Proposal Regarding Winter Services at Saint Cuthbert: At our parish council meeting in September, we had a discussion concerning the possibility of moving all regular services at Saint Cuthbert’s from Christmas to Easter to Ocean Swells Community Centre. This would not affect services at Saint Barnabas or All Saints. Please let your Council, Wardens and Rev. Louis know about them. If your comments are received in writing, it will be easier to give them full consideration. We hope to make a decision on this matter at our November Parish Council meeting. Thank-you for your thoughts and prayers.
