Most churches provide good space at the back for obvious reasons. Here parishioners arrive regularly into a cramped space at the back of the church and bunch up just inside the door while obtaining hymnbooks and newsletters. Hence last week the parish team removed four pews to obtain this space. We can also now more easily arrange notices, books and displays.

Our efforts to sell pews online or otherwise have failed, as buyers tend to seek smaller pews for house or garden. Hence anybody wishing to take one is invited to do so by making a donation. See Fr Charles on parish open day, Thursday, in the parish house.
