You Matter To God

You Matter To Us

 

 

In line with Anglican Churches across the UK we will not be holding Services in our churches over the coming weeks and our Churches are now closed. 

If you are wanting to have a christening or a wedding; or are in the sad position of having to plan a funeral, please contact us for details of how these will be held in our churches during the Corona virus crisis. 

We are fortunate to be part of two friendly and helpful communities. If you are in need of help with shopping, appointments or simply want to talk to someone, please get in touch with our churchwardens: 

Bishop Monkton

Sue Short 677496  or Sue Hargreaves 677523

Burton Leonard
