Fishermen of Paull

On SaVftP_Paull_Fishermen_1-front_coverturday 10th August 2013 Mr Colin Screeton kindly presented the church with CD copies of stories told by the two last remaining fishermen of Paull, these recordings were made in 1985.  The voices are Mr Sam Pickering and Fred Gorbutt.

Members of the above families were present and village people came along with photographs, it was a great nostalgic afternoon. Volunteers of the church would like to thank Colin and his friends for sharing their thoughts and memories. ” It is good to think we have a record of what those days were like and what the culture of the village was years ago”.

The CD’s are fascinating to listen to, any one can pop along to the church you are most welcome to hear them.

The coffee shop within the church is open March to October 2 till 4p pm every Saturday and Sunday, we have the best ever homemade cakes and a toilet facility or if you would like to bring a group to listen to the CD recordings we can open the church for you

Garden Party News

Our sincere thanks go to Graham and Sara Shaw for being such fantastic hosts for the Garden Party on July 13th.

What a great success, the mouth-watering strawberry tea’s and home-made cakes were yummy and everyone was given a really warm welcome, the garden looked nice and stalls inviting

The day was all about generous giving and we would like to thank you all for doing just that.  The time, effort and help that people gave was very much appreciated and encouraging.

About £1000 a month is needed to keep your church open,  in good repair and there for you when you need it most, it is the responsibility of the community of Paull to work together and support events,  we would like to thank those who did come along on Saturday it was great to see you

Once again many thanks to  our hosts for such a lovely day in the sunshine, the funds raised was a real bonus

New South Door for the Church

New South Door for the church

The PCC has worked hard to secure funding for a new South Door.

The old door was in a state of bad repair, rotten and let lots of draft in – in the winter months

We would like to thank all those who have supported our fundraising events, used the coffee shop within the church, given donations or grants, it is very much appreciated.

The new door is now in place and looks fantastic, the light oak finish complements the main north door entrance.

Come and see how good it looks for yourself, the coffee shop within the church is open every Saturday and Sunday 2 till 4pm, March to October, you will receive a warm welcome and there is lots of yummy home baking to sample along with a great cup of tea or coffee.

New Porch for the Church

Great news for the congregation and friends of the church of St Andrew.  We have secured the funding through fundraising and grants for the installation of the new glass lobby within the main north door entrance.

Work will begin towards the end of January and the lobby should be finished for the opening of the “Riverside coffee shop” within the church on the 25th March 2012.

We hope this addition will help keep our heating bills down: fuel for heating is very expensive for this large building and eats up a great deal of our income. It will also promote a more welcoming entrance with an open door approach and create a warm atmosphere for those wishing to spend time in the church whether for worship, pleasure, refreshments or learning about their heritage.

We wish to thanks all those who have supported the church events throughout 2011, all those who have helped promote the church as a community building and those who have given generous grants or contributions for such schemes to succeed.  We would like to thank (defra) “LEADER” Coast, Wolds, Wetlands & Waterways (The European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development Europe, investing in rural areas, supported by Yorkshire Forward the region’s development agency) for their continual support with funding. Without their support it would be hard for the building to survive in today’s society and also meet the social needs of the wider community.

Thank you to those who give their time freely and do so much volunteer work for the good of others.

May God bless those involved and those who support the work of the church family, give them the strength to carry on and encourage them to share faith and love with others and in the community.
