There will be space for discussion and prayer, finishing with refreshments before the service of holy communion at 6.30pm.
Meets on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month from 10.30 am to 12 noon. This is a group for those in ‘ retirement’ and all are welcome. For information please contact the Parish Office.
