Todwick Neighbourhood Watch Christmas message

As we are coming towards Christmas, it is vital that we are aware of what is happening around us. Be careful when shopping as purses and wallets can be easily snatched or removed from insecure bags.

Take extra care when putting Christmas presents into the boot of your car. There may be someone watching or waiting for you to go back to your shopping and then break into your car and get their presents at no cost, except to you.

Be aware: Be safe but have a merry and enjoyable Christmas.

Norman Anderson

2019 Christmas Message from Revd Vicky

Published: 30 November 2019

“Christmas is really for the children” you will have heard it said. But surely it’s a whole lot more than that. The story of a baby born in a stable is only one part of a very grown up story about why we are here, about being loved beyond measure. It’s a grown up story about holy insurrection against a cruel Roman regime and the powers throughout history that have wanted to own and control; about a child who grew up and who told people to live and love and accept differently from what was deemed acceptable at the time. It’s a story about resurrection and wonder and fullness of life, and unearned, unending love for all.

At Christmas it is the baby in the manger bit of the story. It’s time to celebrate! It’s time to chase away the darkness with feasting and lights and sparkle and gifts, to remind ourselves that the Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has never overcome it. And for Christians, and all who want to believe it, that the darkness, cold and fear of the world will not last forever either.

Be like children this Christmas, however old you are and whenever you can find a moment. Smile at the colour and the glitter and the music, make time for others, feast for a day or two, & give simple gifts that bring smiles.

Todwick Church wishes you a happy and peaceful Christmas!

If you require further information about Church events, please contact Revd Vicky on 01909 771101, or email: vicky.camber@sheffield.anglican.org

The event aimed to raise funds to help with the maintenance of our beautiful old Todwick Church that was mentioned in the Doomsday Book dated 1086!

Also, some lovely flower displays and planters, very kindly donated by various Todwick friends including Grey Matters group were on display in Todwick Church and Todwick Church Hall during the event. These were auctioned at 4 pm by Sheila Pantry and Tony Rusling to help in the fund raising. Many bargains were quickly snapped up in the bidding process. And lots of fun was generated!

Graham Wilkinson beautifully musically entertained on the Church organ during the afternoon as visitors were looking at the exhibits and the Church.

Over 120 visitors came from far and wide including many Wales High School students (including Todwick students) who also brought their families and friends to see their artwork and photography. Many parents were seriously impressed and proud to see the students’ presentations!

The event raised £393.00 for the Todwick Church maintenance funds thanks also to the two money donors who kindly gave to the event.

Many thanks to all who helped during the event – Kenneth Hill, Sandra Barker, Lynda Shepherd, Anne and Tony Rusling, Mabel Hextall, Richard Brundish and colleagues and Sheila Pantry OBE who was the organiser of the event.
