This parish has been asked to participate in a national Church of England pilot project to help parishes reflect on the quality of their welcome.

Regular members of the congregation are asked to invite a friend to come to church and then fill in a simple questionnaire. Invitation cards and questionnaires are available at the back of church and also online.

Please complete and return the questionnaire by early September.

In conjunction, the First Wednesday Meeting on Wednesday 4 September at 12.45-2.15pm has as its Topic: Taking Stock of the Welcome Survey: how invitational are we?

Please bring your own packed lunch, and a friend – tea/coffee will be provided. The session is held in the Mina Hogan Room of St Mary’s Parish Hall.
