Some changes to the standard Sunday Service pattern from February onwards


From February there will be two changes to the standard Sunday Service pattern that operates outside Festival periods.


1) The 11.15am Traditional language (BCP) Communion Service will move to the third Sunday of the month and will begin at the slightly later time of 11.30am. The service will be a little shorter than it has been in the past.


2) The 4 O'clock Service at Stubbings which was launched in the latter part of 2018 will happen fortnightly on the second and fourth Sundays of the month.

A Thank You


Keith and Pam would like to thank everyone who sent them cards this Christmas, we very much enjoyed opening and reading them.
