General Synod

The General Synod of the Church of England meets 6-9 February. one of the items on the agenda is the outcome of the House of Bishops' "Living in Love and Faith" discussions.
Read more about this on this page of the Diocesan website, where you will find a link to Bishop David's open letter to the Diocese.

Prayers for Ukraine

Your prayers are still needed. Prayers and other resources are available on the Diocesan website
We are entirely self-funded and we have cut back our expenses as much as possible; but we still need a regular income.
We're grateful to everyone who continues to support the church and its work, which goes beyond weekly services. In particular, we are thankful for some generous donations over the Christmas period, which have helped reduce our deficit. Thank you!
