As we move into October new service times will start in the Parish. Change is never easy to accept or to implement and so its with trepidation and prayer that arrangements change. The new times and new services give more time for clerics to move between services, put in place Saturday evening and weekday services to refresh  worship across the Parish. A lot of brave steps have been taken by many people who desire the Parish to feed a wider section of the community recognising that standing still in actual fact means going backwards. Disruption occurs across all areas of society the gift is being able to surf the familiar waves in a new way.
