What's on in Abbeystead June


Hi Everyone,

Hope you all enjoyed your Bank Holiday and enjoying the Half Term for those with children....

Things are certainly brightening up and that's not including the gorgeous weather.  Positivity is the key to get us through and hopefully everything will open up again at the end of June (fingers crossed).  If anyone is or you know someone who may be  struggling either with their mental health or financially please do get in touch, if we can help we will try even if it's only for a chat and a cuppa.


6th    11.00am   BCP

13th    5.30pm   Family Service

20th  11.00am   Holy Communion

Face masks are a prerequisite for inside, unfortunately there is still no singing, hopefully that won't deter you from coming and joining these services.
