Now that we are able to use our Church Building for regular use again we need to put in place our regular Cleaning Rota. If you are able to help with any cleaning in Church or could offer to do part of the building i.e. Vestry, Toilet, Lady Chapel, Chancel, Coffee Bar, Porch etc. please have a word with John or Paul.

You may be aware that the Tenants who were renting the Vicarage have moved out. We have been notified by Worcester Diocese that the maintenance and upkeep of the Garden now falls back on the Parish.
