Young Adults’ Group

The first talk of the Young Adults’ Group will take place on Wednesday 7th February at 7pm in the Hall. The winter/spring series will explore the nature of the Church and all the many different things which make the Church to be the living body of Christ. As a little warm-up to the series, there will be a cheese and wine social evening in the Hall on Monday 29th Jan from 7pm. All under-35s welcome.

Fabric Works in the Cathedral

Just to draw your attention to the fact that we have a number of significant leaks in the roof of the Cathedral which are in urgent need of repair. These are almost entirely in the flat roof section on either side of the building which needs to be replaced. Having taken quotes and with the permission of the Diocese we have, therefore, given the go-ahead to the builders to replace the flat roofs. This will cost in the region of £20,000. This is money that we do not really have – however the works need to be done and we have been advised that it will be detrimental to the fabric to delay. The work will begin in the next couple of weeks.

God bless you and your families this week, Fr Patrick, Fr Nick, Deacon Peter and Sr Mary Cora
