Thank you

We thank Fr Alan Leeson for presiding and celebrating at this morning’s Holy Communion service and to Phil Deegan (Licensed Lay Minister) who preached for our Zoom congregation.

All Saints - Sunday 1st November

We will have our usual pattern of services in the morning. We will also be holding a series of 30 minute services in church to mark the Faithful Departed. Families and friends of those who have had a funeral between September 2019 and September 2020 have been invited to attend one of the services which begin on the hour at 4 pm, 5 pm and 6 pm.

All Souls - Monday 2nd November

There will be a service of Holy Communion at 12 noon on All Souls Day at which we will be remembering our loved ones departed, before God. There is a list at the back of church for you to add the names you wish to be remembered at this service. Please write clearly!
