Today our All Souls Service is 3pm at St. Peter & St. Paul, Wangford.

This is an opportunity for all those would like to remember loved ones who have passed away to pray and to remember.  Names of many are read out, and there is an opportunity for everyone to light a candle.  Everyone is welcome, those with faith, and those with none, to find some peace, reassurance and comfort in remembering and giving thanks.

Waiting in Advent   This is an invitation to four meetings which will help us to slow down so that we can prepare for Christmas with joy and mindfulness by reflecting on the meaning of Advent.

Each week we will look at the meaning of one of the four Advent candles which stand for Abraham and Sarah, the Prophets, John the Baptist and Mary, the mother of Jesus and what we can learn from them about waiting. Please sign up on the sheet at the back of the church or contact
