An Update from Sarah our Curate

Today I am announcing that I will be leaving St Francis Church, Luton to take up the Incumbent post at All Saints Cheadle Hulme. This is subject to all legal formalities being fulfilled. I do not have a leaving date or a licensing date as of yet but you will be informed of these as soon as I hear. I have loved being part of St Francis these past three years and it is a bitter sweet moment to be moving on. I look forward to joining All Saints and getting to know the church up there and see what God is doing. God Bless Sarah (& Maggie)

We are aware that people will be concerned, worried and fearful of what is to come and so it is important that we support each other best we can. We can always turn to God and remember that God will never leave us and he gives us peace. 

We will be praying for you all and we are thinking of creative ways to join us together in this so keep an eye out via our Website, Email, Facebook, Twitter or Instagram for updates. We will also be using these platforms to keep you updated generally.
