Battle of Britain Sunday


 Sunday 17th September 2017 is Battle of Britain Sunday and we look forward to welcoming representatives of the Royal Air Force to our 11.15 service of Parish Worship.  These photographs from our War Memorial Chapel show the Roll of Honour of 603 Squadron which served with distinction in the Battle of Britain in 1940, and our modern cross from Camp Bastion, Afghanistan, in front of the statue Christus Victor.
