Lent

Parish Teams

We’re looking at re-launching our parish teams, as we think about how we can best serve the parish together.

To think about this together, we are holding a meeting at St Paul’s on the 7th March at 7:30pm.

All our parish teams will be meeting together on that day. And anyone else who would like to get involved in parish teams or hear about the way we run the day-to-day life of the parish are welcome!

A date for your diary!

On Sunday 7th May, following the King’s Coronation, we are having a day of fun at Manningham-on-Sea at St Pauls!

There is much to be done to make this a fun and celebratory day in our community and we’d love your help.
