Fifteenth  Sunday  after  Trinity

Sung Eucharist

Celebrant: Rev'd Denis Samways

The Rector is taking the Harvest Thanksgiving Service at Challoch 

We remember in our prayers:  Bunty Love, Beth Wood, Sholto Steel, Rowan Huggitt, Valery Glover, Katherine Askew(Challoch) and our many elderly and vulnerable church members still shielding. We  pray for them and for family members especially those far away. 

Many people have advised us that they will not be attending church during the current pandemic situation. This is very much understood and we assure everyone of our prayers.

There is an online Scottish Episcopal Sunday service:
