A big thank you to the Social Committee for their preparations, and to Dave, Chris and John the BBQ-ers, for producing such an excellent evening for us. As it turned out, there was just a light drizzle during the evening, but our decision to re-locate from the Rectory garden seemed to be a sensible one. It proved to be a very happy and relaxed occasion FJ
BENEFICE CONFIRMATION – JANUARY 2018
I am hoping that we can have a Confirmation Service at the Abbey Church in January. I have pencilled a date in the diary, but this is dependant on candidates for the Bishop to confirm. If you are not confirmed and would like to consider it, please speak to Fr John before 10th September so that the date can be confirmed with the Bishop. FJ
