World Day of Prayer
Friday 5 March,2021
We would normally arrange to meet in one of our three village churches, for a short act of worship, followed by refreshments, to celebrate World Day of Prayer but as that will not be possible this year Churches Together would like to invite you to join them for a live Zoom service.
Pause for Thought
With the Reverend Angela Hannafin
Be comfortable just as you are
We’re currently in the Christian season of Lent, a time to put other distractions aside and take stock of our own humanity and spirituality. It’s fair to say that this is a Lent unlike any other we’ve seen. We may be very drained and unable to engage with God as we have before. This is totally normal, considering all we have been through due to the pandemic...
What Makes Us Christian
Our churches remain closed through Lent but our online 'services' continue with a look at what it is that makes us Christians, focusing on a different aspect on each of the five Sundays in Lent.
CARE - INCLUSION - WELCOME - LOVE - PEACE
Our weekly Lent sessions, based on the book #LiveLent - God’s Story – Our Story, also continue, as does our monthly, Wednesday night, parish quiz. Contact the Parish Office if you would like to join in.
22 February - 7 March 2021
For two weeks each year at the end of February and start of March, thousands of individuals, companies and groups across the UK come together to share the stories of the people who grow our food and drinks, mine our gold and who grow the cotton in our clothes, people who are often exploited and underpaid.
Our parish is supporting Fairtrade Fortnight and we hope that you can support it too.
Village News Magazine
The Feb - Mar 21 edition of our online Village News magazine is now available.
The magazine combines a mix of articles of general interest with church news and information. This edition focuses on the hope that the changing seasons bring and on some of the people and groups in our villages.

Our Environmental Policy
Our planet is facing a dramatic change in climate, which according to scientists the world over is a result of human action over the last 150 years, predominantly through the burning of fossil fuels to create energy.
As Christians we have a responsibility to take care of God's creation and the Parish Environmental Policy declares our commitment to do just that.
