Bishop Richard's Visit
We would like to thank Bishop Richard for visiting us in the benefice last week starting off on Thursday when he took time to visit people and communities in Toddington and Chalgrave. He then met with the PCC in the evening looking at how we, as a church and community, can grow our love and work for God.
Bishop Richard then returned to the benefice on Sunday leading the worship at both All Saints and St George's.

Easter Sunday at St George’s was a truly spiritual uplifting experience as we celebrated the resurrection of Jesus Christ. An almost full church was attended by adults and children alike and gave a family and community feel to the service.
The Sung Eucharist service was supported by our choir of 9 people that was formed by Mark Williams to take part in this service after many years of having no choir.
The church was beautifully decorated by members of the congregation with
candles, the Easter Garden with particular thanks to Dee Curtis and flowers with
particular thanks to June Vyse. Thank you to all.
