7 p.m, in the Parish Church.

We are very fortunate in having secured the kind help of Bishop Mounsey. He has resigned the difficult Diocese of Labuan and Sarawak and, at the moment, is taking charge of Shiplake, while the Vicar is serving as a Naval Chaplain.

The meeting will be held in the Church, because there is no other building large enough now that Woodclyffe Hall is occupied by soldiers. But it will be a meeting, not a service. The Nave of the Church is a perfectly suitable place for such a gathering. It is our Father’s House and we shall be about our Father’s business.
