Over the last week, Rev’d Tim and Dawn have hosted Bishop +Zechariah and his wife Mama Christine from Sudan. We were thrilled to have them here with us for some rest and relaxation after the Lambeth Conference, and wish them every blessing now they have headed back to South Sudan. We continue to pray for them, their churches and for peace for Sudan.

Annual Parochial Church Meeting – Sunday 1st May
Exciting times ahead! On Sunday 1st May we will be holding our Annual Parochial Church Meeting, which is a time to report back to our church family about what we have done in the last year, and to elect our church wardens and PCC members for the year ahead. In preparation, we have collated a set of reports from various areas of church life for you to read ahead of the meeting. Please click the link to read the reports as a pdf.
The APCM will bookend the Sunday Service, with the election of churchwardens directly before worship commences and then the remainder of the meeting will happen following coffee in the Hall after our service. It is wonderful when we have as many members of our church community together for this meeting, so please come if you can.
