On the third Sunday of every month we offer a Family Worship service at 10.30am. This is for families and children and is at St Wilfrid's Church. It lasts less than half an hour, followed by refreshments.

Also during term time we run a Toddlers Service on Tuesdays at 2.00pm. So, following the Easter holiday fortnight, it resumes on Tuesday 25 April.


This Sunday 23 April 2017 - Easter 2 - is when we hold our Annual Parish Meeting, at which Parochial Church Council (PCC) members and Wardens are elected. It will be in St Wilfrid's Church at 11.15am. To give time for everyone in the parish to attend, Eucharist at the Presentation Church will be at the earlier time of 10.00am.

The Sunday Link for 23 April 2017 - Easter 2, gives details of the services and events at both our churches over the next week.
Looking further ahead, Sunday Link has news of Christian Aid Week in May, when it will be our charity.
