 Our Carols Service was enhanced by the singing of the Circuit Junior Choir whose beautiful voices filled the Church. Meryl Baker played our 1902 harmonium beautifully. All enjoyed something to drink in the Old School after the Service and hot dogs were served.

The magnificent hydrangeas

 There have been violent protests over two days this week on the road just outside Bathurst on the way to Grahamstown. This meant that the contractors' staff who are working on our two projects of electrification of the old school and converting a reservoir into  a toilet station were unable to get to work. So these projects can not be completed in time for our Service this Sunday. What is so sad is that the protestors blocked the road with burning tyres and uprooted Clumber Church signage as well as telephone poles on both sides of the road and added these to the flames.

Reservoir being converted to toilets

 I am sure Clumber is making history - where in the world do you have a reservoir being converted to housing toilets? Mark Vogler is working hard to get this structure ready by the week-end when we have our monthly Service

New signage at Clumber Church

 We battled sinking holes in the Clumber shale today to support the posts necessary for the new signage which has been erected at Clumber Church. With the increased number of visitors we have experienced over the last few months, this notice board outlines the basics of the Clumber site as well as details regarding our social media.


 Sad news as we congregate at 11h00 on Saturday to honour the life of Dave Nel who passed away on Sunday evening. Our prayers of comfort go out to Anita and the family.


 The hydrangeas planted by Granville Bradfield in the 1970's along the one side of the Church are looking magnificent. Relying only on rainfall they have confounded us in this dry spell by producing large blooms in abundance.
