Join us for Sung Eucharist during Ride & Stride Day...

There will be a Sung Eucharist from 12-13.30 on the 9th September in Fotheringhay.

"The service is being hosted by our vicar Rev Anne Hindle and will be celebrated by Rev Canon William Gulliford of St Mark's Church, Regents Park, London. He is bringing his full choir from London in order to celebrate the Assumption of Our Lady and also to deliver to Rev Hindle a historic vestment, made at the end of the last century by The Little Sisters of The Poor, for use in Fotheringhay."

Anyone riding or striding at the time is very welcome to attend all or part of the service. Refreshments will be offered at the end of the service.

Grants
