NEXT SUNDAY - St Luke’s Day BYO Lunch:

To cel­eb­rate St Luke’s Day we are hold­ing a ‘Bring-Your-Own’ par­ish lunch in the car­park and the hall.

While COVID restric­tions mean that our BYO Lunch will (sadly) not be like our tra­di­tion­al shared lunch, we will be shar­ing each oth­er­’s com­pany, which is the most import­ant thing.

Please note: that due to Cov­id 19 restric­tions the Lunch that you bring needs to be pre-pre­pared at home and brought ready to eat as you will be unable to use the kit­chen to cook, heat or pre­pare food.

The food you bring for lunch will be for your­self and your imme­di­ate family/household only.

We hope to see every­one there with their own lunch!

Please RSVP to the office (email or phone) by Sat 17th October.



Next Sunday: 6pm Even­ing Ser­vice (Com­mu­nion avail­able on request).
