To keep you in the picture; on the Retirement of Rev Stephen Williams, incumbent of Harlington Church, on 6th April 2021, Nigel has now officially become the incumbent of St Mary's Church, Harlington, which now forms part of a new benefice of three parishes with Westoning and Tingrith. Linda will now become Associate Minister at Harlington in addition to Associate Minister at Westoning and Tingrith, and will continue as Priest in Charge of Toddington and Chalgrave parishes. Nigel continues to be an Associate Minister at Toddington and Chalgrave churches in addition to his new role.

We send you our love and prayers.  Please do get in touch if you would like any support, prayers, or just a chat.

God bless

Linda
