As the ground around our usual Easter Sunrise Service site was so waterlogged and slippery (Health and Safety hazard!) the service took place in the church instead. Instead of a bonfire, a fire basket was used.
Below are some photos from this well-attended event.
As each Church usually has only one service on a Sunday these readings are for the principal service. At some services the Psalm is not read or sung.

NEWS FROM ESCOT
Our annual church meeting duly took place on 12th March with a very small group of us present. I was re-elected as churchwarden and the PCC were re-elected en bloc with the very welcome addition of Lindsay Saunders who is now able to re-join us. We are sorry for the reason as we grieve Chris’s
St Andrew's Church, Feniton is very fortunate to have the support of the Friends of St Andrew's. the 'Friends' are an active fundraising group who support the PCC in the maintenance of the church building and the surrounding churchyard.
We formed the group in 2010. We have regular meetings with a very supportive committee.
Our fundraising is by Subscriptions and Donations and an annual fundraiser.
In the past we have had an Antiques Style Roadshow, Wedding Dress Display, Concert by The Little Unsaid, and we have had 4 Plant Sales. All of these events have been extremely successful both socially and financially.
Next year we plan to have another Plant Sale in May.
