CHURCH NEWS: A big thank you to Alan Packard for an interesting sermon and well led service of Mattins last Sunday. On Sunday we welcome Licensed Reader, David Withers, who will also lead a service of Mattins. Refreshments are always served after the services which are exclusively Book of Common Prayer.

At the back of the church is a box for used postage stamps. These are then given to St Wilfred’s Hospice, It seems there is a noticeable decline in the amount they receive as people turn more and more to email. Please remember to save any that you get and bring them to church. Many thanks.
