What’s On

Next Daylight meeting: 13th July 2024 at 10 am in St Aidan’s Chapel. Further details about Daylight are here.

Open Garden Trails: Sunday 23rd June 10am-4pm: as part of the Belle Vue Arts Festival, congregation member, James Monger, is opening his garden in Belle Vue – address from the office, parking on Grey Friar’s Road. James has designed his own garden, which is colour themed and full of both unusual and well-loved plants, shrubs and trees. It is approached by a long path with rose and clematis arches so is sadly not wheel-chair accessible. Refreshments available at neighbour’s. Programmes available (eg Stop Café. Grey Friars Bridge). £3 entry for all of the 20 garden openings around Belle Vue…just look for the big plastic sunflower and lots of balloons marking the way in at No 64.

The Churchwardens are formally admitted to their roles each year at the Archdeacon’s Visitation. This year’s visitation will be at Holy Trinity Leaton on 26th June at 7pm. It will be conducted by the Acting Archdeacon, Rev Preb Jo Farnworth. Please support the Churchwardens in celebrating with them their shared call to serve God in mission and ministry.
