early in the New Year (date to be fixed) to enable all who may be interested to find out more,
both those thinking of renewing connections with parish life and those who might like to act as
welcomers in their own parishes. New recruits are always welcome but you will not be asked for
any definite commitment. For more information contact Maggie Millrain or Ian Johnson on 01753
