On Sunday 11th March at 11am we celebrate Mother’s Day. Originally Mother’s Day had nothing to do with mothers at all. Rather it was a day for Christians to visit their "mother" church. On that day domestic servants were given the day off to return to their hometown and worship with their families. On their way home these servants would pick wild flowers to place in the church - or give to their mothers.
Over the years the day has evolved into an occasion for children to honour and give presents to their hardworking mothers.
On Mother’s Day children and adults will also honour their mothers and all mothers will receive flowers at the end of the service. Mothers and members of the Ladies Guild will help lead the service on that day. We would encourage everyone in the Parish and particularly Mothers to come along and celebrate Mother’s Day with us.
Easter Vestry Elections
The annual Easter Vestry is held once a year. At the Annual Easter Vestry parishioners vote new members on to the Select Vestry who will serve for one
year. Select Vestry members are responsible for the Finance, Fixtures and Fittings of all church property. The Easter Vestry also elects the People’s
Churchwarden, People’s Glebewarden, Supplemental Glebewarden. The Rector appoints Churchwarden, Glebewarden and Supplemental
Glebewarden. The Rector gives a report on the parish over the past year and his hopes for the incoming year. The treasurer also gives a report on the financial position on the parish. All the organisations belonging to the parish give a short report highlighting the preceding year as appropriate.
We encourage all parishioners to attend the Easter General meeting as this is parishioners opportunity to elect the Select Vestry for 2018 to listen to the annual reports and to voice their views and opinions. READ MORE
