We are thrilled to announce that James Ellin has been accepted for ordination. Sadly, James and Emma will be leaving us; this is likely to be at the beginning of September. There will be a farewell celebration BBQ at the Old Rectory, midday on Sunday 2nd September (combining with Bryan and Tori, who are also leaving for ministry training). To contribute to a farewell gift for James or Bryan please pass it to the church office in an envelope with the appropriate name.

The next Ladies Film Night is happening Tuesday 24th July at 7.30pm. Come along and watch Saving Mr Banks; the remarkable story of PL Travers who wrote the original Mary Poppins novels.
