A Remider about Parish meeting with Arthur Copeman

The survey has now closed with special thanks to everyone who made their voice by completing the parish survey. Following on from the collation of the survey results, a meeting of parishioners will be held on Sunday afternoon, 19th August at 3pm in the Hall to discuss the results and formalise our position. It is important that you attend this meeting to hear an update on next steps in seeking a new Rector, to make your voice heard and to take part in our community of faith.

Supporting St John’s Church

We encourage members of St John’s to support the ministry of our parish by giving directly to the parish account, rather than bringing cash to church. If you can do this, our account details are:

Rectory Working Bee

A working bee has been propsed by parish council for Saturday the 8th of September. Please let Mark or Ken know if you are able to help with general work to be undertaken in the Rectory. If you are unable to make it on the day, donations are also being taken for the cost of proessional work to be undertaken.
