Why not come along to a special outdoor Celtic Communion service in the churchyard at St Mary Magdalene Church, Elmstone Hardwicke!

Just punch GL51 9TJ into the SatNav and let your car or bike take you there on Wednesday evening this week, 13th July, starting at 7.00 pm.

The service lasts about half an hour, with lovely worship songs included, and then we might have a glass of something long and cold together in the evening light.

With warm wishes,

From Fr Nick
