Appointment of our new Vicar

We are thrilled to announce the appointment of Revd Nigel Taylor, currently Team Rector of Kidderminster Ismere in the Diocese of Worcester. The Licensing and welcome service will take place in the late autumn. Nigel and his wife Kate are very excited at the prospect of serving here.

We thank everyone for their help in this process and we look forward to welcoming the Taylors to our church community.

Donate the cost of a plant

The redevelopment of the grounds is finally coming together...hurrah! We will soon be at the exciting stage of installing the plants. The total cost of these is almost £2000. Thanks to the generosity of Dave Haddock and his nursery we are getting these at cost price which represents a huge saving for us.

Now who would like to donate the cost of a plant no matter how small or large? The plants range in price from £1.58 for a Euonymous to £85 for a Magnolia tree, please see a full list below and a plan for planting. You can donate in a number of ways, and it's up to you if you want me to know who it is from.

  • See me...I will gladly take your money!

  • Put your money in the box at the back of the church.

  • Transfer money using BACS and referencing it PLANTS

  • Hand it to Sarah in the office in an envelope marked PLANTS
