We've run out of Sunday's after Trinity (it happens occasionally). But rather than returning to the Sunday's after Epiphany, we're going to celebrate Christ the King, along with most of the rest of the western churches. Please do come along at 1030 for our Sung Eucharist. The English Chamber Choir will sing for us, with music from Gibbons and Vaughan Williams. Please join us!
