UPDATED WITH TICKET LINK: Meeting with potential new pastor (13th June)

The Oversight Team are keen that as many people as possible have the opportunity to meet the possible new senior pastor who is visiting to preach at Priory Street on June 13th, 2021. To that end we are organising two meetings after the service to be held in the Church Hut garden, so that more people can have the opportunity to meet and chat with the candidate following the service.

Our STRIPE (COVID guidance) team, have prepared the following document that outlines the guidelines we will be asking all attendees to follow for these meetings in order that we can provide as safe an environment as possible for everyone attending.

If you would like to attend, please do take the time to read this document.
