A letter from the Rectory – April 2023

Dear Friends & Neighbours,

I love a good story …don’t you?

I grew up loving Beauty and the Beast, C.S Lewis’s The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and the Last Battle and I love the classics like Pride and Prejudice, and Emma and then there’s The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings… and The Shawshank Redemption… and so many more; some of them are stories I’ve read, some of them are films I’ve watched.… Read the whole story

Letter from Rev. Cathy Bladen

Dear Friends & Neighbours,

Daily 10 – 4

for private prayer and reflection.

You are most welcome.… Read the whole story

Message from the Rector

Dear Friends & Neighbours,

Happy March…

According to the meteorological calendar, Spring starts on the 1st March…I think most of us are pleased to see the bulbs beginning to appear, the evenings drawing out, the hedgerows greening up and the first signs of birds nesting; It brings a smile to our faces as we begin to look forward to the warmer months.… Read the whole story
