From the Vicar

Warm Greetings.

Thanks for all who joined us for our Christmas services for 2022. Most of those involved in the operation of the parish will be taking a break at some time throughout January. But... the good news is that worship is still happening as usual on Sunday mornings at 10am. 1st and 3rd Sundays are at St Mary's in Heathcote on the corner of Martindales and Truscotts Rds. 2nd and 4th Sundays at Mt Pleasant, 39 Major Hornbook Rd.

Pastoral care continues during the month as usual. Please call me if you are in need of assistance. 027 475 9946

Happy New year and have a great January!

Vicar.
