On the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each month, a newly-formed Prayer Group will meet in St Mary’s Church Centre at 3pm to pray for the life of the five churches in our Benefice during the Vacancy, for those taking on responsibilities during the Vacancy and for those who may respond to our need for a Rector.

On the 4th Monday of each month, Soup-er Lunch from 12noon until 1.30pm. Soup, bread and cheese will be offered in the downstairs hall of the Church Centre. All welcome

In Lent, some of the parishes will be offering a Lent Lunch on Mondays from 12noon until 1.30pm. Combe Florey will host a Lunch on Monday 8th April.
