Sunday 15th July 2018 - Songs of Praise in Holy Rood, Coombe Keynes

The Church of the Holy Rood Wool, originated as a parochial chapel, belonging to Coombe Keynes until 1844, when Wool became a separate parish. Holy Rood, Coombe Keynes is now in the care of the Coombe Keynes Trust to whom the building belongs.

In 1384 it was decreed that Wool Chapel should be dedicated for the third time. Since then, like its Mother church at Coombe Keynes, our present church (which we know as Holy Rood, Wool) has been dedicated to Holy Rood (another name for Holy Cross). Holy Rood Coombe Keynes was made redundant 14th January 1974 and is raely if ever used for woship so it was especially good to be able to hold a service there.







Holy Rood Prayer Labyrinth

Do take a look (or even better, walk it and pray) at the new Labyrinth in the area of the churchyard extension. Grateful thanks to those who worked so hard to prepare it for us. It was cut on Weds 9th May & is now open for prayer walks.




Afternoon Tea at the Vicarage - 12th May

Revd Carol and Mark kindly hosted and catered for a superb Afternoon Tea on Saturday 12th May. Many people attended, everyone seemed to have a good time, the food was delicious and everyone ate their fill. (Also, it didn't rain!)

They collected £167 which with gift-aid will be closer to £200 and will all be given to help the Church with its fete and fundraising expenses - a very good result! Thank you both very much.







Cologne Road Community Room Update

The Community Room Committee successfully negotiated a lease with Purbeck District Council to expand the community room to provide suitable and sustainable community facilities.

This expansion into the larger room has associated costs of around £6.5k because it is not usable in its current state. Fundraising started in earnest in 2017 and we have recently had a successful bid to the Tesco ‘Bags of Help’ Scheme. This means that the project now goes to the public vote in the Dorchester Tesco store where 3 local projects compete for shoppers’ votes as they place their tokens in support of their preferred local project.

We kindly urge you to promote our project and also encourage you and anyone you know to give the Cologne Road Community Room project the vote when they shop in the store. The vote is open until the end of February. Thank you! - Chris Corteen.
