ALL AGE SERVICES on the FESTIVAL OF Ss PETER & PAUL Both Churches in the Parish will be celebrating this great day by exploring the stories of Ss Peter & Paul and how that connects to our own stories today. The 10am Services will be All-Age Services with a Parade of Guides and Brownies at the Parish Church and music sung by the Parish Girl's Choir. Come along at 10am, bring the whole family, invite a friend, and enjoy a great time of worship, testimony, and a celebration of the Eucharist.

In time, building works and associated activity programmes will be planned and commence and there is some money to raise ourselves, for which bids will be prepared immediately, but for now we thank
