CHANGE IN PATTERN OF WORSHIP FOR APRIL

Because Easter falls on the First Sunday of the month, there will be a change from our usual pattern. The 10.00am service on Easter Day, April 1st,  will NOT be worship for all, but Easter Eucharist (There will be NO 11.15am service) There WILL be Evensong on Easter Day at 6.30pm. The usual pattern for the first Sunday will be a week later (April 8th) with Worship for All at 10.00am, said Eucharist at 11.15am and 6.00pm Evensong at St Mary's. Please consult the Diary  for full details.
