Sunday Parish Eucharist.
The PCC recognises that our Eucharist on Sundays has not yet returned to the way it was before COVID – for example, incense and acolytes. These have not restarted because we do not have enough people who have volunteered to be on the rota. If you are interested in organising this or volunteering, please get in touch with Jane or Prem.
Please note that as from Sunday we will be re-opening Kids church at 10am. All young disciples welcome
Bring and share lunch – Sunday 11th September
Celebration event / bring and share lunch – September 11th
