Commissioning of the Rev’d Michael Lane

There was great excitement at the commissioning of our new vicar this week. A large number of locals and guests gathered to warmly welcome Michael and wife Carol to the parish and we eagerly embrace this next phase of our parish life.

‘The Link’ and how to get it!

The July edition of our church magazine, ‘The Link’, can be downloaded from our ‘Publications’ page. There’s a wealth of interesting articles including information about our new Vicar, reflections from locals, a potted life history and travellers tales – all beautifully put together. Enjoy!

Birthday Flavour

On Sunday we celebrated a number of birthdays but a particularly special one was that of Sally Fuller seen in the photo with her cake for the occasion. The young folk were out in force too, pictured here being attentive to Fr Tony’s chat with them. During the service they produced some handmade greetings for Sally.

Good Shepherd Sunday

The recent Patronal Festival was a joyful occasion with special guest Bishop Tim Harris leading the service. Afterwards we shared a delicious barbecue lunch.

 

Yeah Easter – Alleluia!

The early birds managed to experience the sun rise over the first service of the day in our lovely garden.

 

The children became involved in the later Easter Day Service. First the story, then preparations for the musical procession . . . and finally the search for the eggs outside. No egg was safe.
