Last Saturday in Taney Parish, we held our annual Fête. As usual, the Fête featured a large number of stalls and entertainment, along with a variety of different foods to treat ourselves with. The Fête is always a great opportunity to provide a social occasion for the local community, to reach out, and to invite people in to enjoy our facilities. Thank you to everybody who supported the Fête, in organising it, helping set up, organising and manning stalls and attending the Fête.


The Rector continues to make contact with parishioners who have been admitted to hospital, wherever possible. Due to rising Covid numbers physical access to hospitals may be curtailed for Chaplains.  Please inform the Parish Office if you or another parishioner or family member is admitted to hospital. We are also happy to include those who so wish in our Parish Prayer List. In the event of a pastoral concern or emergency, the Rector is available on the Parish emergency phone (083 477 1673).
