Pastoral Leave

Please note that Revd Cathy will be on extended pastoral leave from 2nd November until 4th January (inclusive). Thank you for all your support and prayers at this difficult time.

During my absence, if anyone requires pastoral support, please contact Revd Barbara Sheppard. If anyone requires prayer, please speak to Brenda Young. If issues arise around the fabric of our buildings, please do contact our Wardens, Jennifer Roe (St Barnabas) and Julie Hailstone (All Saints). Many thanks.
