Rudby Parish Magazine: December 1892

More from the old magazines.  Interesting to see the difference between the report of Harvest Festival and the announcements for the Christmas services – quite clear which was the most enthusiastically attended!

Oct 30 ..... £1 9s. 7d.
Nov 6 ..... 7s. 5½d.
Nov 13 ..... 18s. 10½d.
Nov 20 ..... 19s. 9d.

There is a Service in the Church at East Rounton on Sundays at 2.30pm.

A Service is held on alternate Sundays at 2.30pm.

The Archbishop of York will hold a Confirmation at All Saints' in the spring.  The date will not be fixed until after Christmas.

Our early Celebration of the Holy Communion on Christmas morning is to be omitted this year.  Any members of the Church who will assist with the decorations on Friday and Saturday, the 23rd and 24th, will be very welcome.

Our Harvest Festival was held on the 27th October.  The early Celebration at 7 o'clock was well attended.  At Evensong the Church was well filled, and the Service will remain long in the memories of the many who took part in it.  The very beautiful and impressive Sermon of the Rev. C. U. Gray, of Helmsley, touched all hearts.

We unfortunately had a stormy night for the Concert kindly given by Mrs Brigham and her friends on November 4th, for the benefit of the Cottage Hospital.  However, the School House was well filled, and we were all much entertained by the play, "A Perfect Cure," and the songs and music which followed.
