Annual Visitations

The Archdeacons’ Visitations will take place this year during the month of May.

All those elected to be churchwardens for 2019 – 2020 are invited to attend the Visitation most convenient to them. They will make the public declaration during the service, required of them before they can take up the office, and be formally admitted as Churchwarden.
