LATEST NEWS AND DATES FOR YOUR DIARY
ANNUAL PAROCHIAL CHURCH MEETING ON SUNDAY 15TH MAY
Our APCM will take place on Sunday 15th May following our 10am Eucharist Service at 11.30am. The meeting will take about one hour and refreshments will be available.
All those whose names appear on the Electoral Roll can attend and be nominated for election to the PCC. Nomination forms are at the back of church on the table.
Our youth group for young people aged 11-16 has got off to a great start. If you have any young people in this age group amongst your family and friends, please pass on an invitation to join us for games, conversation and free refreshments at Church House, Fridays 4pm-6pm.
We will be running an informal and relaxed seven-week course. It is a free course that gives you the time and space to think about the big questions of life and the life of the person at the heart of the Christian faith, Jesus Christ. It works through Mark's Gospel, one of the life stories of Jesus found in the Bible. You don't need to know anything about the Bible and you won't be asked to pray or sing. You can ask any question you like or you can just sit and listen.
This is a great opportunity to make new friends whilst finding out who Jesus is, why he came and what it means to follow him.
Start Date: 17th May at 7.00pm in Church House

We are now recording our Sunday morning 10.00am Eucharist Services from Church. Live streaming Video can be watched via our website once loaded and watched at any time thereafter. The 10.00 Service will be a full choral service with music and recordings taken from our own choir's extensive output as well as inclusion of music for you to join in with.
Keep in touch
If, at any time, you are a member of any group that has been instructed to self-isolate, you must do so for the good of our whole community. We will endeavour to be in contact with every church member to check that we are in touch with one another, so that help can be asked for and given, and so that we can maintain, as much as possible, our fellowship together. The weekly notice sheet will be sent to all members by email on Saturdays before the service the next day (or through the letterbox for those not on email).
Please note that the Parish Office opening hours are 10.30am to 1pm Tuesday-Friday.
