Nature, Gardens & Walks
Our aim in creating this website has been threefold:- firstly, to publicize information about our beautiful little church:- times of worship, social events, it's history and architecture; secondly, to share with you our enjoyment of the area in which it is set; and thirdly, to provide you with some thoughtful reading for the quieter moments in your life. Although stemming from the rhythm of the church's year, these articles could well speak meaningfully to you at any time.
Above all, we hope you don't just rush through our lovingly-created pages, but enjoy spending some time with us.
Jean and Pauline

OUR DEAR RECTOR KAREN RAYNER
Karen has been on sick leave since January having numerous hospital stays and treatments; we pray for her and for Mike constantly, hoping for her recovery and for her return to us .
Sadly, after yet one more hospitalisation, Karen has been in touch to say that she accepts she is unable to continue with stipendiary ministry. This news causes great sadness to us all and we know that both she and Mike will be heartbroken too as we all felt they had been called to minister to this benefice and had achieved so much in their precious time amongst us. We keep praying and hoping.
