Don’t forget our new pattern for Sunday services across the Benefice starts in May!
Our Benefice Worship Committee has been listening to our congregations and has come up with a new pattern of services across the Benefice, which will appeal to everyone. The new pattern provides regular sustained Parish worship that appeals to our communities and allows us to join together once a month for a Benefice Eucharist at the slightly earlier time of 10.30am, something many people have requested.
