Books in Farnham Parish Church

It is is always good to put something back.

A week ago I was at a church fete at Farnham Parish Church, teddy bears parachuting off the church tower and various other activities. I thought would it not be a good idea to do what I had in mind for Godalming Parish Church, only I lacked the books.

Hence my return trip on Saturday, though not a very pleasant day, cold, wet, heavy rain and hailstones.

I made the mistake of dropping in at the Mulberry. I was met by football blasting out, then pop music. A second mistake was to order the food. A long wait and it was not worth the wait. Knife and fork were brought as an afterthought. I was then stuck there due to heavy rain.

Eventually I made my way to the Parish Church, only to get caught in the rain, then to find there was a wedding. I wandered off, came back, only to find there was a second wedding.

The verger said pop back. I wandered off, only this time to get caught in a hailstorm! I got back to church bells ringing, me cold and wet.

But, we are always delayed for a reason. It was dark outside and therefore I was able to see the interior of the church all lit up.

I lit a candle for my lovely friend Sian who sadly is slowly going mad and and another for Paulo Coelho as thanks for writing Aleph. Prayer cards were also filled out.

Two books were left: The Alchemist and The Shack. Both books I have registered as BookCrossing books.

On leaving I thanked the verger for keping the church open for me.

Farnham is a small market town on the banks of the River Wey, at the far end of the Hog’s Back to Guildford. It is where the North Downs Way starts.
