    Dear Parishioners,
    Please notify us of your sad bereavement as soon as you feel able to,
    so that we may announce it here in our Parish Obituary column. 
    Our prayers and thoughts are with you and your family.
    Thank You.

    Some very minor cosmetic changes have been made to our familiar Homepage.

    The older, six-years old Menubar at the top of this page, along with all its many links to our website,
    has been reorganised into a more prominent, visual display area and the contents are now
    in alphabetical order for easier navigation and your convenience.

    There are no changes to anything below this simple announcement.

    Our website host, Church Edit, is planning its own changes soon to update its service to make
    our own website an ever better experience.

    Because space on our website is normally restrictred to events in both our parishes, it is difficult to include other informative data of the sort that are useful to as wide a range as possible for the benefit of our parishioners. This is only a minute amount of what is available on the government website but the links below included here lead to many other areas of additional help and support.

    Unlike the wording of the title, not "everything" is included else there would not be room for the Newsletter and Parish Events! However, all the links open a treasure of useful services that not all people know existed.
