Harvest Thanksgiving – Harvest Bakes please! We will be celebrating on 23rd September with Harvest Bakes and coffee or tea after the 10:30 am service – a chance to enjoy fellowship and home-made produce. Please bring either savoury or sweet bakes so that there will be plenty to share with Gatehouse guests too. Thank you! Joanne Russell
A message from Revd Georgie Simpson: My dear friends, As some of you may know, on Michaelmas Sunday, 30th September, I am officially retiring from my position as Associate Priest in the Benefice. My final service will be the 10.30 am Parish Eucharist at St Margaret’s. Ben and I would like to invite you all to drinks and nibbles after that service and do hope you will be able to join us. With much love, Georgie
