As a result of our listening and discerning, the PCC has approved the introduction of an additional Sunday service, potentially starting in Jan/Feb 2020. This will mean a slight change to some of the service times on Sundays. The 10am Sung Eucharist will move to 9.30am and the new service will start with refreshments and begin at 11.15am in the Abbey. The 8am service will remain at 8am and Baptisms will move to 12.45pm. The monthly 11.30am BCP service will continue, but at a time to be discussed and agreed. There will be future opportunities to hear more about these developments and ask questions.More »
