St Mary’s is looking for help

We need some folk to join the group that looks after our buildings and grounds. If you feel you might have practical skills or the ability to work with others who do, including contractors. Please have a word with Duncan, Hazel or one of the Churchwardens.

Have you ever considered …

… sharing with others in the leadership of the parish? It’s an easier task when it’s shared and we’re looking for folk to join the Church Council at both St Anne’s and St Mary’s. There is a role description on the noticeboard in both churches or have a word with one of the clergy or a Churchwarden. You never know, it might even be fun!
