Services this month: NOVEMBER

“Belonging to Christ has never been measured by the number of people in church for a Sunday Service but by the service we offer to others every day.” Rev. Richard Newton invites you to participate in our next on-line Sunday Service ~ 11:00am St. Leonard’s Patronal Festival Holy Communion 1st November Leonard of Noblac (or of Limoges); died 559 AD, was a Frankish saint closely associated with the town and abbey of Saint-Léonard-de-Noblat, in Haute- Vienne, in the Limousin region of France who converted to Christianity along with the king, at Christmas 496. Leonard became a hermit in the forest of Limousin, where he gathered a number of followers. Leonard or Lienard became one of the most venerated saints of the late Middle Ages and, through his varied and interesting roles in life, his intercession was credited with miracles for the release of prisoners, women in labour, the diseases of cattle, and for horses. There is an alternative service available ALL WEEK on this website - on the next page <This Week>
