Feast of Christ the King: Sunday 20th November.

Please also join us afterwards for a Barbecue Lunch (instead of the previously advertised soup lunch) in the Parish Hall at 12 noon as we celebrate the end of the Christian year. You are invited to bring drinks, salad and dessert and can sign up at the back of Church.
