Autumn Quiz 2018 ………. The Answers

For all those who took part in our Autumn Quiz (and for those who didn’t take the plunge), here are the answers to our quiz.


Annual Church Meetings 2018

The Annual Parish (Vestry) Meeting and Annual Parochial Church Meeting will be held on Sunday 29th April, 11.15 am at St Michael’s following our Family Worship.

Please do stay on after our Worship and take part. These are really important meetings. At them, elections take place and there is a discussion of the Church Accounts and reports on the business and life of our church.

On 13th April, the Church Electoral Roll and formal Notification of the Meetings will be published. The Report Booklet, including Accounts, will be available from that date on this website as well as in our Churches. Please do take the time to read the report prior to the Meetings.
