Praise and Pizza

Praise and Pizza is a different kind of service. We begin with refreshments, which dovetail neatly into those served after the 9.30am Eucharist (we don’t want it to be completely separate from what we do at the moment), and it’s aimed at the young at heart – primarily young people, but all those who might welcome a different style of worship. We end with pizza! Eat pizza and praise Jesus!

Thank You!

Our three churches would not be able to operate without a lot of people who, together, make up a huge army of volunteers, carrying out an equally huge range of tasks and ministries. We really wouldn’t be what we are without you all. On Sunday 15th July at St Mildred’s we will acknowledge your contribution to the life of our churches, and say ‘thank you’!

The afternoon will begin at 2.30pm with a talk about The ‘Urgent’ Miss Babington by Eleanor Bliss. Miss Babington was only the vicar’s daughter, but what an incredible life she led. This will be followed by a short act of worship, and a word or two by Archdeacon Darren. We will then enjoy tea together.

So, good people of St Mildred’s, St Michael’s and St John’s, please come if you can!
