Relatives’ and Friends’ Remembrance Service – Sunday 7 November 2021

This is a gentle service of remembrance, open to all, in which we shall honour and recall our loved ones who have died since the beginning of 2019. This longer period reflects that we were unable to hold this much-loved service last year. There will be hymns, prayers and the lighting of candles.

Do please contact the Rector now if there is any family member or friend whose name you would like included, and if you would like to attend the Service.  It is entirely fitting to remember people from further afield if you yourself live more locally and are able to attend.

Iona Pilgrimage: Andrew and Karen Doye will lead a trip to the island of Iona, off the coast of south-west Scotland, from 15-22 April, 2023. We have now opened the event further to others beyond the parish itself, so feel able to commend the journey to any you personally know who would be interested.  We have booked all 23 places at the Episcopal Church’s ‘Bishop’s House’. For any who could not join the first presentation, there will be a repeat on Saturday 6 November 2021,10am.

Congratulations to Jane Wilkinson who has been awarded the medal of The Order of St Richard by Bishop Martin, Bishop of Chichester. The medal is presented to lay people from within the Diocese in recognition of their exceptional contributions to the parish, the local community and the Diocese.
