HOSPITAL VISITS

The clergy would appreciate being told if parishioners are in hospital, going into hospital, are being transferred or if they have been discharged, and will be pleased to offer pastoral support.  Please understand that the clergy are not automatically informed when parishioners are admitted to hospital. 

 

 TRANSPORT

We have a number of Parishioners who would dearly love to attend Sunday Services, and who require transport.  If you feel in any way that you could offer to collect one or two of these parishioners it would be very much appreciated.  Please contact the parish office or one of the clergy if you can assist.
