Notice Sheets from Kings Bromley, Hamstall Ridware and Mavesyn Ridware

In addition to the Notice sheet for Yoxall, we will be sending out the Notice sheets for the other Churches in our Benefice each week so that we can all pray for one another at this time.





While the churches are closed Deborah will celebrate the Eucharist at home at 10am every Sunday morning for us all. If you wish please do use the Service of Spiritual Communion to join in that service at home.  If you do not have a copy of the service just email Deborah:

Jeremy Brading in his new role of Rector of the Benefice, will take place on Saturday May 15th  at 4.00pm. The venue being All Saints Church, King’s Bromley, if circumstances allow.
