Sunday 29 January 2012

On Monday 20 February, Rev Canon Nick Buck will be licensed as Priest-in-Charge of the benefices of Branston with Nocton and Potterhanworth, and Metheringham with Blankney and Dunston. At the same service, Sister Liz of the Community of St Francis will be licensed as Assistant Curate to the two benefices. The service will take place at Dunston St Peter's at 7.30 pm.

We hope that as many people as possible will attend the service to welcome Canon Nick Buck and Sister Liz into their formal roles; they have been supporting us informally for some time!

Church roof update

Repairs to the chancel roof are now almost complete and work has now started on the south side of the nave, where the original tiles are being re-used. The recent mild weather has enabled good progress to be made, but any wintry conditions over the next few weeks could cause delays. However, we are still hoping to have the church back in use before Easter. We're getting there...
