Thank you to all who devote time and energy in committing themselves to this most vital part of the church’s pastoral work and mission. The Parish is much indebted to you.
Though not everyone works directly with children, young people and vulnerable adults, we all as church members have a responsibility to care for one another, of whatever age, and to recognise that at some stage of our lives we may ourselves become vulnerable and in need of help: 'See that you love one another'.
