We welcomed Bishop Rob Wickham for baptism and confirmation of children, adults and young people.
Come and celebrate Harvest Festival on October 7th at 10am.
We give thanks to God our Creator, but also share something of what we say ‘thank you’ for with others.
This year our gifts will support the winter night shelter at the United Reformed Church in Pond Square. They need pasta, rice, tinned beans or veg or bottled sauces, tea, coffee, and breakfast cereals.
Work has now completed on the restoration of the carved stonework over the west doors of the church.
Expert restorers from Taylor Pearce painstakingly worked for two months in a project supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund, and supervised by Colin Kerr of Thomas Ford and Partners.
The clean, well-lit front of the church shows, at the upper level, Jesus on the cross flanked by his mother, Mary, and his ‘beloved disciple’ possibly John.
The lower stonework shows Mary and Jesus.
The upper stonework was designed by J. Harold Gibbons.
