tracing its history back over more than 900 years. The congregation share traditional Christian worship
and values, reaching out into the wider community with a hand of
friendship and welcome to all who would wish to join them.

however, the current congregation is very much focused on Christian
life and worship in the present and into the future.

Under guidance from Bishop Richard, our Rector, Robert Ward,
has decided to take up a window of opportunity that
currently exists within the Diocese for a short period of
study leave, starting from 8 August and continuing through
to 7 November. The number of diocesan opportunities
for clergy to engage in ‘study leave’ available in each
year is limited. As it is at least eleven years since
Robert last took formal 'time out' in his thirty years of
ordained ministry to renew and refresh his theological
studies this opening is both timely and convenient as it
falls in a quieter time of the church year. Plans are
in place to ensure that the life and work of the churches
continues smoothly in his absence and these will (soon) be
available on the church websites. Any queries can be
directed to Churchwardens or PCC
members, whilst Mike Vockins is
happy to respond where a priest is required. We look
forward to welcoming Robert back as he continues his
ministry within the Benefice and the Deanery in November.
