Signpost 33 (7 December)

Good afternoon,

Welcome to the latest issue of Signpost. We have finally made it to December after what seems like a very long year! Thank you for coming along with us on the journey, and for your continued feedback on our suggestions from across the internet. This week we have a fantastic selection for you; from the recent Christ the King Eucharist at St. Augustine’s Chapel, to the Blue Peter Advent Crown.

We hope you enjoy!

119 years ago this week Marconi sent first wireless transmission over 2000 miles across the Atlantic Ocean from Poldhu in Cornwall, England, to Newfoundland, Canada, 79 years ago this week the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor, while 60 years ago this week the first episode of Coronation Street was aired.


  • The last Sunday after Pentecost is the Feast of Christ the King, and our Chaplain Rod Cosh recorded the Eucharist from St Augustine's Chapel, Cote Lane. You can enjoy the service here.



  • King Edward VIII abdicated the British throne on 11th December 1936 to marry Mrs Wallis Simpson. The documentary “Abdication: A Very British Coup” sheds new light on the crisis that rocked the British monarchy. Watch the documentary here.
  • The Universal Declaration on Human Rights turns 72 this month and remains as relevant today as it was in 1948 when it was proclaimed and adopted by the United Nations General Assembly. Amnesty International has a great explanation of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights here, and you can read an illustrated version of it here.



Please get in touch through our email and let us know how we are doing.

Don't forget that our online services of worship and contributions from the Pastoral Care Team can be found at
