Fr James Heard.

J. Holland's Kitchen is open from 8am to 4.30pm Monday to Saturday.  Linking with our vision to open our beautiful church to as many people as possible we are so excited about this latest venture.  Please pop in if you can and enjoy a cool drink (if this wonderful summer continues) or tea and coffee with cake, the church is lovely and cool, a perfect place to take a step back, have a quiet meditation and enjoy our Grade 1 listed building.

Cleaning work has started at St John the Baptist. The church and café remain open during this essential work, there is scaffolding inside the church and areas will be unavailable for access, but it will all be signposted. There was a small fire in 2017 which resulted in a lot of smoke damage, the specialist cleaning company expects the work to last for a couple of months.

If you would like to volunteer to help during the Sunday services, please speak with Fr James, Fr Neil, Fr Peter or the Parish office. We are looking for sidespeople (the people who greet you when you enter the church), readers, people to guide the prayers, people to help with the chalice and servers during the service (all training can be given), people to help with coffee after the service.

Wednesday Lunch time at St George's Bible study has ended for the summer. It resumes on Wednesday September 12. The next dates are September 26, October 10, 17 and 31; November 14 and 28, and December 12.
