Changes to Leigh on Mendip Church Service Location

As many of you will be aware, work will start at the beginning of March 2018 to repair and restore the nave roof at St Giles’ Church, Leigh on Mendip.  This will mean that the services held at St Giles’ will have to take place elsewhere whilst the work is ongoing.

It is intended that the All Age Service at 11.00 on the first Sunday of the month will relocate to Leigh on Mendip Memorial Hall.  The Holy Communion Service on the last Sunday of the month will relocate to Downhead.

Please refer to “What’s On”, which will have all the information you will require.

Please note that the Easter Day Service on 1st April at 11.00 will be Holy Communion and will take place at Downhead.
