Croston, Flooding

During yesterday’s floods St Michael & All Angels church was flooded, thankfully it looks like there isn’t too much damage. Today our priority has been to support the local community by providing hot drinks and food in the church as the village is still cut in two by the flooding and people are unable to get to the Sports Club where the official support centre is based.
Reverend Michael will make a full assessment tomorrow about reopening the church for services later this week, please continue to check the website for the latest information.

    Our prayers are with you for provision, dry weather, and recovery for all affected by the rains and floods. We live in Dallas, Texas USA and visited SM&AA Croston back in May 2015, since our ancestors (Laurence Almond 1713; Thomas Almond 1803; and the Norris family cr. 1750) lived in this wonderful community and worshipped at this church. Stan Hazelwood was our guide and we shared a wonderful visit. We share your grief and sadness over the occurrence of this tragedy and pray God’s peace, hope and restoration will abound. Peace and blessings to all.

    Our thoughts are very much with the people of Croston at this time. We now live in New Zealand but have fond memories of the time some 40 or so years ago when we lived in Church Street and Keith used to be a bell ringer at the church.
