NEWS

Parochial Church Council  -  URGENT

At the Vestry and Annual meetings held on Sunday 16 March, Graham and Jim resigned as Churchwardens and Stewart resigned as Treasurer.  Unfortunately, no-one has yet been willing to come forward to take their places and we now find ourselves in desperate and urgent need of volunteers.  To give more time to try to resolve this, they have agreed to continue in post on a strictly temporary basis, pending another meeting:

Extraordinary Vestry Meeting, Sunday 13 April

after morning service

Everyone on the electoral roll is very welcome to attend.  Please speak to Amma Sue, Graham, Jim or Stewart if you feel able to help in any way, including taking on shared responsibility for some of the tasks.

 

Lent group "No Tame Lion" a Lent course based on the writings of C S Lewis - 2 and 9 April at St Mary's Court Community Room 7.00 - 9.00 pm.
