Death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II

It is with great sadness we hear of the death of Queen Elizabeth.

The church will be open from 10am Friday 9th September for any who wish to remember or reflect on the life our Monarch for 70 years.

Lack of updates

A word of apology for those of you looking here for details of services. I had failed to notice that the calendar events I had created had ceased to be valid and this meant there were no services showing.

They are now in for rest of the year (subject to update for 5th Sunday, Harvest and Remembrance)


Funeral Pat Tidsall

The funeral service for Pat Tidsall will be held at 12 noon on Friday 1st July. This time replaces the previously notified times.

There will be a chance to meet with members of the family and others who remember Pat over coffee and snacks in church after the service. If you can bring something to share it would be appreciated.


Just to let you know we hope to have a full peal rung to celebrate the Jubilee – starting at 10 am on Saturday morning.
