I have just paid my first visit to your very interesting website. I found it very easy to navigate, and was surprised at the wealth of information, useful for local people and outsiders. The history is very interesting, I also enjoyed the pictures and slideshows.

Thanks, I will return.

Pauline and Jean can I congratulate you both on a fantastic website. It's bright, fresh, uncluttered and very readable. I will ask around if anyone has any Clippesby photos in their archives for you.

Pauline, I was just looking at the website of the church. A photo of some clumps of mayweed and a wonderful sky is breath-taking. The historical photos and the way the whole thing is so artistically presented. It's PERFECT. Please have immense admiration for yourself!

Jean ,

Thank you for sending me the link to Clippesby Church and countryside .I spent a long time this afternoon looking at all those marvellous pictures thoroughly . Simply perfect !! I expect all this was done thanks to efficient teamwork but you’ll have to tell me more about your own contribution to it all .Of course what I liked best were the images of the Christmas choir by candlelight . I could feel such warmth and friendliness on everybody’s faces . and what a cake !!!

I also did like all the beautiful pictures of the churchyard , of wild life . All the explanations concerning wild life , architectural and historical data are really well done . I didn’t know that the stained –glass windows were that old and I was amazed at the quality of these pictures . . .

. . . .  once more Congratulations on your excellent site which I’ll treasure on my computer.

I love your website.  We have visited St. Peter's in the past but not for some time now.  I think another visit is called for.

An absolutely beautiful treatment of the Baptism window ("Suffer little children") by my aunt, M.E.Aldrich Rope.

Inspired! Thank you. I loved the Fantasia, too!

I have just viewed Paulines garden video showing the miracles of bloom throughout the year. Absolutely stunning.. Also not finding it easy to get out to church at moment. It is inspirational to read Thoughts.

How blessed we are.  Thanks for all your effort and talent.

May I say how much I've always enjoyed dipping in here. Not only did I love reading the extract from Jimmy Leggett's book - so evocative - but I am enjoying reading the transcript of the sermon on Wheat and Weeds ... very timely! I always think of Clippesby being such a small place but boy oh boy you Clippesby people have a big Heart there. To me, your beautiful vibrant website reflects how Love and being in harmony with your surroundings, loving your land and its Life in all its forms, becomes a work - a Way - of living poetry. My thanks for the inspiration you provide and sustain.

The present vacancy means that all enquiries are dealt with by the churchwardens in the first instance; they are responsible for arranging services and keeping the life of the church going .
