Breaking news…our new Programme Event Brochure is now available

Breaking news…our new Programme Event Brochure is now available. We hope that you like the new format – it is designed as an A3 flier that folds into a leaflet, so that all the events are on one A3 sheet, which can be put on a notice board. Many thanks to Mike, our designer, for reworking it so well and for keeping the characteristics and feel of the old-style brochure. If you would like copies to be sent to you, we will be sending out a mail shot around 19th-20th October, so please get in touch on and we can send you some copies.  Click on the button the home page to see the new brochure.

Warden recommended to train for ordination

Warden Jane Easterby has recently been recommended to train for ordination in the Newcastle Diocese. Jane will study part-time with the Lindisfarne Regional Training Partnership, whilst working full time as Warden. It is envisaged that she will continue as Warden for the foreseeable future as a Minister in Secular Employment after ordination. Jane is thrilled and excited and is looking forward very much to starting her training in September.
