News and events

Sunday 3 November 2019 - Friends’ and Relatives’ Remembrance Service at 3.00pm. If you have a loved one who has died in 2018 or 2019 and whose name we might read in the course of this service, please have a word with the Rector.

Morning Prayer takes place in St John the Baptist Church at 08:30 to 09:00am every weekday morning. We’ve been a bit low on numbers in the early autumn, through holidays and the like, but it is a very good opportunity to encourage anybody who can to come along. This is part of the calling of our churches to pray for our nation, communities and Diocese, together with those with current needs who have asked us to pray. As a parish priest, expected to offer such prayer each day, I am deeply appreciative of those who join to be a part of this fellowship of intercession. It can be a regular day of the week, or entirely occasional: your presence is very welcome. Someone will have been rota’d to lead the liturgy that morning and nobody attending would feel uncomfortable in what is asked. If you are used to the liturgical prayer of the Church of England and can sometimes manage this half an hour in the morning, please just turn up when the opportunity arises. Books are provided.   Andrew Doye, Rector.

Parish Giving Scheme - Please support our churches by means of a regular promised contribution, if possible through the Parish Giving Scheme.
