Parish Diary, News

Parish Focus and Diary

Parish Focus is an occasional publication issued to the members of our Parish Churches, with contributions from members via our Rector, the Revd Ray Smith.

It includes dates of forthcoming events over the next few months from our monthly Parish Diary and discussion of a wide range of topical issues ranging from getting confirmed, news of the charity shop and our group activities to regular giving to the church.

Parish Diary will cease to be published after 31 August. It is being replaced by our new Parish Calendar, which can already be viewed on this website, on its own separate page. It allows longer descriptions of events to be posted and is easier to update quickly. Parish Calendar is one of the several components of our new ChurchSuite program, a church management system in which every member of our parish who is online can register as a User.


Users can view the Parish Calendar, receive timely reminders about when they are next down on a rota, arrange rota swaps which everyone on their rota will see, and much more. To ask to register as a User, please email
