RECENT EVENTS

Handbell Ringing at Harlaxton

Our new BIshop - Stephen - addressing the crowds after his enthronement

It's very apt that our Annual Parochial Church Meetings are during the Easter Season. After all Jesus said after his resurrection:
'And he said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation. (Mark 16:15)

So as we remember the events of the resurrection we reflect on our mission and vision: where are we going? What is our Church for?
Two years ago we summarised our vision and mission as:
     Loving and Living, Sharing and Growing
and our APCM's are a good time to look at what we have done and think about where we are going.

So please come along to your Church's APCM and join the journey!

Finally, for you do to keep our churches flourishing....
