Annual Meeting

The Annual Church meeting will be held on Sunday 30th April. If you are a parishioner or member of Breadsall church, you will be most welcome to the event which starts at 1145am.

Immediately before the meeting, there will be an opportunity to discuss the future direction for the parish as part of the morning service starting at 1015am.

Lent Groups

We will be starting Lent study groups next week (28 February) and 8 March. This year, we will be studying the Archbishop of Canterbury’s new book, Dethroning Mammon. This promises to be an interesting challenge. There will be one group in Oakwood on Tuesday evenings, hosted by John and Marion Ellis, and the other in Breadsall probably on Wednesday evenings, hosted by Dorreen Milner. These groups will be self contained so even if you have not been coming to the groups before, you will be welcome to join one of these groups just for Lent. Please contact Chris Prior for further information if needed.

Breadsall church hosts picnic for Queen’s 90th birthday

The church played host to a picnic to celebrate Her Majesty the Queen’s Official 90th birthday on June 12th. This had to be held indoors due to the inclement weather but a good time was had by all. This followed a service at which we welcomed back Sister Diana to preside due to the Rector being away on retreat. We also had a anthem sung by the choir which had been written by our Director of Music Ministry, Dana de Waal. This was a song of thanks for Her Majesty and her (and our) God. Some photos of the picnic are in the gallery.
