Parish Lunch – May 14th

Our annual parish lunch for Christian Aid will be held this year on Sunday, 14th May after the 11am service. The usual tea and coffee will be served together with a light lunch to raise funds for Christian Aid. This event has been very well supported in the past and we hope that many parishioners will be able to join us this year again. It is our main fund raising event during Christian Aid Week. Contributions towards the lunch will be most gratefully received. Please let Traudi know if you can help in any way. Finger food like pies, sandwiches, sausages, savoury tartlets, buns, and cakes would be most welcome.

Renovation Update

Great news for the parish.  We have completed all the planned phases of work on the outside of the church.  The building is now weather and watertight – secure against the elements!  The scaffolding is now in place in the sanctuary and the conservation of the painted interior will commence on Tuesday, 18th April.  Nat Clements and his team will undertake this work.

Below are images of paint damage due to the ingress of water that will soon be restored.
