Leesfield Parish – 10th September 2017

Welcome back after the holidays, hope you all had a great time!

Edith will not be with us for 3 months now, as she is taking a well-earned Sabbatical. She will not be involved in any Parish affairs during this period, although she will be at home in the Vicarage for some of the time and Stephen will continue to be at home and attend church as usual. 
During Edith’s absence the churches are the legal responsibility of the churchwardens, who have authority to make decisions. Much work has been done in preparation for Edith’s break to ensure that all runs smoothly and efficiently, and we will have guest preachers on several Sundays. If anyone has any queries please see Lesley or Philip.
