Dear EFP church folk,
Happy Christmas Eve. The strangest of Christmases is nearly here. 
I hope that whatever Christmas Day will look like for you, yours is a joyful and peaceful Christmas, as we celebrate the day from which the world would always have Hope.

Some sad news
Iris Gwernan-Jones (Ruth’s mother-in-law) died last week, aged 96.
She became a much loved member of the Feniton congregation since moving to the Gittisham care home. She will be deeply missed.
A note from Ruth and Alun and the family is attached (HERE). This includes information about her funeral in the New Year.
Take care, stay well, and have a happy Christmas.
