Scripture Group

We have halted the Scripture study meetings for the winter and hope to begin again in the new year.  Thank you to everyone who has supported the Scripture meetings over the years. It may be that parishioners would prefer to  have some workshops/meetings on other elements of the faith and, if this is the case, please speak to Fr Simon so that we can look into providing this.


Winner: £40 Prize this week – Mr Steve Orford
