Archdeacon Martin Lloyd Williams officiated at the service which had been long-awaited by a number of the regular worshippers in Ringmer. It was also an opportunity to celebrate the forthcoming Diamond Wedding Anniversaries of three couples who have each had long associations with the church, serving as church wardens and singing in the choir being just two connections.
Four of the eight bells were rung just before the service and people of the village have remarked how lovely it has been to hear the bells again.
Services will now continue in a regular pattern of First Sunday - All Age Service and Third Sunday - Parish Eucharist - both at 10am and with online worship or meditations on the second and fourth Sundays. Please take a look at our website for details of the services going forward. www.ringmerchurch.org.uk
