Hi everyone, just to let you know that Rev Nick’s final service as Rector of the Benefice will be on Sunday 27th November 2016 at 11am at the Forest Church, Drybrook (this will be a joint Benefice Service) before he leaves to join the North Cheltenham Team Ministry as Team Rector. This will mark the conclusion of Nick’s ten years as Rector here and we very much hope to see you on this occasion.
Our Benefice Church in Ruardean will be holding its Patronal Festival on the weekend of 25th & 26th June 2016. It promises to be a wonderful weekend with the Church open for various events. Come along on both days to see the wonderful displays and flower arrangements from local organisations.
