October’s DIOCESAN PRAYER CALENDAR is now available at The calendar highlights specific intentions in one or two Deaneries, together with a reflection from a Rural Dean on the ministry they see around them and a message from a member of Bishop’s Staff. Some copies are printed and are in church - please take yours.
