NEWS

United Benefice Diary

Amma Sue has organised a United Benefice Diary for 2013 and 2014.  Please could anyone organising parish events, outings, or special occasions notify the vicar before finalising dates to check that there aren't other events organised elsewhere in the Benefice on the same date.

 

 

Organ

As the organ is not performing at its best it is being tuned and inspected over the next couple of weeks. This means that there will be no sung responses or Gloria at the 10.30 am Eucharist (there will be hymns); and no music at the 6.30 pm Evensong.  It is hoped that 'normal service' will be resumed as soon as possible.
