    Our Patronal Festival and Exciting Building Announcements

    Our patronal festival is always a great celebration as we call to mind the Blessed Virgin Mary, to whom our church is dedicated. Our guest preacher, Canon Paul Thompson, gave us a challenging and thought-provoking sermon, and it was good to build on our links with his own institution of Epsom College, where he is Senior Chaplain and our own Director of Music, Jonathan Holmes, is organist.

    HOPE 2018

Once the football had finished however, lots and lots of people started to arrive. All of our games were in constant use, with queues… we’ll have to bring more next year!
