St Petrox Church celebrates Advent
The Revd Will Hazlewood reports:
Dartmouth Churches were candlelit and had a Fayre too!
Despite stiff competition from other events, the parish
Christmas Fayre in St Saviour's Church last Saturday was a
great success, raising over £1,200 for parish funds.
Thank you to everyone who helped and supported us.
On Sunday the beginning of
Advent was celebrated at St Petrox Church with the a capella
group, Sine Nomine. Over 100 people braved the mist
and rain on Sunday evening to listen to, and join in with,
some wonderful Advent carols, sung in the beautiful setting
of a candlelit St Petrox Church.
On Sunday 30 December St Petrox
Church will be candlelit again as we welcome 2013 with a New
Year Carol Service at 5pm. All are welcome at our
services (don't forget to bring a torch to this one though!)
not come down for the weekend, or even a week?
Millions tonight !
Director: Danny Boyle : Actors:
Alex Etel, James Nesbitt, Lewis McGibbon : 98 minutes :
Cert. 12A. Comedy/Crime/Drama
Director Danny Boyle revisits the theme of greed in this
heartfelt, emotionally delicate comedy drama. Millions opens
with recent widower Ronnie moving with his two young sons to
the suburbs. Missing his mother and his old neighbourhood, 7
year old Damian builds a cardboard-box fort, where one day
his placid introvert existence is literally crushed by a
giant bag full of thousands of pounds' worth of cash. Prone
to visions of saints, he's convinced it's a gift from God,
but with Britain about to switch to the Euro, his
worldly-wise nine-year-old brother Anthony knows they'll
have to use it or lose it. His conscience getting in the way
of his spending, Damian debates the ethics of his ill-gotten
gains with a handful of imaginary saints, and begins to try
to spend his cash a little more altruistically. But his
charitable deeds inadvertently attract the attention of a
mysterious, threatening man who's desperate to get his hands
on the money….
This film is on tonight. Films are screened at The
Guildhall, Victoria Road, Dartmouth. The bar is open from
7.00pm and the films start at 7.30pm Guest tickets are
