Days the rector is not available

All clergy, just like the rest of us, need their day off each week: and for our Rector, her day off happens on most Fridays.

We as a PCC also believe it is important that Carol has a monthly 48-hour period of regular reflective time to be able to refresh and reflect on where God is leading and guiding. For Revd Carol this is the Monday and Tuesday following the last Sunday in each month.

Please respect these times. (In emergency a churchwarden or deputy is available.)
