The theme of “Welcoming” was taken up by Bishop John Sherrington at the recent diocesan day on Families and Faith. He spoke about ways we can attract people to the Church, and keep those we have already, by our attitude to our faith. No-one is attracted by gloomy and inward looking people, so we need to find ways to keep refreshing our faith; be aware of other people; and support them through difficult times so that we can journey together towards the Light that is always shining in front of us.
Wednesday, 31st December - 8pm until 12.15am

We are happy to welcome back our bronze statue of St Hugh which you can see to the right of the glass doors as you come into the church. St Hugh has been lovingly restored by Susan Lee, and he now sits on a beautifully made plinth designed and carved by stone mason Mark Stafford.
To help celebrate our parish feast day, and the ‘return of St Hugh’ please join us in the church hall, between 3.30pm and 6pm, this Sunday for a cheese and wine celebration. Non-alcoholic beverages are also available.
Tickets cost £3 each and are available on the door.
