What’s Happening this Week 


Our APCM is on Monday 24th April, 7pm in St Mary’s Church, starting with tea, coffee and cake!
This will be a time to meet together to celebrate all that has happened in St John’s with St Mary’s over the last year, and to pray together for what is to come.
We will be electing our Churchwardens, Deanery Synod reps and PCC members, in addition to praying and worshipping together and hearing some ‘live reports’ about some of our ministries. Other reports will be in paper form, and will be available for you to read before the meeting.
The PCC want to make this an exciting time of celebration – please make every effort to come along and join in.
