News from Clare

I’ve just been promoted to Clinical Lead Chaplain in the chaplaincy team I work with. This means I’ll be working full time from early February and will have to give up some of the things I do in the parish. I’ll still be around … just not as much! Clare Connors.


Mothers' Union

There will not be a Mothers' Union meeting in January. The next meeting will be the A.G.M. on Tuesday 15th February 2022.


Vacuum cleaners needed

The various vacuum cleaners in church and the hall are all very much past their best, despite our best maintenance efforts. If anyone has a spare they don’t need, in good working order, could you let either David Tompkins or John Charlton know, and we’ll be delighted to take it off your hands. Alternatively contact the office. David Tompkins, Warden.
