Coffee Morning

The coffee morning this month will be in the village hall on
Thursday November 5th from 10.30am until 12.00pm and will coincide with the visit of the County Library van. It is always a friendly and informal event with a good number of people attending. As usual there will be a jig- saw exchange stall.

Freda and Gloria are always very grateful for any unwanted jigsaws.


The Harverst Supper

This was held in the Village Hall on 2nd October. An enjoyable hot three course meal was very well received. Our thanks must go to Betty Sutton who supplied and ran the raffle and to Barbara and Jane who manned ther bar and who generously donated all the bar profits to the church. Finally, Gloria thanks the comittee and everyone who helped for all their hard work, preparing, cooking and serving. A final profit of £493 was raised for church funds.


The Harvest Service

Held on the Sunday morning after the Harvest Supper on Friday evening, a thanksgiving service was led by Revd. John Bentham; the Area Dean and was enjoyed by a representative congregation. The traditional hymns were sung and the choir performed a lively harvest anthem. There were many gifts of produce and tins of groceries which had been generously donated by people from the village. All the gifts were later taken to the Friary Drop in Centre in West Bridgford.


Village Carol Singing

On Tuesday 15th December between 7 and 9pm

There will be Carol singing in the Village Hall for anyone in the village or their friends and family who would like to join us to raise money for the N.S.P.C.C. The bar will be open to sell mulled wine, tea and coffee, wine and spirits as well as soft drinks and there will also be seasonal refreshments.

At intervals during the evening a choir will lead the singing of some well known carols and Christmas songs and of course there will be copies of the words so that everyone can join in.

For many years Rempstone has raised money at Christmas for this charity whose work helps some of the most disadvantaged children in our society. Please come and help us to support them and at the same time enjoy a drink and a chat with neighbours.

Please let Carol Hunter (880259) or Lesley Jebson (880477) know if you need a lift to the Hall and we shall try and arrange it for you.


Children's Christmas party

This will be held in the Village Hall on Sunday December 13th at 3pm. More details closer to the event.


Finally, we would love to have more ideas for events. Please give us your ideas for next year. We hope to have the boys choir in the summer singing in church.



The weekly bell ringing practice will be on Wednesday from
7.30pm until 9.00pm. Please be aware that Bell Ringing Practice is not every week at present as we are very short of ringers. If you would like to come and learn, please ring John Cooper on 853572 beforehand to find out when the next practice is being held.

Page from the Past 

Former Rector Remembered




In the middle of World War 11 the Revd Harold Curling Dunn was appointed incumbent to the village of Rempstone in 1943.


He had moved from Northill where he had looked after and been very kind to a number of Second World War evacuees.  The correspondent, Laurie Galkin, writes in detail of the daily life of an evacuee child during this difficult period.


If you would like to read the whole account, please contact Bill Buchanan on 01509 820710











Matter of Life and Debt


If you or somebody you know is anxious about money matters specialist guidance is available  through national and local organisations.  Details have been compiled by the Southwell Diocese and can be viewed by clicking here.





Child Protection Policy



Details of the revised child protection policy agreed by  the PCC of All Saints Church, Rempstone and the other churches in the United Benefice have now been published.


A copy of the revised and updated policy can been seen in church and it will also  be given to all youth workers, volunteers and employees who have responsibility for children and young people.  The independent person who children, youth workers and volunteers may talk to if they wish about any concern is Pam Peacock on 01509 853397.


The policy statement will be reviewed annually and it will be monitored by Doris Elcock the nominated Child Protection Named Person. She may be contacted on 01509 852778.




Book of Remembrance 


The Rempstone Church Book of Remembrance has recently been updated to the beginning of 2011.  It can be found in the glazed cabinet to the left of the main door of the Church.


All the dates and names in this book are taken from the Church's Register of Burials and give the date on which the interment or the burial of the ashes took place.  The actual date of death is not recorded in this book.  Sometimes ashes are not interred in the church yard and therefore the name will not be in the register.



Rempstone On Line


Aside from this web site, there is  a further web site which contains an excellent account of the two Rempstone churches.

It is: The site is constantly being extended to provide additional information on the whole group of Southwell Churches and gives clear pictures as well as fascinating details of bells, furniture, organs, etc.
