ST MARYS: St Mary’s was packed last Friday as people gathered to celebrate the life of Rev Canon Will Pratt. It was a marvellous service which Will himself had planned with the expected humour and humility. Coming together as a parish in mourning for a man who dedicated 14 years of service to our community was very special and we send our love and prayers to Linda and all the family in these difficult times. We continue to celebrate the Easter season and it’s Good Shepherd Sunday. Join us for 8am Holy Communion, 10am Eucharist when we celebrate the baptism of Arthur, and at 6.30pm for Traditional Evensong.
