Many calls for volunteers on this week’s Pew Sheet. We hope you might put yourself forward to be a lesson reader for Passion Sunday, or, for the longer term, we are looking for people to join the rota for the (robed) altar party. I can speak from experience in saying that taking part in worship in this way is an interesting and rewarding role to play in the church community.
At the 10.15am Parish Eucharist at Lavenham Church this Sunday, we will mark the second Sunday in Advent. There are four Advent Sundays before Christmas and on each occasion, we light one of the four Advent Candles in the nave of the church.
This Sunday we will also welcome in baptism Joshua Nicholas James Cave, born in September to Digi & Chris, members of our church family, and pray for God’s richest blessings on them all. We welcome also their wider family and friends including Joshua’s on this special day.

… though we will not be changing our lovely windows. As noted earlier this month (see Remembrance: Monolith below), the stained glass installation Monolith by Lavenham artist and member of our congregation Jonathan D. Boast will be erected in the church tomorrow, along with some explanatory panels. this stunning work has been shown in Westminster Abbey and more recently in the cathedral in Bury St Edmunds ; we are very lucky to have it shown in our parish church. Please come and see the work while it is with us over the next week or so.
If you want to find out more about the stained glass windows in Lavenham church, Jean Guy’s excellent and thoughtful booklet, ‘Let the windows speak’, is available from the church shop.
Welcome to the new website for the parish church of St Peter and St Paul in Lavenham, Suffolk. A glorious building of cathedral-like proportions, our church mainly dates from around 1500, built at the height of Lavenham’s period of prosperity as a wool-cloth manufacturing town.
