This year’s theme is “Perspectives on the pandemic: global, local, personal”, and the speakers include: - Rt Rev Dr Michael Beasley, Bishop of Hertford and former epidemiologist; - Rev Canon Will Hughes Acting Archdeacon of the Meon - Professor Maggie Rae, President of the UK Faculty of Public Health; - Very Rev Nick Papadopulos, Dean of Salisbury; and - Dawn Champion, British Pilgrimage Trust

Following the Prime Minister's announcement of an easing of the national lockdown, we are delighted to be able to let you know that from Sunday 14th March the church will be open for private prayer and public worship.
